Seattle Seahawks Rumors: Will Jared Allen Sign? (POLL)

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:

    I think he is going to retire. He does not need the money. The thought of a ring might get him to sign? I don’t Think we need him to tell you the truth. He should not earn more than Bennett.

    Allen is facing the auctioneers’ dilemma… What do you sell an item for, that is considered priceless?
    Answer: Whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

    Allen wants to sell his high value services to a contending team, at a fair market price. The problem is that contending teams have already maxed out their high value players (that’s why their contending), and non-contenders don’t want to tie-up cap money for no real reason just because he’d come at a fair market price. Sign low for a contender or retire, that’s his option right now, and Seattle seems to be his best value bet.
