The Oakland Raiders have signed former Philadelphia Eagles safety Nate Allen, the team announced. Allen had 62 tackles and four interceptions for the Eagles last season.
Philadelphia selected Allen out of South Florida in the second round of the 2010 draft, immediately slotting him into a starting role. In five seasons, he made 324 combined tackles and 10 interceptions.
Last season, Allen recorded 62 tackles, one forced fumble, one sack and a career-high four interceptions in 15 games. The Philadelphia secondary finished second-worst in passing yards allowed per game.
