RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
A 2010 patella tendon tear left Allen's athleticism compromised for a disappointing 2011 season in which he totaled just 59 tackles and two interceptions in 15 games, but there's hope that he'll get better in 2012 as his knee gets back into shape. Still, Allen's skill set is that of a coverage safety, meaning he's not a great bet to post a high tackle total.
