Schneider to NFL.com: Door not closed on adding Allen, Finley

Interesting stuff this morning from Seahawks general manager John Schneider in an interview with NFL.com as he said the team could still add Jared Allen and Jermichael Finley to the roster.

And again, there’s a confirmation that Seattle’s offer isn’t where Allen envisioned it would be heading into the talks.

Said Schneider: “We’re limited in what we can do in terms of our cap space and what we want to do with our young football team, and he has a limit, too, in terms of what he can do. There just has to be a balance. We had a great visit, he’s a great guy, has a great family …. anything that we were able to offer was not out of disrespect or anything. It was just trying to fit the pieces together.”

He also said the Seahawks will continue to “stay in touch” with Finley but that his injury situation makes it that the team cannot sign him now.

He also refutes any idea the team would sign Mark Sanchez, which didn’t make sense anyway given that the Seahawks just re-signed Tarvaris Jackson as its backup QB.
