It Is Time For Philadelphia Eagles To Move On From Nate Allen?
The Philadelphia Eagles are in a period of transition at the safety position. Nate Allen is a pending free agent, veteran Patrick Chung severely underperformed and is likely to be cut, and Earl Wolff is only entering his second season.
It is a distinct possibility that the Eagles will be looking for two starting-caliber players at the safety spot, and one guy it is time to move on from is Allen. He has been given every opportunity to thrive in this defense, partially because he was a high 2nd round pick that Eagles general manager Howie Roseman invested in.
He has failed to impress, as Allen simply lacks instincts for the game. While he may not make any glaring errors throughout the course of a game, he also fails to stand out in any way.
The Eagles desperately need playmakers in the back end, and Allen has not stood out in that area. This was supposed to be a breakout year of sorts for Allen, who was finally healthy off of a devastating patella tendon injury and primed to thrive in a new defense.
However, it simply never panned out. Safety is a position the Eagles have not figured out since Brian Dawkins retired, and it is time to change that. Roseman needs to look under every rock and be aggressive in both the draft, and free agency to get the position right.
We have seen in the Seattle Seahawks how far a dominant safety tandem and secondary unit can get you. It is time for the Eagles to wake up and finally fix the safety position once and for all.
