Antonio Allen Moved to the Active Roster


The Jets announced one move today, bringing Antonio Allen off of the practice squad to fill their open roster spot. Allen had been active for 3 games, recording a sack, making more of his impact on special teams. He is a pair of young legs that will add some depth to the secondary, and make an impact on special teams as well.

It’s a good sign to see Allen activated, as it is a bit of a new leaf for the Jets. For the longest time, we all have been complaining that they are too loyal to their older players, case and point being Bart Scott and Calvin Pace. Bringing Allen back to the active roster shows a change in philosophy, bringing in some fresh legs to add more life to the defense.

What type of impact should we expect Sunday? Mostly on special teams, maybe some situational defensive back play as well. He made an impact the short time he was here before, it wouldn’t surprise anyone to see him make plays now.
