Jared Allen visited with the Seattle Seahawks…twice. We were led to believe that a deal was all but signed. Allen was going to join the Legion of Boom and make the best defense in the NFL even better.
And then, everything went sideways.
Or did it? Ed Werder of ESPN called this process a bit “unusual,” but is that just because the media read too much into the second visit? Maybe the guy just realized that he wants more time to ponder his options.
After all, this could be Allen’s last big contract in the NFL. He has stated that he wants to chase a championship, but he also wants to be compensated for his services. That is tough balancing act in a league that is not kind to older players. At Allen’s age, what he does to his body in the next year or two may have a lasting impact on the rest of his life.
So, is he coming? Do you have a hunch either way? Let us know in this poll:
Leave us a comment on why you made your selection. This weekend, we may finally have some resolution to the ongoing rumors. Then again, Allen could reject Seattle’s offer and a whole new round of rumors could begin.
