Free agent defensive end Jared Allen is making a second visit to Seattle this week to talk again with the Seattle Seahawks and see if they can reach an agreement. ESPN's Ed Werder first reported the news on Wednesday night of Allen's second visit.

Allen first talked to Seahawks officials last week before going to Dallas to speak with the Cowboys. But Dallas signed defensive tackle Henry Melton on Tuesday, ending any chance Allen had of signing with the Cowboys.

Allen returned home to Minnesota to discuss his options with his wife, one of which was whether to retire if he didn't get the money he wanted.

Allen was looking for a deal similar to the one defensive end DeMarcus Ware received from the Denver Broncos for more than $10 million a year for three years.

The Seahawks won't offer anything close to that amount, but might be willing to give Allen a contract of more than $6 million for one year. It's something Allen might consider to have the opportunity to play on a Super-Bowl winning team that has a chance to win another championship.
