According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New York Jets attempted to sign Jared Allen prior to him agreeing to a deal with the Bears.
Another sleeper team on Jared Allen: Jets. Rex Ryan spoke to Allen last week, Jets asst. Karl Dunbar coached Allen in Minn. Jets wanted in.

That was a no-brainer for Allen. Not sure why he would sign with the Jets when they’re not even a playoff team.
