Nate Allen back with Raiders

Earlier this week, the Raiders parted ways with safety Nate Allen shortly before his $4.9 million salary for the year would have become guaranteed.

The move didn’t cost the Raiders any dead money under the cap and freed up space to use on other acquisitions. Or re-acquisitions in the case of Allen.

The Raiders announced Thursday that they have brought Allen back to the roster. They didn’t announce the terms, but it’s a good bet that it is for less than the guaranteed salary he was set this season to make before getting bounced and not as long as the four-year, $23 million deal they signed him to before last season.

Allen only played in five games for the Raiders last season because of a knee injury and had 14 tackles and an interception while making three starts. Allen spent his first five seasons with the Eagles.

    Allen was drafted by the Eagles with the 2nd round pick that the Redskins traded to them for Donovan McNubbs. What a horrible deal.

    History would indicate that Reggie didn’t overpay. Allen needs to step his game up – was inconsistent last season. He won’t be replacing Woodson.

    maybe with Ray Ray Armstrong gone, and not flying and jumping all over the place, he can stay healthy.

    Go Raiders!

    You guys are ridiculous. Reggie continues to screw up free agent signings and since the bar was set so low for so many years, an overpaid player who was cut and resigned for less is somehow indicitive for good GM evaluations.
