Minnesota Vikings’ free agent defensive end Jared Allen is the best player left on the market.
After the Vikings and Allen decided they would be parting ways before the start of free agency, Allen had serious interest from the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks. The Broncos wound up signing former Dallas Cowboys’ star pass rushed DeMarcus Ware, but Allen did take an enjoyable visit to Seattle.
Allen then tripped to Dallas to possibly replace Ware, but upon leaving, reports said Allen would not be signing with the Cowboys.
One reason Allen has had trouble finding a home is that he had steep contract demands, but has supposedly since dropped his asking price.
Now, according to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Allen will visit Seattle again and could sign with the Seahawks soon.
