Report: Jared Allen To Seattle Seahawks


Former Chiefs defensive end Jared Allen is going to the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN’s Ed Werder.

Pass-rusher Jared Allen has agreed to sign with the Seattle Seahawks and is in the process of finalizing a contract with the Super Bowl champions, according to league sources.

Barring unforeseen developments, Allen intends to sign as soon as Thursday while completing his second visit with coach Pete Carroll and the team. In all likelihood, the team had to persuade Allen to accept being a situational player on its defensive line, a unit that was pivotal as Seattle dominated Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl.

Allen was never really a fit for the Chiefs and what they do defensively, but it still would have been fun to see him in a Chiefs uniform again.

Chiefs fans will still get a chance to see him at Arrowhead as the Chiefs will host Seattle at some point this season. Be sure to mark whatever day the Chiefs play the Seahawks as Jared Allen Home Coming Day.

    Well it won’t be as hard as seeing Gonzo dunk in Arrowhead in a Falcon’s uniform, but it won’t be fun to see Smith cow-tied. Here’s hoping it’s only once.
