Well, it appears as if Jared Allen will avoid retirement for at least one more year. According to reports, the ten-year NFL veteran has reached the final stages of negotiations on a deal with the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.

Allen, 31 years old, made a second-trip out to Seattle earlier Thursday morning after making a stop in Dallas earlier this week. Jared is currently 12th on the all-time NFL sacks list (128.5 sacks) and will take on an interesting role with the Seahawks.

Jared is the only player in the NFL to have reached double-digit sacks over the past seven seasons and believes that there is still a little more left in the tank.
