  • Jared Allen down to 6m/yr?

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...to-this-season

    Feels weird linking a BR but the guy writing it not some no-name blogger.

    "As reported here last week, former Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen was asking for some big money at the start of free agency. His contract hopes may have something to do with the fact that Allen has yet to latch on with a team. Now that the first wave of free agency has passed, Allen's camp has put out the word that he would be willing to sacrifice some money if he thinks he can win a championship. But even if he were to join an upper-echelon team, Allen still is hoping for a salary in the vicinity of $6 million a year. Whether he will get that much at this point is debatable. But the Seattle Seahawks could be the team that fits him best."

    **** the Seahawks and their min-salary QB situation.

    That said, we're around $7 mill and will probably free up $2.5m by cutting Joel Dreesen. We can free up another $3m by letting Jacob Tamme and his 1 TD on 20 catches for 184 yards go.

    So the question is, would you free up $5.5 by cutting the two of them to sign Allen? It would allow us to still have a good $5-6 mill or so for the draft, etc.

    On the flip side, signing him would limit Quanterus Smith. However, he's an unknown.

    no, because i don't have the ability to free up that much money (assuming that's $5.5 in millions). and also because he signed with Seattle.

                Sure hope our 20m QB has that team cured of the lacksidasical go through the motions attitude we saw to conclude the season. 8 points won't get it done in any way, shape or form.

                  We need another WR and a upgrade at OG. That will cure a lot of issues.
                  That and Ball turning into the franchise RB we think he is.

                    I feel about this signing how I imagine fans of other teams must have felt when we signed Ward, Ware, Talib and Sanders...

                        For being the parity league, seems like there's 4 teams clearly above the rest this coming year.

                          Agreed. Maybe throw the colts in as a semi-distant 5th. I've liked their FA moves.
