Will Jared Allen sign with the Seahawks?

He was supposed to make his decision over the weekend, and the weekend is basically over. And, there is no new Jared Allen news. Seahawks fans are still waiting and hoping that Allen signs with Seattle.

It seems as if the Seahawks have the upper hand. Jared Allen visited Seattle two times within a week. There were also reports that he was close to a deal on Thursday, but a couple hours later those reports were denied and they said he would now make his decision on the weekend.

Jared Allen doesn’t want to be a situational pass rusher. He wants to be a full time player for a team and he wants to get paid good money. If he signed with Seattle he would have a role similarly to the one Chris Clemons had. But, I don’t know if he would be a full time player and I’m also not sure if the Seahawks can pay Allen enough money.

But, this really seems to be a great fit for Allen. He is nearing 32 years old, but still can play at a very high level. The Seahawks have had very good recent success with defensive lineman. Pass rushers especially seem to have success, because of the very loud 12th Man and the All-Pro secondary. And, Jared Allen would be joining the reigning World Champions and a team that will be contending for another Super Bowl ring.

So we wait and hope that Jared Allen decides to sign with the Seattle Seahawks. He would be a lot of fun to watch on the Seahawks defense and would make an elite defense even better. So does he choose to play for a Super Bowl contending team (Seahawks) or does he take more money to play for a less talented team. I think we will hear a decision by tomorrow. Go Hawks!!!

Kam Chancellor’s Rise to Greatness

Kam Chancellor is a special player for the Seattle Seahawks and has already achieved greatness in his young career. Seahawks fans have become accustomed to seeing the big safety deliver huge hits against his opponents. He also has provided great pass coverage and even though his interception numbers are lower than those of Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas, he is just as valuable. If you haven’t heard much of Chancellor, then it is time to take notice and appreciate the big time player that he is to the Seattle Seahawks organization.

In college at Virginia Tech, he switched positions many different times. He started playing quarterback, then moved to cornerback, and eventually found his true calling at free safety. Well almost, he now plays strong safety for the Seattle Seahawks. Clearly, Chancellor has a special talent and is a hard worker that can do whatever his coach asks of him and does it well.

When the Seattle Seahawks drafted Kam Chancellor, they picked up a physical, hard hitting safety. But at that time, that was about all he could do. Over the years though, he has developed into a player that can shut down receivers just as good as he can make a highlight reel hit. Chancellor has also become a team leader. He leads the Legion of Boom pregame talks and puts his teammates first, which is demonstrated by his motto, “play for your brothers.” Kam is a classy person and takes his job seriously, his fashion is off the chart and he answers questions in interviews with respect and insightful answers.

Kam Chancellor is now a pro bowl talent and leads the NFC West Champion Seahawks every time they take the field. Recently Chancellor was named a 2nd team all pro and he definitely deserves this award. He came into the league as an afterthought when drafted only in the 5th round. Everyone, except the Seahawks organization would rate the similarly built USC safety Taylor Mays way ahead of Chancellor. But, now Mays, who is playing for the Bengals is the forgotten one, and Chancellor on the other hand, has risen to the top of his position. This example shows the hard work that Kam has put in over the years, in order to be great.

Last offseason the Seattle Seahawks signed Chancellor to a 5 year extension worth up to 34 million. He earned that extension and Hawks fans should be ecstatic that he will be with the team for many years to come. Chancellor will be leading this Seahawks team, hopefully to 3 more wins this season, resulting in a Super Bowl win. But, regardless where the Hawks finish, fans can be confident that this hard hitting safety will be around Seattle for many years to come and will continue to lead the defense with excellent pass coverage and of course his bone crushing hits.

Gonna be writing about a Seattle Seahawks player every day leading up to Saturday. Learn more about this Seahawks team!
