CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bears were looking to jolt their struggling defence. Micheal Haley Jersey . How does adding Jared Allen sound? The Bears agreed to a four-year contract with the five-time Pro Bowl defensive end Wednesday, replacing one accomplished pass rusher with another as they rebuild a defence that ranked among the leagues worst last season. A person with knowledge of the agreement told The Associated Press that Allen will get $15.5 million guaranteed on a deal that could be worth as much as $32 million. The person requested anonymity because the terms have not been announced. Allens deal can be voided down to three years and $24 million, but the first two years of his salary and a roster bonus next March are fully guaranteed. The 31-year-old Allen spent the previous six years with the NFC North rival Minnesota Vikings. He will take over for Julius Peppers, who signed with Green Bay as a free agent after being released by the Bears. Chicagos defence ranked 30th in the NFL last season and was 32nd and last against the run. "This is another important step in our continued efforts to build our team towards a championship level," general manager Phil Emery told the teams website. In a statement, Allen thanked his teammates and coaches in Minnesota along with the fans. "I can only hope that I have left with you all, with even a fraction of the positive support and impact you have had on my life, my foundation and my family," he said. "I am very excited about this next chapter in my career with the Chicago Bears and cant wait to see what the future holds for us." He had 11 1/2 sacks last season, reaching double digits in sacks for seven straight years, and is considered a solid run defender. Allen also had talks with the Seahawks and Cowboys. His move to the Bears adds plenty of intrigue to the NFC North picture. The Vikings acquired Allen from Kansas City in 2007 and signed him to a six-year, $73 million contract that at the time made him the highest-paid defensive player in the league. Allen was one of the most-feared pass rushers in the NFL over the life of that deal. In 2011, he had 22 sacks. He made $17 million last season, and the Vikings, who were coming off a disappointing 5-10-1 record, were looking to get younger at the position. "We wish Jared the best as he turns to the next chapter of his NFL career," general manager Rick Spielman said in a statement. "Not only was he an outstanding player on the field for the Vikings over his six seasons, but he also helped change lives in our community through his charitable work. Jared will always be a fan favourite, and we hope he stays involved with the Vikings franchise in years to come." Minnesota signed Everson Griffen to a big contract to take Allens place and also said goodbye to stalwart defensive tackle Kevin Williams in a revamped front four under new coach Mike Zimmer. The Vikings did express some interest in having Allen return, but it became clear early in the process that the numbers wouldnt match up. Allen said he wasnt looking to simply chase Super Bowl rings or become a situational pass rusher at this stage of his career, so he took his time trying to find the right fit. When Allen hit the market with Peppers and the Cowboys DeMarcus Ware, three of the most accomplished defensive ends of their generation were available. Ware signed with Denver, and Peppers got a three-year, $26.5 million deal with $7.5 million guaranteed from the Packers earlier in free agency. "We believe hes going to come in hungry and excited to be part of our football team, and we believe hell fit right in with the other new players that weve added and the guys that are already on the defensive side of the ball," coach Marc Trestman told the teams site. Allen is by far the signature addition in a busy off-season. Besides letting Peppers go, the Bears brought back two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Charles Tillman on a one-year deal. They also have new defensive ends in Willie Young and Lamarr Houston. They added Ryan Mundy and M.D. Jennings to the mix at safety and signed lineman Israel Idonije, hoping to boost a defence that got shredded last season. The Bears went 8-8 while missing the playoffs for the sixth time in seven years. Now, maybe, they will have the defence to go with an offence that flourished in Trestmans first season as coach. If nothing else, they created a big stir by adding Allen. "A changing of the guard in the .NFCNorth. .69 a Bear! Its looking up for this bunch! Welcome (at)JaredAllen69," star linebacker Lance Briggs wrote on Twitter. Jared McCann Jersey .com) - Colorado may be ahead of the Vancouver Canucks in the Western Conference standings, but they are a club that the Avalanche may want to avoid in the playoffs. Custom Florida Panthers Jerseys . Englands only win in the four most recent trips north had been tight, and Scotland was