DT Beau Allen
Interior linemen rarely fill up the stat sheet, but Beau Allen hasn’t graded well in Pro Football Focus‘ system. His 27.0 tackling grade is the third-worst mark out of every interior defensive lineman.
Adding Allen to the mix this season was in part a contingency plan for Vea. If the rookie took a while to develop, Allen could step in and provide solid production while Vea got his feet under him.
Vea has taken significant strides in the second half of the season, and Allen has taken a backseat because of it.
Allen is a nice player, but continuing to pay him for what could be only a handful of snaps a game may not make much sense next season.
