Falcons sign safety Allen to three-year extension

August 6 2018 11:41 PM

Ricardo Allen has agreed a three-year contract extension with the Atlanta Falcons.

The Falcons on Monday announced that free safety Allen has sign a new deal, which is reported to be worth $19.5million.

Allen had signed a $2.914million second-round restricted free-agent tender earlier this offseason.

News of the signing comes after the team agreed to a revised deal with Julio Jones last week that will net the veteran wide receiver an additional $2.9million in 2018 with a team promise to negotiate a long-term deal before the 2019 season.

Allen, 26, was selected by the Falcons in the fifth round of the 2014 draft. He has started 45 games and played 2,748 defensive snaps over his first three seasons in Atlanta.
