Eagles sign S Allen

The Philadelphia Eagles announced they have agreed to terms with safety Nate Allen on a four-year contract.

A 2nd round draft pick (37th overall) of the Eagles in 2010, Allen (6-1, 210) played in 48 career games (39 starts) at South Florida, compiling 224 tackles, 12 pass breakups, nine interceptions and four touchdowns over the course of his career. A team captain as a senior in 2009, Allen earned second-team All-Big East honors after recording 85 tackles and four interceptions.

The Cape Coral, FL, native had an illustrious career as a quarterback at Cape Coral HS. A three-time all-area player, Allen holds all of his high school’s passing records, throwing for over 5,000 yards in his prep career.

To make room on the 80-man roster for Allen, the Eagles released LB/DE Alex Hall.
