Hoping to play long beyond 2024

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-06-05

Allen said Monday that he's "going to play as long as I can" and is willing to sign an extension with Chicago, Patrick Finley of The Chicago-Sun Times reports.

The Bears reportedly haven't offered anything since trading for Allen in March, which isn't exactly a surprise given that they drafted Rome Odunze six weeks later and may want to sign DJ Moore to an extension this offseason. Regardless of what happens with the contracts, first overall pick Caleb Williams will have one of the best WR trios in the league, with Moore and Allen both coming off 2023 seasons with career highs for yards per game and fantasy points per game. Allen is likely looking at a big volume dip in his age-32 season after averaging a league-high 11.5 targets in his 13 games for the Chargers last year, but he doesn't seem to be thinking about retirement on the horizon, instead hoping for another productive season and a big fourth contract. He's expected to be the Bears' slot receiver in three-wide formations and their Z receiver in two-wide looks.

Part of loaded offense in Chicago

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-02

Allen, DJ Moore and Rome Odunze all worked out with new Bears QB Caleb Williams in April, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Williams and Odunze weren't on the team at the time, though in Williams' everyone knew he'd be going to Chicago with the No. 1 overall pick of the 2024 Draft. The Bears then took Odunze eight picks later, completing a fearsome WR trio with Allen and Moore. It's a situation that will make it nearly impossible for Allen to match his target volume from his years in San Diego and Los Angeles, even if Odunze needs some time to adjust to the pro game. Allen celebrated his 32nd birthday during the draft and is entering the final year of his contract, with GM Ryan Poles having said in March that he expected the veteran WR to sign an extension at some points. It's unclear if the Odunze selection changes the expectation for Alllen to sign a multi-year deal, as the Bears have enough cap flexibility to keep all three WRs for the next few seasons if that's what they choose to prioritize.

Could sign extension this offseason

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-25

GM Ryan Poles said Monday that he thinks Allen will sign an extension with the Bears "down the road" after the team handles other contracts, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Poles seems to be suggesting that the Bears first want to work out extensions for players that have been with the team longer, though they already took care of two big ones in DE Montez Sweat (November) and CB Jaylon Johnson (March). Allen's new partner at wide receiver might be next in line, as DJ Moore's contract has two more seasons and $32.1 million but nothing guaranteed. Allen has one year and $23.1 million remaining, with the large sum explaining why the Chargers traded him for a mere fourth-round pick on the heels of a 2023 campaign in which he had career highs of 95.6 receiving yards and 21.5 PPR points per game (both numbers ranking Top 4 among all WRs). Allen missed the final four games with a heel injury and will turn 32 in April, but there's been no report of offseason surgery or any complications, so he should be a huge asset in the short term for presumed No. 1 overall pick Caleb Williams.

Dealt to Bears

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-14

Allen was traded from the Chargers to the Bears in exchange for a fourth-round pick Thursday, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports.

Allen has been a key figure in the Chargers' offense for the last 11 seasons, but salary cap problems and a new coaching staff and front office have caused the team to move on. Despite entering his age-32 season, Allen has shown few signs of decline, as he racked up 150 targets across only 13 games in 2023. He turned that into 1,243 yards and seven touchdowns, while also tallying a career-best 19 receptions of at least 20 yards. Allen will face some questions on his new team, however, as DJ Moore is the established top pass-catcher in the offense, meaning Allen could lose out on some of his prolific target volume. While the Bears are expected to draft Caleb Williams with the top overall pick, it's also still unclear who will be under center in Week 1.

Fourth consecutive absence Week 18

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-05

Allen (heel) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Allen will miss a fourth consecutive game to end the season. It's an unfortunate finish to an otherwise excellent campaign from the veteran wide receiver, who finishes with 108 catches on 150 targets for 1,243 yards and seven touchdowns in just 13 games. Allen has one more year remaining on his contract, but there is a potential out in his deal this offseason, so it's possible that his tenure with the Chargers will come to an end after 11 seasons.

Still not practicing

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-04

Allen (heel) didn't practice Thursday.

Allen, who last suited up in Week 14, also didn't practice Wednesday and doesn't seem especially likely to play in his team's season finale Sunday against the Chiefs, with the Chargers eliminated from playoff contention. If Allen remains sidelined this weekend, Joshua Palmer could lead the Los Angeles WR corps versus Kansas City if he's able to progress fully through the NFL's concussion protocol ahead of Week 18 action.

Doesn't practice Wednesday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-03

Allen (heel) didn't practice Wednesday.

Allen has missed the last three games, and there doesn't appear to be any incentive for him to play in Sunday's Week 18 finale against the Chiefs with the Chargers' playoff chances already gone. While Allen was sidelined Wednesday, Joshua Palmer (concussion) was able to get in a limited session.

Won't play Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-29

Allen (heel) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

The same applies to Joshua Palmer (concussion), which sets the stage for Quentin Johnston, Alex Erickson, Jalen Guyton and Derius Davis to lead the Chargers' Week 17 WR corps. Allen will now target a potential return to action in the team's season finale against the Chiefs.

Sits out another practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-29

Allen (heel) didn't take part in Friday's practice, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Allen is tending to a heel injury for a third consecutive week, a span in which he hasn't been able to log any on-field work. Ultimately, the Chargers may make a decision on his availability for Sunday's game at Denver as soon as they post their final Week 17 injury report later Friday. If Allen logs a third straight absence this weekend and fellow wide receiver Josh Palmer (concussion) joins him on the sideline, L.A. may be down to Quentin Johnston, Alex Erickson, Jalen Guyton and Derius Davis as its top options at the position.
