Seahawks close to a deal with Jared Allen

Britain Steelers Vikings Football AP

The Seahawks built a Super Bowl defense in part by signing veteran pass-rushers in bulk.

They’re close to signing their best one yet.

According to Ed Werder of ESPN, the Seahawks are working on the final touches of a deal with Vikings free agent defensive end Jared Allen.

The 31-year-old Allen had 11.5 sacks last year for the Vikings, so it’s not as if he’s some out-to-pasture old guy hanging on.

And adding his presence to a defense that already had plenty of attitude and aptitude is only going to make them better.

    Best in the west. Hopefully it’s on the cheap

  2. paulsmith107 says: Mar 20, 2014 3:28 PM

    Depending on price it’s a great sign by Seattle

  3. redfield11 says: Mar 20, 2014 3:28 PM

    Scary. Best way to describe that defense is straight up just scary.

  4. kevjones75 says: Mar 20, 2014 3:29 PM

    Nice signing.

    Looking forward to a hard fought game with you this year!

    Seattle – where Vikings go to be successful

  8. drwbrsdmndsnxplntn says: Mar 20, 2014 3:31 PM

    The Seahawks obsession with the Vikings continues. Stage 5 clinger alert, they may have won a Super Bowl, but they are still creepy stalkers.

  9. FlashPatterson says: Mar 20, 2014 3:32 PM

    Jared Allen is an amazing player when he plays on an amazing defense, and he’s just average when on a bad defense. Don’t be surprised to see 15 sacks next year.

  10. kurtjacob2987 says: Mar 20, 2014 3:33 PM

    Now all the hawks need in the draft is a big time WR (Lee, Benjamin, etc…) and a RG; then just depth afer that… maybe another F.A. signing just to put a ribbon on a hopeful repeat season!!

  11. fissels says: Mar 20, 2014 3:33 PM

    Thats a good move for both Allen and the Seahawks

  12. trollhammer20 says: Mar 20, 2014 3:33 PM

    “Take all of our Vikings castaways that weren’t good enough to make our 53 man roster, there’s a reason we didn’t resign them.”

    How does that conversation go, exactly?

    “We really value your contributions, and we like you a lot. In fact, we like you so much that we want you to go somewhere where you’ll actually have an opportunity to play for a championship. You deserve better than us. Good luck in Seattle!”

  19. oreo51 says: Mar 20, 2014 3:35 PM

    The nice thing about playing for the Vikings is the players all have a pathway to a Super Bowl ring.

    Hawks were good without him and a little more rotational pass rush is not gonna make an astronomical difference. Wasted money imo

    This is an excellent pick up for the Hawks. I’ve followed his career since his rookie year in KC and the guy is character. He also has a presence that is unmistakable and has the skill to back it up. I’m very happy with this pick up.

    Let’s see the numbers, but it sounds great. My money says he’ll be a rotational pass rusher, and we draft a new Leo end. My money is on Shazier from Ohio State.

  39. tindeaux says: Mar 20, 2014 3:41 PM

    man, the seahawks defense keeps on getting better…

  40. dwarftosser says: Mar 20, 2014 3:41 PM

    The best defense in the league is getting even better. Still, I think they are investing their money on the wrong side of the ball right now… you are not going to repeat* with an offense that mediocre.

    (*this may be jealously affecting my brain)

    Best of luck to jared allen on his quest to winning a super bowl. Can the seahawks win it again this year? With all these offseason moves they are getting better and better. Im very curious to hear how much they are gonna pay him.

  47. redandgoldhitman52 says: Mar 20, 2014 3:43 PM

    old and washed up. im glad seahawks signed him. now that should slow down there d and expose there holding happy corners.

  48. blowfishes says: Mar 20, 2014 3:43 PM

    Jared Allen is awesome, and as a Vikings fan, I wish him the very best.

    The Vikings are a couple of years away from seriously competing, so I will be hoping the Seahawks win the big one with Allen as part of their team.

