Steelers Re-sign S Will Allen
According to Adam Caplan of ESPN, the Pittsburgh Steelers have signed another one of their soon-to-be unrestricted free agents as safety Will Allen has come to terms.
Details of the deal are not yet known, but it most likely was a one-year contract for the veteran minimum and likely comes with a lower cap charge if the signing bonus, if any, was well under $75,000.
The Steelers let Allen walk last offseason as an unrestricted free agent as he signed a one-year qualifying contract with the Dallas Cowboys. Allen started the first several games with the Cowboys, but was quickly relegated to a backup role and ultimately released.
The Steelers brought Allen back following his release from the Cowboys and he played extensively in the quarters package after then-rookie safety Shamarko Thomas went down with an ankle injury.
