Report: Jared Allen heads home happy, but without contract
SEATTLE — After reports that 4-time Pro Bowl Defensive End Jared Allen signed with the Seahawks –with some Tweets coming from Seahawks players themselves — NFL.com reported Allen had left Seattle without an offer Thursday.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.Com:
Rapoport’s tweet came after hours of speculation that Allen had indeed signed with the Hawks. The Hawks’ own Kam Chancellor even congratulated the heralded ex-Minnesota Viking on a deal with the Hawks Twitter, only to quickly retract his own statement.
Allen has also reportedly been in talks with the Denver Broncos and the Dallas Cowboys.
A 31-year-old veteran, Allen secured 11.5 sacks for the Vickings in 2013, and 22 in 2011. He’s largely considered to be one of the league’s best pass rushers.
