“This is what happens when your football career isn’t as successful as your best friend’s.” — Boomer Grigsby.

The Minnesota Vikings’ mullet-sporting defensive end Jared Allen gave NFL.com an exclusive tour of his home in Scottsdale, Ariz.

NFL.com’s player On The Fringe, Grigsby, helped Allen provide this unique tour. Grigsby lives with his buddy Allen, and spent the offseason working out in his garage.
