Eagles And Safety Nate Allen Agree To One More Year


Adam Shefter reported a little while ago that the Eagles and safety Nate Allen have agreed to a one year contract.

Allen, a second round draft pick in 2010 from South Florida had an OK season last year. He managed to record 82 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble and one interception. He started every game last season as well. Allen’s career numbers are 262, tackles, three sacks, 24 pass deflections, six interceptions and two forced fumbles. Respectable numbers but not great. It seems Eagles head coach Chip Kelly likes to keep one veteran on the squad to help the new-comers as well as compete for the position.

As the writing of this article the details of the contract came in over twitter via Adam Shefter:

Good move? I guess we wait and see. Sound off below to tell us if you think this is a good move or not.

    Good move he looked like a different player compared to recent years. Everyone keeps asking why and saying e sucks but obviously the team thinks highly of him. He played damn well and had good instincts for the ball, got a lot of tackles too.

    He played better with Davis running the D. Everyone busts his chops, but with a legit partner (NOT CHUNG!!) maybe his potential comes out. He should be handcuffed to Jenkins for the next 6 months…

    Eagles site had him at 3rd on team with 94 tackles I would definitely keep a safety with those numbers. Think he’s really found a niche in this system want to see him with 2 years in a row with same coordinate. This will be first time in his career he has that.
