Adding Jared Allen to an already stout defense? Sounds like a match made in heaven, which is why NFC counterparts likely shook in their boots when reports leaked suggesting that the Seattle Seahawks had spoken to the talented defensive end.
However, according to Pro Football Talk, Allen and the Seahawks have not spoken.
Yes, it was reported on Tuesday that defensive end Jared Allen’s people are talking to the Seahawks. No, it hasn’t happened.
Per a source with direct knowledge of the situation, the Sehawks have not yet spoken to Allen’s representatives.
Of course, that doesn’t mean the two sides won’t talk – but it hasn’t happened yet.
News leaked this morning suggesting that Allen wants to be paid handsomely and is allegedly okay with walking away from the game if he’s not – though that may be Allen attempting to posture up against teams that have been low balling him.
Fact of the mater is, Allen is still a 30-year-old pass rusher who is going to be hitting a decline in the somewhat near future. If he wants a mega-deal, he’s barking up the wrong tree.
