Agrees to massive five-year deal

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-04-10

Allen and the Jaguars agreed to terms Wednesday on a five-year, $150 million contract, Nick Shook of reports.

Jacksonville is about a month removed from placing the franchise tag on Allen, who tallied a franchise-record 17.5 sacks last season, but the team's stated goal has always been to negotiate a long-term contract with the two-time Pro Bowler. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Allen's new deal includes $88 million guaranteed, while the franchise tag would've had him play out the 2024 season on a salary of just over $24 million. Allen looked convincing as one of the league's elite pass-rushers in 2024, in which he also logged 66 tackles (43 solo), one interception and two forced fumbles across 17 regular-season appearances. He'll come off the board as one of the top players at his position in IDP formats in 2024 drafts.

Officially gets franchise tag

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-05

The Jaguars have officially placed the franchise tag on Allen ahead of Tuesday's 4:00 p.m. ET deadline.

Allen receiving the franchise tag has been long expected, and is now official. The 2019 first-round pick is coming off a true breakout campaign, with a career-high 17.5 sacks in 2023, to go with 66 tackles (43 solo), one interception and two forced fumbles. He and Jacksonville still have until mid-July to negotiate a long-term deal, but if Allen believes he can replicate similar production in the 2024 season, he may be comfortable betting on himself with the hopes of hitting the open market next offseason as a true star at one of the NFL's most sought-after positions.

To be tagged

The Jaguars are expected to place the franchise tag on Allen by Tuesday's 4:00 p.m. ET deadline, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Allen will play out the 2024 season on a one-year, guaranteed $24 million contract if the Jaguars indeed place the franchise tag on him, and a long-term deal isn't agreed to by mid-July. The 2019 first-round pick broke out in a big way with 66 tackles (43 solo), 17.5 sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles in 17 regular-season games last season, and he would immediately become one of the top available free agents on the market were Jacksonville allow him to walk.

Racks up 17.5 sacks

Allen finished the season with 66 tackles (43 solo), 17.5 sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles in 17 games.

The 2019 first-round pick entered 2023 with 17 combined sacks across the previous four years, but he eclipsed that total last season as he tied for second in the NFL with 17.5. It was a contract year for Allen, and the 26-year-old is poised for a significant payday this offseason, though he may have to settle for the franchise tag if he and the Jaguars are unable to agree on a long-term deal.

Third in NFL in sacks

Allen recorded six tackles (five solo) including three sacks in Sunday's 26-20 win versus the Panthers.

Allen's masterpiece in Week 17 brought his season sack total up to 16.5, better than everyone in the league except for T.J. Watt and Trey Hendrickson, both of whom have 17.0 going into the last week of the regular season. Allen is making a strong case for a huge second contract and will have at least one more chance to add to that case in Week 18 at Tennessee.

Interception in loss

Allen recorded seven tackles (three solo), including 1.5 sacks, while also intercepting a pass and deflecting another in Monday's 34-31 overtime loss to Cincinnati.

Allen was once again able to get to the quarterback in Week 13, producing at least a half-sack for the third contest in a row. The highlight of the game for him came in the third quarter though, when he was able to intercept a pass thrown by Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd. The interception was only Allen's second of his career through five seasons with Jacksonville.

Has another multi-sack outing

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-27

Allen recorded five tackles (four solo) including 2.5 sacks in Sunday's 24-21 win at Houston.

Allen tallied two-plus sacks for the fourth time this season and secured the second double-digit sack season of his career in Week 12. He's already had a career year, and there are still six games left to play, so he projects as a great IDP play wherever he's defensive-lineman eligible.

Two sacks in Week 8 win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-31

Allen registered five tackles (three solo) including two sacks in Sunday's 20-10 win over the Steelers.

Both of Allen's sacks came in the second half on Mitch Trubisky, who subbed in for Kenny Pickett (ribs). Allen has played in at least 80 percent of defensive snaps in three straight games and his nine sacks on the year ranks second in the NFL behind Danielle Hunter (10). Allen is just 1.5 sacks from surpassing his career-high in his rookie year and will get a chance to hit that mark after the bye in Week 10 against the 49ers.

Good to go

Allen (shoulder) is active Sunday against the Texans.

Allen was forced out of the team's Week 2 loss to Kansas City and was questionable throughout the week for Sunday's contest against Houston. However, after logging a limited practice Friday, the team's 2019 first-round selection will play, which is good news for the Jacksonville defense.
