Re: Larry Allen: Should we sign him

Larry Allen has a chronic bad knee. It used to buckle on him on a regular basis during games in the last two years. He is damaged goods and his playing days are numbered. He will retire soon.

Re: Larry Allen: Should we sign him

We dont NEED a starter, so I'd rather us sign a young linemen with some skills and potential...instead of a lazy other than game day guy who has very little time left.

The upside of a young player could be huge, while Allen would be a here/now with no future plans....in my opinion.

Except he can play guard or tackle.

I bet if Larry Allen wanted to, he could play center.

I just thought this line was funny, and how no one commented that our backup guard last year was what, 10 years older than Allen is and stepped in and played well.

And I think Allen at age whatever he is, is still a better guard that Dockery is. Dockery is in the same mold as Allen, both are huge guys. He could probably learn somethings from him, Cowboy or not. But I would still want Dockery to start and get better. Allen will stay a Cowboy before he becomes a cheap, vet coach for us

Allen has always been an overpowering guy who relied on his god given strength and agility while Ray Brown is a consumate technician. I think age, wear and tear will effect Allen more. The other thing is I don't know much about Allen if he's an ass or not. I don't want him f!@#'n up the O-line dynamic. Lastly Larry Allen isn't gonna play for free meals and a place to sleep like Ray Brown.

you know that ray brown only started 16 games in his first 7 years, right? that's a lot less where and tear. ray brown never had a history of injury problems, and last year in the seattle game, he DID have troubles which forced raymer into the RG spot for what seemed like forever
