The Browns signed Allen on Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Allen spent the first six seasons of his career with the Rams but was released to save cap space earlier this offseason. He's played 50 NFL games, starting 32 of them, and he gives Cleveland some valuable depth on the interior of its offensive line. He should compete with 2022 seventh-rounder Dawson Deaton for top backup duties behind starting center Ethan Pocic.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2021
The first year of the veteran's three-year deal with the Rams was marred by multiple injuries that forced the starting center out of a total of ten games. Allen will compete with his replacement, Coleman Shelton, for the center role, with the loser of the battle likely filling in as the right guard.
Allen's value to the Rams was set in March, as he signed a three-year, $24 million deal to remain as the Rams' starting center after being named as an alternate to the Pro Bowl in 2021. Entering his fourth year in the league, Allen will be a stalwart at the position with Coleman Shelton operating as the backup.
Former starting center Austin Blythe signed with the Chiefs during the offseason, so Allen projects to compete for the starting role during training camp. Allen sustained a significant MCL injury in November of 2019, and he hasn't seen the field since. He was healthy to start 2020, but was buried on the depth chart and then sustained another knee injury. Former starting right guard Austin Corbett took starting center reps during spring minicamps, and Allen ran with the second offense while also playing some right guard. Corbett appears to be the better fit for the schematic change the Rams are looking to deploy with their offensive line. However, the organization invested a fourth round pick in Allen in the 2018 NFL Draft, so he'll probably crack the 53-man roster. He has nine career starts, after all.
