NFL Free Agent Rumors: Jared Allen using weekend to weigh Seattle Seahawks contract offer

It’s been said that free agent defensive end Jared Allen is allegedly mulling over three teams – one of which is apparently the Seattle Seahawks.

Allen has visited the Seahawks twice and it was reported that a deal between the two sides was close, but Allen left Seattle without a deal and returned home where he’s apparently mulling over contractual details this weekend.

Thursday, free-agent defensive end Jared Allen made his second visit to Seattle Seahawks headquarters in less than a week, yet he left without a deal.

Allen, who had 11.5 sacks last season with the Minnesota Vikings, reportedly will use the weekend to think over the Seahawks’ offer. He was at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center on Sunday in Renton and visited Thursday with his wife, Amy.

Reports have suggested that Allen originally wanted upwards of $12 million dollars per season before dropping his price tag down to around $10 million per season.

And while teams would likely have no problem signing Allen to a one-year contract with those type of figures, investing three or four years into Allen at such a rate is a different story.

Regardless, it appears we’ll have a resolution on the Allen situation relatively soon.
