Allen had 71 catches for 1,046 yards and eight touchdowns last year.
"When you’re a young player and had the success he did, now he’s got a bulls-eye on his back," McCoy said. "Everybody is going to know where he is every play. The success he had, that comes with the territory. And that’s a good problem to have. Then again, now you have to get in that much better shape. Now you’re going to see a double team here and there. You’re going to see the best corner on you. You have to work that much harder now. Now it’s all the little fine details that we’ve been talking about that you might have gotten away with in the past. Now when you get matched up with the best corners in the league you have to be at your best every week because they’re going to know where you are."
