The Cincinnati Bengals announced Saturday that they have agreed to terms with defensive back Jason Allen.

Allen was the 16th overall pick in the 2006 draft. While heís come nowhere near meeting the expectations of his draft status, Allen has carved out a respectable, journeyman-type career and can make plays on the ball. He has ten interceptions over the past two seasons.

Allen, 29, can also play both cornerback and safety. If free agent Reggie Nelson doesnít return, itís possible Allen would compete for the Bengalsí starting free safety job in training camp.

Good luck to Allen, did a job for us while he was here but not someone you really want to have to resort to.

Hopefully we're going to see these kiddie corners come of age.

So in essence we traded Allen for JJo a year apart?

Sweet!

I think, just maybe, we go the better end of that deal.

But he's way better than Kareem Jackson will ever be!

So would I. He can backup at multiple positions. I just don't want to see Brandon Harris and Shiloh Keo back on the field in key situations.

I can't wait to see more Brandon Harris.

But Jason Allen would make a great safety.... well, very good anyway.


And we must remember, if the Bengals do it, it was probably the wrong move. 1 step forward, 2 steps back.

We get a good compensatory pick for him and could get him back after one year if we really needed him. I say get him back if he is willing to get a good sized paycut.
