Raiders' Dakota Allen: Headed to Oakland
Allen is signing with the Raiders, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.
The Raiders are signing the 23-year-old linebacker off the Rams practice squad due to the fact that Vontaze Burfict (elbow), Nick Morrow (undisclosed) and Marquel Lee (ankle) are all currently dealing with injuries. Allen, a standout from Texas Tech, was selected in the seventh round of April's draft but failed to crack a spot on the Rams 53-man roster.

Rams' Dakota Allen: Headed to LA
The Rams selected Allen in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 251st overall.
Allen is an undersized linebacker at 6-foot-1, 232 pounds, but he served as a starter in each of his three years at Texas Tech and offers standout quickness if nothing else (10.92 agility score). He projects as a special teams player for now.