    Who knows… he might return to the Vikings for a final swan song in a few seasons just in time to bring a SuperBowl to our new stadium :)

  49. axespray says: Mar 20, 2014 3:44 PM

    How many damn pro bowl Defensive Ends do they need there, jeez.

    Just hogging ‘em all.

  50. dethsupport says: Mar 20, 2014 3:45 PM

    Look what Allen did with a terrible secondary in Minnesota.

    With Seattle’s secondary, Allen will be blowing up QBs next year.

  51. fdugrad says: Mar 20, 2014 3:46 PM

  54. 33vikes says: Mar 20, 2014 3:46 PM

  55. benihanagt says: Mar 20, 2014 3:47 PM

    Avril on one side, Allen on the other, Mebane and Bennett up the middle. That’s a pretty good D-Line.

  58. penvik says: Mar 20, 2014 3:48 PM

    Yes, there is a reason we don’t want Jared Allen. He’s not what he used to be, Seahawks will learn the hard way. Same with Harvin, thx for the one sided deal for him too. That one will help us for multiple years paying dividends. There were games over the last 2 years that I wondered why Jared was even in the NFL. His speed was his biggest factor along with his work ethic. That tends to break down with age unfortunately and Allen has past that mark. I’m really hoping Seattle gets this done. They won’t even be a playoff team next year, you heard it here first.
    If Russell Wilson goes to most any other team at the draft he’s a bust by now. That’s the problem with the NFL, Kapernick is the same. They are both products of their system. Not above average quarterbacks.

    As long as the NFL focuses on QB’s and WR’s, the Seahawks will win SB’s. What’s the league gonna do when QB’s hurry their throws and WR’s get smothered by LOB.

    Great guy, but he doesn’t show up for prime time games.

  68. jebdamone says: Mar 20, 2014 3:57 PM

    from a vikings fan: jared earned every cent of the deal we gave him and will likely earn whatever the hawks decide to pay him. he has been nothing but a model citizen since he’s been here.

    he is a nuisance. if you don’t have an elite LT you double him or you are done. he’s not great against the run but he is relentless, tips passes, and forces fumbles. he really needs to stop playing every down though. face it jared, you’re a bad man but you get tired.

    i would rather have him than ware at this point in their careers. part of the reason jared’s numbers were down last year is that our DBs were so terrible qbs were finding guys open in under 3 seconds. give him an extra second or two and he will have more than 11.5 next year.

  69. purple1967 says: Mar 20, 2014 3:58 PM

  70. footballace says: Mar 20, 2014 4:00 PM

    Jared Allen might be able to put up double digit sacks at The Clink. The Seahawks should be able to go 8-0 at home again this year.

    2 years ago they couldn’t find Seattle on a map…now there are 100 million “12th man” out there. bla bla bla
    1 and done for the Seahawks.

  75. coolherc says: Mar 20, 2014 4:07 PM

    It’s a gas listening to Vikings fans cry and whine constantly. Now all the claims that Allen is too old when the guy had 11.5 sacks last season for a team that was pretty much out of contention the first month of the season. An absolute gas! It’s the sole reason I visit this board.

  76. ariani1985 says: Mar 20, 2014 4:07 PM

    Calling this the poison pill effect. Minnesota is still getting pillaged from the Seahawks for taking Hutch. Hawks are still showing them that they should have never did what they did. I know, a lil too much…

  83. hawksforever says: Mar 20, 2014 4:17 PM

    11.5 sacks playing on the Vikings pitiful defense would translate to 20+ sacks for the Hawks!

    Vikings should just pack up their franchise and quit the NFL. Granted there would be less laughter in the NFL but there would be more respect!

    Percy Harvin. He scored a touchdown for the Seahawks during the first 12 seconds of the second half of the Super Bowl about a month ago.

    The ‘hawks didn’t really need his touchdown, but it was still a positive contribution.

    I am glad for him. The Vikings should be a better team this year (where are the QB and the Linebackers Mr. Spielman?) and will be more entertaining to watch. But this is no way a superbowl year. Good luck Jared, you were a great contributor and good team mate. All players want that ring and I for one hope you get it.

