    Ya him last year is the best DL we have this year, probably him this year is to, but that's a much bigger question for the investment.

    I wonder if he would take a 2-3 year deal at about 4.5-5 million?

    Allen was quoted saying he wants what he thinks his fair value is and if he doesn't get it he would be comfortable retiring. We'll see what that is.

    Allen had 11.5 sacks last year. More than any of the top three ends taken in free agency. Yes he is older, but he is still productive. He is probably worth what other DE free agents got money wise. He is probably looking for at least a three year with guaranteed money. In time, his market value will be established. He would be a great addition to the Bears, but a bit too expensive.

    Where does Allens value drop off after the Houston and Young signings kick in ?

    A third DE in FA ?

    With the young signing, the Allen ship has sailed imo
