Jared Allen trade rumors: Seahawks interested in Vikings pass rusher

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

The Seahawks are reportedly in on Jared Allen as the trade deadline nears.

The Seattle Seahawks are interested in acquiring defensive end Jared Allen from the Minnesota, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Seahawks are reportedly making an "11th-hour push," but the Vikings are also talking to a second, unnamed team.

Daily Norseman: Could Jared Allen move on?

With the trade deadline passing at 4 p.m. ET, serious talks have been relatively quiet around the league despite the usual round of rumors. The Vikings have been thinking about dealing Allen for some time now -- he's set to become a free agent in 2014 and has expressed frustration with the situation in Minnesota. Earlier on Tuesday, FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reported that the Vikings are fielding offers from multiple teams.

Despite his Hall of Fame credentials, Allen would be an odd fit in Seattle, who already spent big on free agents along the defensive line. Cap space is another issue -- Allen is due $7.56 million for the rest of this season. Still, his addition would be a boost to an already fierce defense.

We will continue to update this story as we get closer to the deadline.
