Patriots, Ryan Allen Agree To Extension

After having extended kicker Stephen Gostkowski last week, the Patriots wrapped up another key member of their special teams today.’s Adam Schefter reports (via Twitter) that the team has signed punter Ryan Allen to a three-year contract extension.

An undrafted rookie out of Louisiana Tech in 2013, Allen’s been the Patriots’ punter for the past two seasons. He’s averaged 46.1 yards a punt during his career, and he’s landed 54 balls inside the 20. The 25-year-old certainly made a name for himself during this past year’s championship game, when he recorded the longest punt in Super Bowl history.

Pro Football Focus’ advanced metrics (subscription required) aren’t particularly fond of his performance, however. He ranked 20th among 34 punters during his rookie campaign, and he dropped to the bottom six in 2014.

    Pro Football Focus paints with a broad brush and with NO paint!!!
    They are clueless! This guy has a name for changing field positions and coming thru in the worst of situations, Pro Football focus is not focusing, or better has no lense in the focus!
    Check out where they rated Colquitt in Denver are you kidding me!
