Panthers trade for Bears defensive end Jared Allen
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Bears have traded Jared Allen to the Panthers in exchange for an undisclosed late-round draft pick, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Allen, who has recorded five tackles and a sack in three games for the Bears to date, will bolster Carolina's pass rush in the wake of news that Charles Johnson is expected to miss multiple weeks.

Bears LB Jared Allen notches interception in Week 2 loss
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bears linebacker Jared Allen notched one tackle and an interception in Sunday's 48-23 win over the Cardinals. Making just his second career start as a 3-4 outside linebacker, Allen adapted well to his new position for at least one play in Sunday's game, as he deflected a Carson Palmer pass up in the air and reeled it in for the turnover.

However, the Bears are counting on Allen to make more of an impact as a pass rusher than in coverage, and he's failed to do that thus far. Though he was credited with two quarterback hits, Allen remains without a sack on the season, along with the rest of the Bears roster. The defense can't succeed unless Allen and fellow high-priced outside linebackers Pernell McPhee and Lamarr Houston start generating pressure with more frequency.

Bears' Jared Allen on new OLB role: 'I'm having fun with it'
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Jared Allen is in a difficult position as a 33-year-old trying to learn a new position from scratch.

The Bears' 12-year veteran, who was a defensive end for his entire career, is taking the transition to outside linebacker in stride and is working to become a threat from a new spot on the field, per NFL.com.

"I didn't know anything about it (playing OLB)," Allen said. "I played in a Tampa 2 defense my entire career, so there is a part of me that absolutely loves putting my hand in the dirt and that individual matchup with the left tackle in run or pass, or with the tight end. But this as a football player is fun, it really is -- the different styles of matchups you get and some of the one-on-one rushes it creates are really fun. Ultimately, it's kind of the same stuff, but later in my career it's easier on my body because I'm not technically banging every single day."

The change of position could be a blessing in disguise for Allen, who recorded a career-low 5.5 sacks last season.

"My body feels fresher because I'm not banging every single day and putting my hands on a 300-plus pounder and banging heads and that kind of stuff.

"I'm having fun with it. I know it's just OTAs, but being out there and seeing the one-on-one matchups that I've been able to create and the rush angles I've been able to create, so it's kind of broadening my perspective on football. For me, it's been a blast and I'm just excited to keep going."

OLB spot can give Bears' Jared Allen a career rebirth
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Bears defensive end Jared Allen is learning a new position at age 33.

With the Bears switching to a 3-4 defense, Allen will spend much of his time at outside linebacker. 

"He did well in the minicamp we had here, and I think he was excited about it," defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said, per ESPN. "Like I told him, I think he can have a rebirth to his career here playing a little bit of a new position. But in the NFL today, you play more nickel than you actually play base. For some teams they play nickel 65 to 75 percent of the time. He’ll be playing his normal position then. So it’s not as drastic of a change as you might think."

Bears defensive end Jared Allen played through herniated disc in 2014
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Bears defensive end Jared Allen still thinks he can get the job done next season. Allen claims he was slowed last season while dealing with a nagging back issue, which was diagnosed as a herniated disc, reports the Chicago Tribune.

"I just don't know how to miss games," Allen says. "It killed me that I had to miss one."

Allen totaled 55 tackles with 5 1/2 sacks in 15 games last season.
