Summary

At 33 years of age, Allen is no longer the dominant player he was just a few years ago when he posted a 22-sack season, but he was still productive so it was a surprise the Vikings decided to cut him loose. His tackle numbers have fallen off a bit, but he has remained very consistent as a pass rusher with double digit sacks in each of the past seven seasons. He should provide a significant upgrade over Julius Peppers, whose level of play had deteriorated in recent years. The Bears also signed LaMarr Houston to play the LDE spot, and the two figure to rejuvenate a pass rush that has slumped of late. The move to a division rival with better surrounding talent figures to help Allen remain a DE1 for at least another year or two. (May 26)
