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!!!
