Tampa Bay Resigns Will Allen For One Year

Tampa Bay has re-signed S Will Allen to a one-year worth a maximum of $2.35 million.
The Buccaneers are in danger of losing S Jermaine Phillips, who is currently testing the free agent, and Allen provides depth and experience for Tampa Bay. If Phillips signs with another team, Tampa Bay will likely start S Sabby Piscitelli and Allen will be able to backup him and S Tanard Jackson.
Allen has started in 24 games for Tampa Bay since being drafted by the Bucs (fourth round) in 2004. He was Tampa Bay’s starting safety in 2006 when the Bucs finished 4-12, but Bucs Coach Raheem Morris has always loved Allen’s athletic ability and his special teams contributions.
Last season, Allen had 11 tackles and appeared in all 16 games.
