Jared Allen‘s agent said on Friday that his client was going to take the weekend to decide if he would take an offer from the Seahawks, but his decision has still yet to be made, as of Monday night.
Pete Carroll is in Orlando, Fla., right now but he spoke in an interview with SiriusXM Radio on Monday — and he doesn’t know any more than anyone else does regarding Allen’s decision, per SportspressNW.com.
“No, we don’t have anything right now,” Carroll said, speaking from the NFL owners’ meetings in Orlando. “It’s a big business decision for him. We also have a lot of work to do on our own roster. We’re very excited about extending players and stuff like that. So we have a lot of concerns and nothing is really easy. We can’t move as quickly as everybody would like.”
Allen was thought to have signed with the Seahawks last week after visiting Seattle for the second time during the free agency period.
That turned out to be untrue, though the Seahawks reportedly made an offer to the defensive end, one he was expected to accept or decline by Sunday night.
ESPN.com said the deal in question is believed to for two years at $6 million per season.
The Seattle Times reported that the Seahawks “have a little more than $15 million left on its 2014 salary cap” and that they are trying to save money to pay players like Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson and Earl Thomas next season.
For now, however, the Seahawks will have to wait.
Allen will hopefully make his decision this week and we will find out if he will return to the NFL in a Seahawks jersey (or a different team’s) or retire at age 31.
