Seattle GM Says Jared Allen Could Still Become a Seahawk
The free agent defensive lineman visited Seattle twice, but no deal was announced. General Manager John Schneider says not to rule anything out.
“I don’t think the door’s closed by any stretch of the imagination,” Seahawks GM John Schneider told NFL.com on Tuesday.
Allen, a 10-year veteran who played with Kansas City and Minnesota, was in Seattle last week for a second meeting, but said that he would consider the offer over the weekend. No announcement on a decision has been made as of yet.
Allen has reportedly looking for a deal worth $10 million per year, but it’s doubtful any team has offered him anything close. He’s said to be mulling retirement if he doesn’t get the figure he’s asking for.
“It’s a big business decision for him,” Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said on Sirius XM radio Monday. “There’s really not much to comment about it right now.”
