"I have a lot left in the tank, my body feels good," Allen said, per the Chicago Tribune. "I want to win a Super Bowl."
Allen likes the potential of the Bears' defense, saying he's excited to play alongside linebacker Lance Briggs and defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff.
"I'm excited to be here at a point where this team is really going to take some steps to improve defensively," Allen said. "And I've obviously played against this offense enough to know that it's very potent. And so for me, I'm excited to be here, excited to be a part of this, a part of what coach (Marc Trestman) is trying to put together."
Allen has 128.5 career sacks and should boost a pass rush that mustered a league-low 31 sacks last year.
“Certainly, those are big to consistently playing at a high level,” Trestman told the Chicago Sun-Times. “He has all the trademarks. And of course, his love of the game. When you watch him play, you’re saying to yourself, ‘This man loves playing football,’ and he’s been doing it for a very long time at a high level. Our personnel people and our coaches all feel that’s he’s got a lot left, and we believe we’re getting him at a great time.”
Allen turns 32 next week. He has 128.5 sacks in his 10-year career.
Allen has 128.5 sacks in his 10-year career including at least 11 in each of his last seven seasons. He's also missed just three games over his 10-year career.
It's unclear when Allen will choose a team.
