In his note Allen says “Even though our record didn’t always show it, in my soul I know that we are winners.”

Allen further stats that “one day I want to be an offensive coordinator, so when I retire from playing in like 10 years @atlantafalcons Imma need my job back!”

Allen played in 12 games with the Falcons in 2020 and posted 25 tackles and two interceptions. He signed a three year contract in 2018 with $10.9 million guaranteed according to Spotrac. His release adds another $2.125 million in dead cap space from his $5.5 million signing bonus in 2018, but should take about $4 million off the salary cap for the 2021 season.
