Falcons ink Ricardo Allen to new deal

The Falcons are handing out money like candy this summer. After Atlanta re-signed Jake Mathews to a five-year extension, general manager Thomas Dimitirioff hinted that Allen would be next.

On Monday afternoon, that came to fruition.

Allen’s relentlessness earned him this contract. He worked his way from the practice squad to a starter in 2015 and has remained a key cog in the Falcons defense ever since. His football-IQ is second to none and one of the main reasons Atlanta rarely gives up big plays on defense.
