Cowboys signed G Larry Allen to a one-day contract so he could retire with the team.
The 11-time Pro Bowler and 7-time All Pro will likely be a first-ballot Hall of Famer.

Free agent Larry Allen is reportedly close to signing with the Cowboys.

Dallas has some depth issues at guard with Kyle Kosier banged up, but this is likely going to be a one-day signing so Allen can retire a Cowboy.

Despite two recent injuries to their starting guards, the 49ers have not "renewed their interest" in free agent G Larry Allen.

It sounds like Allen is ready to play if he can start, but the 49ers will only call the future Hall of Famer if they suffer a long-term injury.

Coach Mike Nolan revealed Monday that free agent Larry Allen called OL coach George Warhop last week to express interest in rejoining the 49ers.

Allen, who turns 37 this season, declined last year and may not fit well in a potentially pass-happy offense under new coordinator Mike Martz. The 49ers might take Allen back as a reserve, but he probably wouldn't want that.

49ers coach Mike Nolan put the chances of free agent OG Larry Allen rejoining the team at less than 50 percent Monday.

Allen is 36 and is reportedly planning to retire, so we're not sure why this is still an issue. Nolan is asked about Allen at every press conference. Because he hasn't spoken with Allen (because Allen doesn't plan to play), there's never much Nolan can say.

Veteran G Larry Allen's status remains a mystery to the 49ers.

NFL Network's Adam Shefter reported back in January that Allen would retire, but Allen himself has not made his plans known. Said GM Scot McCloughan: "If Larry Allen wants to be a 49ers, he'll be a 49er. There's no bad blood."
