Veteran safety Nate Allen did more than what was asked of him in 2016, starting in place of injured rookie Karl Joseph for the final four games of the year. He recorded 26 tackles and 1 interception as a starter.
Allen saw the majority of his playing time in the second half of the season, logging 33 tackles and 2 interceptions. Allen’s coverage needs work, but to his credit, he did show some improvement in this regard. He was also a factor in run support.
If the Raiders can keep Allen for around the $3 million they initially signed him for, then he shall stay in Silver and Black.
