Allen was waived by the Raiders on Wednesday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
Allen signed with the Raiders in late September and exclusively played special teams in his two game appearances. The rookie seventh-round pick was drafted by the Rams but will now look to find a new team.
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.
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.