  90. sweetnlow44 says: Mar 20, 2014 4:25 PM

    The thing most people don’t know who don’t watch the Seahawks regularly is that most of their sacks last year were coverage sacks. The d-line was good, but lacked a true pass rusher until Clemons started getting back his health. Playing with the best secondary in the league with that home field advantage, it’s not likely that Allen’s sack numbers will go down. Great pickup after having to cut ties with Clemons.

  91. juststeel says: Mar 20, 2014 4:27 PM

    Defense good enough to win 10 games with a high school offense just got better

  92. mrjackson206 says: Mar 20, 2014 4:27 PM

    As a Niners fan, this move doesn’t scare me one bit. Seattle is known for having a good d line. Their offense has regressed.

  93. sandersmarcus10 says: Mar 20, 2014 4:28 PM

    Now i guess all the Allen fans are going to hate him like Harvin what tools

  94. deltaoracle says: Mar 20, 2014 4:28 PM

    Glad that other fanbases get a little taste of the Minnesota mentality from time to time that Packer fans have to put up with non-stop.
    See, 5-10-1 team loses Jared Allen but adds Captain Munnerlyn, and that = dynasty to them.
    Having said that, there are some Viking fans showing class as Allen leaves, and a rare event like that is worthy of noting and commending.

  95. oshkoshoz says: Mar 20, 2014 4:28 PM

    Not sure I agree with your police work there footballace: Seattle got beat at home last year by Arizona I believe, so going 8-0 “again” (your word) is inaccurate.

    If Jerad Allen the Seahawks agree on a contract, Seattle is going to like what they see from Jerad on and off the field. This Vikings fan always knew he was never going to take a play, let along a series or a game, off.

    _____________________________

    Burleson played well while here. Sidney Rice had a couple of great catches in the playoffs last year that helped us advance (that one against the Redskins, up against the sidelines, feet barely in bounds…wow, just wow). And Percy Harvin returned a kickoff in the Super Bowl for a TD, led the Super Bowl in rushing yards, and earned a Super Bowl ring.

    Or by “positive contribution” did you mean book a boat cruise with some strippers out on the Puget Sound?

  100. ilovefoolsball says: Mar 20, 2014 4:35 PM

    Good signing if it happens.

    I’m not one who will be jumping on the Seahawks’ bandwagon so quickly. Does anyone remember the last time that a Superbowl winner returned to the big game the next year?
    It was 10 years ago when the Patriots returned to the Superbowl in 2005 after beating the Panthers in 2004.

  101. mediasloppy says: Mar 20, 2014 4:37 PM

    I’m happy for Allen. I just want to see the numbers as to how much of a price tag he put on himself. He was great in MN and earned his 73 million.

  102. rbirving says: Mar 20, 2014 4:38 PM

    I wish Jared the best, whenver he isn’t playing against my Vikes. He was worth every cent we paid him and more. He was an outstanding member of our community and will bring those very same things to the Seahawk organization and Seattle.

    Nothing is more difficult than repeating a SuperBowl win.

    As with every other season, injuries and how your team is able to respond to them is the key to making it through an NFL season.

    It will be interesting to see how well they do going through an entire season with target on their backs. Every team will be giving that extra effort to try and knock off the champions, that’s the nature of the game.

  104. jermainewiggins says: Mar 20, 2014 4:52 PM

    A viking going to seattle? Now we just wait for him to fade out and disappear as every other viking has done. The only relevant player they got was percy and he didnt even do anything for them, but since they won a sb the seahwak fans claim they “took us to the woodshed” in that trade but you gave up a 1st 3rd and a 7th and had to pay a guy a hugecontract that played 1 game Iin the reg season and missed the nfc champ.

    Btw one superbowl isnt a dynasty so quit saying the dynasty is sealed bc you signed an aging veteran on his last cpl years to replace a more capable cliff avril.

    God, this is an absolute embarrassment – an embarrassment of riches for the Seahawks.
    There’a nothing more to fear than a great, All Pro player, denied for years on another team, hungry for his first Super Bowl ring and being signed by the best team in football.
    Seattle – it sure looks like two in a row for you guys.

