Cowboys could be a wild-card for Jared Allen


Free-agent Jared Allen is looking for a “fair contract” and a “chance to win.”

And yet he still could be interested in the Cowboys.

As Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported earlier on Sunday, Allen did indeed visit the Seahawks on Sunday. Rapoport also pointed out that Allen could make another visit this week.

A source with knowledge of Allen’s visit to Seattle suggests that the next team Allen visits could be the Cowboys.

Dallas definitely has a need. With DeMarcus Ware gone and Anthony Spencer a free agent, the Cowboys have added Jeremy Mincey from the Broncos.

The Bears previously have been identified as a team with interest in Allen. Chicago has cut Julius Peppers, but has signed LaMarr Houston.

Allen, who made $73 million in six years with the Vikings, could be in no rush to sign. Last year, John Abraham joined the Cardinals in July.

During two seasons playing with Brett Favre, Allen may have learned the value of showing up in the middle of August.
