The San Francisco 49ers looked like they might be a team that was interested in jumping into the Jared Allen sweepstakes, but according to Tim Kawakami, the team is not involved in any of the trade talk for him. The Seahawks were believed to be involved in a possible deal as well, but that fire has died down as well.
I am sure the 49ers name was involved because the Seahawks were listed as a possibility. The 49ers likely would have tried to keep Allen away form the Seahawks in a bidding war. Why not looking into adding a pass rusher onto the roster.
All the talk is going around though in order to drive the prices up from other teams. We will find out soon enough if any team makes a trade before the deadline at 4pm Eastern time.
Jared Allen is one of the hot names that has been floating around. Teams like the 49ers, Seahawks, Broncos and Cowboys have been teams that have been mentioned.
