    Steelers' Will Allen: Six tackles in loss

    Allen recorded six tackles (all solo) in Pittsburgh's loss to Denver on Sunday. Allen finished the season with 80 tackles (62 solo), including four sacks. He also had an interception and two forced fumbles. Allen, who is an unrestricted free agent, saw his playing time more than double from last season, and it was reflected in his production. He set single season career highs in tackles and passes defended (eight), and the four sacks, his first in 12 years in the league, were the second most by a defensive back (Ron Parker, KC, five) in 2016. Whether or not he returns to Pittsburgh, Allen is worthy of IDP consideration.
