Jared Allen signs with the Bears

While you were sleepingĀ  this morning, the Chicago Bears announced they had signed defensive end Jared Allen.

Allen, who visited Seattle twice last week, signed a four-year deal with the Bears worth a possible $32 million, with $15.5 million guaranteed:

That’s way above the two-year, $12 million deal that the Seahawks were thought to have offered. Seattle coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider each confirmed that the Seahawks were limited in what they could do offer Allen.

After visiting Seattle last week, Allen was reported to want to take the weekend to mull his options. There were reports of another team being involved aside from Seattle, and those proved true today with the announcement that he had signed with the Bears.

The Bears had also been thought to have heavily pursued Seattle’s Michael Bennett before Bennett re-signed with the Seahawks.

Allen’s decision means Seattle has still signed just two free agents who were not their own — receiver Taylor Price and OL Stephen Schilling.
