Most of us caught the joke (s), but since we\'re talking about him, anyone got a real opinion on Allen?

He\'s got good size at 6\'2, 245 lbs., but his stats from last season are nothing to write home about. He appeared in 16 games, posting only 49 total stops (33 tackles, 16 assists) with no sacks or interceptions. He did force 2 fumbles, though.

Color me uninspired. Maybe the opening post is not quite as sarcastic as intended!!!

Stats really aren\'t that important for a SLB. They are the guys who take on the blockers and thus allow the other linebackers to tackle the ball carrier.

I\'m intriged by all of our linebackers. Hard to say about any of them. I\'d feel better if we upgraded the MLB or WLB. I ain\'t real hard to please...

He\'s restricted and the suitors outside our team won\'t be many. I like Allen\'s ST\'s ability, that is what he was originally drafted for.

Looking for the Saints to re-sign Allen, and Bring in someone who can battle for the position.
Likely it will be a rookie and Allen will start week one
