Jared Allen visits with Seahawks; other teams lining up for pass rusher
Elite pass rusher Jared Allen has completed a visit with the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
Allen spent time with the Seahawks this weekend and is headed back to his Arizona home. Despite Seattle's cap situation, all the players they must still re-sign and the fact they have some strong pass rushing options already, the team has long been interested in him and made inquiries to acquire him from the Vikings before the trade deadline.
Allen has interest in them as well and, as one of very few elite pass rushers still on the market, is drawing interest from several clubs. He is in no rush to make a decision and, if he does not command a deal in the range of the $10 million per season DeMarcus Ware landed, it remains a legitimate possibility Allen retires.
Other teams are lining up visits, too. In the meantime, Allen continues his daily work with his charitable foundation building homes for Wounded Warriors and contemplating his NFL future. No NFL player has more sacks than Allen since he entered the NFL, and Allen posted a more-than-respectable 11.5 sacks last season.