expected after losing 28-6 to Ireland six days ago to show some venom against its archrival. . -- Jacksonville Jaguars rookie receiver Marqise Lee has agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth more than $5 million. HOUSTON -- Andy Pettitte completed his career in a most fitting fashion. The 41-year-old left-hander pitched a five-hitter for his first complete game since 2006, leading the New York Yankees over his hometown Houston Astros 2-1 Saturday. "It couldnt end any better," Pettitte said, trying to hold back tears. Two days after Mariano Riveras finale in front of an emotional crowd at Yankee Stadium, Pettitte followed his teammate into retirement and left only Derek Jeter left from the Core Four who earned five World Series rings with the Yankees since 1996. Pettitte said the last week of this season has been difficult for him. "Its been terrible because I know its over," Pettitte said. "Its a shame you get old." Chris Carter singled with two outs in the ninth, ending a string of 11 straight batters retired by Pettitte. Yankees manager Joe Girardi came to the mound, had a brief conversation with Pettitte, then returned to the dugout. Girardi said he left it up to Pettitte as to whether he wanted to stay in the game. With the crowd on its feet and cameras flashing, J.D. Martinez hit a game-ending groundout to third baseman Eduardo Nunez, giving Pettitte his 26th complete game. Pettitte, who lives in suburban Deer Park, lingered on the field as teammates hugged him -- including Jeter, Rivera and Girardi, Pettittes former catcher. The Astros stood in front of their dugout, applauding, and fans chanted "An-dy! An-dy!" "I dont know how to even take you through it, except I just felt like I wasnt even worthy to have that happening to me," Pettitte said. Houston extended its team-record losing streak to 14 with its 110th loss of the season. The oldest starting pitcher in the major leagues, Pettitte finished this season 11-11 and never had a losing record in 18 major league seasons. He was 256-153 with a 3.85 ERA and 2,448 strikeouts during the regular season and excelled in October, where he compiled a record 19 post-season wins. It was a week of nostalgia for the Yankees. Rivera, the 43-year-old career saves later, was given an emotional home sendoff Thursday night and said Saturday afternoon that he wouldnt pitch during the season-ending series against the Astros. "I told Mo I might finish the game off if youre not in the bullpen," Pettitte said. Rivera was ecstatic that Pettitte finished his career with a complete game. &quuot;I was pulling for him, knowing that he was there alone," Rivera said. Derek MacKenzie Jersey. "This was his game and we just had to cheer for him, and thats what we did -- thats what I did." Girardi compared Riveras last appearance to Pettittes night. "It was a different feel," he said. "Mos was about honouring a man that had meant so much, but this really felt like a playoff game, because we wanted this for him so bad." Pettitte struck out five and walked two in a 115-pitch effort, allowing his only run on Carters RBI groundout in the fourth. With a sharp slider and cutter, he kept the Astros to 0 for 11 with runners on base. "I couldnt have dreamed this would have worked out the way it did," Pettitte said. "Im so thankful and fortunate and blessed and I just feel like God worked this out exactly perfect. Just another day that Ill never forget." Robinson Cano hit an RBI single in the sixth inning, and New York took the lead when Nunez scored on an embarrassing error later in the inning by catcher Matt Pagnozzi, who accidentally spiked the ball while trying to throw to second on an attempted pickoff. "I didnt have a grip and I was trying to stop my arm and what happened happened," Pagnozzi said. "Its pretty tough, especially with the kind of skid were on right now. Having it come down to being the go-ahead run that scored. Yeah, not something that you want to happen." Numerous friends and family of Pettitte were on hand, including former Houston teammate Jeff Bagwell. The pair exchanged a hearty embrace before Pettitte took the mound. Making his 438th start for the Yankees, he tied Whitey Fords team record. "It was fitting," Jeter said. "Its funny how things work out sometimes. I know hes had some good memories here. Hes from here. It was special for him to do it in front of Yankee fans, as well as the Houston fans." NOTES: The Astros 323 losses over three seasons are tied with the 1940-42 Philadelphia Phillies for fourth-most in big league history according to STATS, ahead of only the 1962-64 New York Mets (340), the 1963-65 Mets (332) and the 1915-17 Philadelphia Athletics (324). ... Houston starter Paul Clemens allowed two runs and five hits in 5 1-3 innings. ... Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez said Saturday that he didnt expect to play this weekend because of soreness in his legs.
