He enjoys playing football and has agents and colleagues who can handle the business end of things. Allen just wants to be able to play football unencumbered, but will be a part of his contract negotiations.

“When it happens, it happens. There’s a lot of different ways you can go about it. Honestly, I love playing football. I want to listen and be engaged in the contract talks.

“Ultimately, that’s why you pay your agents, and that’s why you hire a guy like Brandon Beane and Joe Schoen, and the front office guys and what they do.”