  106. firedup1 says: Mar 20, 2014 4:59 PM

    If they are close to a deal do not let Denver find out about it.

  107. blogatron2000 says: Mar 20, 2014 5:00 PM

    Good deal for JA.

    As a KC fan, I never forgave Carl Peterson for literally running Jared out of town. One of the picks received in the trade did turn into Jamal Charles so that helped a bit but Peterson still screwed up.

    I’ve kept up with Allen all the years with the Vikes and I’m very glad to see him move on and get the chance to play for a ring. He deserves it.

  108. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Mar 20, 2014 5:03 PM

    After 10 years his play may be about to decline, but if he plays like he has the previous 10 years, the rich just got richer.

    Positively great news. 12s will love Allen. He was made to play at Qwest. Outstanding signing.

    Allen will approach 15 sacks on this D.

    The NFC West is the OK Corral. Come out of here a winner and nobody can touch you. Certainly not the Yikings. Yikes is right.

    Jared Allen + Seattle’s doping program = 40 sacks!

    Don’t get me wrong, I like the Vikings but as a big Seahawks fan, it seems like Minnesota is the minor league affiliate for Seattle. Now just move C. Patterson up to the majors and Seattle will be set.

  112. ducksflyhigh says: Mar 20, 2014 5:15 PM

    Playing for the Vikings is just a really extended proday for players. They just go there showcase their talents some more, never win anything, and move on to other teams where they get even better and win championships. Go Hawks!

    It’s going to be an awkward Thursday night season opener for Jared. While they’re hoisting the SB banner and handing out rings, poor Jared will get nothing. Although I hear Minnesota hands out charm bracelets every time they finish in the cellar. There’s some consolation in getting your third bracelet, I suppose.

    I remember 2006 when Viking fans were chortling at us how they stole Hutchinson from us with that dirty “poison pill” deal.

    Well, Viking fans, karma CONTINUES to bite you in the butt for that dirty deal, from Tarvaris Jackson getting a ring, Percy Harvin joining us, to Jared Allen spurning you to pursue a ring with us. And oh yes, let us not forget Tracy Porter, I’m sure you haven’t! #SKOLOL

    “If Russell Wilson goes to most any other team at the draft he’s a bust by now. That’s the problem with the NFL, Kapernick is the same. They are both products of their system. Not above average quarterbacks.”

    Russell played most of the year without the o-line starters.
    I do understand that the defense won a lot of the games, I think it is a stretch to say he would be a “bust” though.

  116. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Mar 20, 2014 5:32 PM

    I wonder if Jared remembers when his previous team signed Brett Favre and everybody assumed they were a lock to win the Super Bowl…

  117. radar8 says: Mar 20, 2014 5:35 PM

    The NFC West is scary-deep in defensive talent. Between Seattle, San Francisco and Arizona, the West has most of the league’s defensive talent.

  118. Waffle 2.0 says: Mar 20, 2014 5:38 PM

    when did Seattle fans surpass GB fans as the biggest tools in the country?

  119. lnfinite says: Mar 20, 2014 5:39 PM

    Good luck Jared, that is if you make the team……

  120. seals1 says: Mar 20, 2014 5:56 PM

    Allen had some great years with purple so I have to hand it to him. Bailing for Seattle confirms the trade should have gone down. Allen was on the high horse at the deadline now we will see what he plays for. He was tired at the end of last year so if he looks like a kid this year my suspicion about enhancement will be true.

    Good luck 69

  121. steelpalace302 says: Mar 20, 2014 6:04 PM

    According to many sites Allen is going home to decide between the seaquacks and Dallas for the next day or so. As a Cowboys fan(AMERICAS TEAM) I hope he does not sign with the Cowboys. He is washed up and we just got rid of the washed up sack leader of the NFL why would we want a year younger not as good pass rusher ? He want Ware money and is washed up just like ware is. Give me a break he might have been a kinda good deal for the NFL min or maybe alittle more. That’s al.

  122. shaggytoodle says: Mar 20, 2014 6:05 PM

    He deserves a chance at a title run, he has had some issues in the past, but has seemed to get things back in line.

