Beau Allen: Retires from NFL
Allen announced his retirement from the NFL on Friday via his personal Twitter account.

Perhaps his biggest accomplishment was a Super Bowl ring with Philly at the end of the 2017 campaign. Allen's last season on a roster was 2020, when he spent the entire campaign on injured reserve with the Patriots due to a leg issue.... See More ... See Less
