Entering his age-33 season, Allen’s played with the Steelers in every season since 2010. Pittsburgh re-signed Allen after the Cowboys cut him in 2013. The former Buccaneers fourth-round pick in 2004 started four games for Pittsburgh last year.
Pro Football Focus gave Allen a modest minus-3.6 grade last season in 310 snaps.
Terms of the deal are not known, but it would be surprising if it’s for much more than the veteran minimum. Allen earned $955K last season.
