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.
