Chiefs free agent defensive end Allen Bailey will visit the Seahawks on Tuesday, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Bailey previously visited the Patriots and Panthers, but remains unsigned.
Bailey, 30, has spent his entire career to date with the Chiefs. Last year, the 2011 third-round pick put up a big season as just the right time – his six sacks, 38 tackles, and two forced fumbles put him on the radar for multiple contenders this offseason. But, for what it’s worth, Bailey ranked as just the No. 91 interior defender among 112 qualifiers, per Pro Football Focus.
The Seahawks mostly use a 4-3 scheme, but as head coach Pete Carroll likes to say, they do so with 3-4 personnel. That would work for Bailey, who could offer support at defensive end while also contributing on the interior alongside Jarran Reed. Reed, who broke out with a career-best 10.5 sacks last season, should be bookended by Quinton Jefferson and Frank Clark next season, provided that Clark is not traded in the coming weeks.
