The man who first reported that Vikings defensive end Jared Allen could be traded now reports that the Seahawks are not in the hunt to trade for him.
Contrary to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that, while two teams are indeed exploring the possibility of trading for Allen, the Seahawks are not in the mix — and they have not been talking to the Vikings.
It’s unclear at this point whether a deal will happen. Coincidentally (or not), the Vikings signed free-agent defensive end Justin Trattou on Tuesday. If Allen goes, Trattou would keep the head count of defensive ends at the same number.
The window for making trades closes at 4:00 p.m. ET.