    Football players have 2 goals, win a title, and take care of the family. Anyone in that has played for the Vikings know, only one of those get taken care of in Minnesota.

  123. stagedoorjohnny says: Mar 20, 2014 6:25 PM

    Seahawks or Cowboys?
    At this point it sure looks like the Seahawks.

    Is there more a pathetic football franchise than the Vikings?

    God, what an embarrassment Minnesota has been to the NFL.

  124. pats777 says: Mar 20, 2014 6:44 PM

    Will they have any money left for Wilson and Sherman extensions, that’s the billion dollar question.

    The Seattle Seahawks: Earning SB rings for Vikings one player at a time.

  126. jprcox says: Mar 20, 2014 7:08 PM

    Say what you want about dream team, Seattle was that last year and we won the SB. Difference is we didn’t go sign 1/2 our team in a single year – its MOSTLY grown from draft and then supplemented by vets.

    The perfect combo.

  127. tjohn25 says: Mar 20, 2014 8:29 PM

    Seattle will have a good chance to repeat, but you need more than that to be a “dynasty”. Next off-season they’ll be doing what the Ravens did last year to pay for Wilson’s $19.5 mil/year raise. And Sherman and Revis will be competing for the biggest CB contract.

  128. hawkstradamus says: Mar 20, 2014 8:32 PM

    So I guess us Hawk fans should get used to drafting an #32……darn

    bahhh, listen to all the haders..

    LOVE IT, whiners fans are getting blown up left and right, no where to run no where to hide..

    whatchya gonna do, whatchya gonna do when they come for you?

    and lol at the moron that said they still have to play the whiners twice if not 3 times..

    HILARIOUS, whines have yet to play in their new stadium so what do you know?

    Hawks already know what time it is in the Woodshed… GIT SUM

    I am betting whiners are the dwellers in the NFCW wont make PS… boo hoo hoo…. “I want my mommy”

    watch all the whiners jump ship wanting heads to roll..

    absolutely hilarious that crew is, forty whiners, more like a couple hunnerd thousand

    Only in Minneeeesoooota can you go from winning the preseason paper championship only to go down in total flames year, after year, after year.

  131. kanemoney says: Mar 21, 2014 12:22 AM

    How is 1.5 sacks washed up? There are players over 30 who bring it…

  132. goldrush94 says: Mar 21, 2014 4:35 AM

    Good signing by the champs. Secondary got a little thin, but adding Allen will give the opposing QB less time to get to that second level.

    SF and SEA should be at it again next year for the NFC crown.
    GO NINERS

  133. anygivensundayfan says: Mar 21, 2014 4:24 PM

    While Jared Allen would be a great get for the Seahawks, I am pleased to learn than JS/PS are only offering a value contract that needs some time to think over. Tells me they are continuing to be good cap stewards in preparation to extend/retain ET, Sherm and Wilson in the near future.

    Jared Allen looks like he’s worth every penny and no hard feelings if he chases the money and not the ring. Although, at this point in his career, having plenty of the former and zero of the latter surely has to inform his decision.

  134. dirtydrew says: Mar 21, 2014 5:58 PM

    With all this money tied up, singing Russell Wilson will deplete this team.

  135. rickytheviking says: Mar 21, 2014 6:01 PM

    Thank you Jared for all of your hard work

    Good luck in Seattle!!!

  136. rickytheviking says: Mar 21, 2014 6:02 PM

    Anyone wanna buy my Vikings Allen jersey cheap?

  137. rickytheviking says: Mar 21, 2014 6:03 PM

    Sorry Jared for not getting you a ring

    Signed:Brad Childress & Brett Favre

  138. dzsf12 says: Mar 22, 2014 10:48 AM

    SEATTLE FANS

    good signing… J Allen is a gamer, he will be a difference maker….

    Seattle offense might be the Niners 2009-2010 offense of 3 and outs

    but their defense…real nice

    but Seattle fans, you need home field advantage if you will make it to the SB again…. Seattle wont be able to win on the road in the playoffs
