ESPN's Field Yates reports S Nate Allen's one-year deal with the Raiders is worth $3 million.
$1.85 million of that is guaranteed, and Allen can earn $2 million more through incentives. He was originally scheduled to earn $4.9 million guaranteed before being released this week. Knee issues limited Allen to five games last season, but he should be 100 percent for the offseason program. Feb 13 - 9:44 AM

Date:

Raiders re-signed S Nate Allen.

Allen's release ended up being a procedural move. His original $4.9 million salary was set to become guaranteed on Wednesday, an untenable sum for a methodically declining player who missed 11 games with a knee issue in 2015. The terms of the new agreement are unclear. Allen will be in the mix for a starting job, but it's far from a guarantee.
Feb 11 - 4:59 PM

Raiders released S Nate Allen.

Allen signed a "four-year, $23 million" contract last March, but ended up appearing in only five games for the Silver and Black, making three starts. He missed 11 contests with a knee issue. The move creates $5 million in cap space, and leaves behind no dead money. His $4.9 million salary was set to become guaranteed on Wednesday, forcing the move. Going on 29, Allen hasn't been effective in quite some time.
Feb 9 - 5:07 PM

Raiders placed FS Nate Allen (knee) on injured reserve.

Allen was limited to five games this year, but his injury isn't a long-term concern. Still, the early returns on his signing by GM Reggie McKenzie are poor. Just as he was in Philadelphia, Allen was an injury-ravaged liability his first season in Oakland. Allen is owed a $4.9 million base salary in 2016.

Raiders FS Nate Allen (knee) is out for Week 15 against the Packers.

Allen got in a limited practice Wednesday, but he sat out both Thursday's and Friday's sessions. Coach Jack Del Rio said Allen practiced Wednesday to see where he was, and the team decided after "not to push it." Allen avoided a setback, but his status for Week 16 remains murky. Taylor Mays got the start last week with Allen out.

Raiders FS Nate Allen exited Week 13 against the Chiefs with a knee injury.

Allen missed eight weeks with a knee injury earlier this season, but has been active since Week 10. Coach Jack Del Rio said they expect to know more Monday.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 08:38:00 PM

Raiders activated FS Nate Allen (knee) from injured reserve/designated for return.

Allen will start opposite Charles Woodson, with T.J. Carrie moving to corner. His return is an upgrade to a secondary that's allowed the fourth-most passing yards. The Raiders waived KR Marcus Thigpen in a corresponding move.
Sat, Nov 14, 2015 04:31:00 PM

Raiders FS Nate Allen (knee) is expected to be activated off I.R.-designated for return this week.

Week 10 against the Vikings is the first game Allen is eligible to play after he went down 11 snaps into the season opener. Allen and Charles Woodson will patrol the back end for the Raiders moving forward.
Mon, Nov 9, 2015 06:29:00 PM

Raiders S Nate Allen (knee, I.R./return) has resumed practicing.

It jump starts Allen's 21-day window to be activated. The Raiders have been getting surprisingly competent safety play this season, but Allen's return would be a boost for depth purposes. He's eligible for game action in Week 10.
Tue, Oct 27, 2015 05:32:00 PM

Raiders placed S Nate Allen (knee) on injured reserve/designated to return.

If there's good news, it's that Allen has obviously avoided a torn ACL if the Raiders are counting on him coming back this season. The exact nature of Allen's knee issue remains unclear. The Raiders' safety corps was already one of the league's thinnest before Allen's injury. He's first eligible to return in Week 10.
Tue, Sep 15, 2015 05:24:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Raiders fear S Nate Allen tore his ACL Week 1.

Allen is getting more tests today, but he is likely done for the season. With Charles Woodson (shoulder) also banged up, the Raiders are very thin at safety.
Mon, Sep 14, 2015 12:45:00 PM

Raiders FS Nate Allen is out for the rest of Week 1 with a knee injury.

It's not a good sign, especially for a player in Allen with a ruptured patellar tendon in his history. Allen's new knee injury might be severe.
Sun, Sep 13, 2015 05:18:00 PM

Raiders signed S Nate Allen to a four-year, $23 million contract with $11.8 million guaranteed.

Opposing wideouts and tight ends torched Allen last season, but that didn't stop Oakland from pursuing him. He'll play free safety alongside veteran SS Charles Woodson. Brandian Ross will likely move to a reserve role now that Allen has joined the secondary. The money Oakland paid Allen is probably even beyond his agent's wildest dreams. Folks in Philly are chuckling.

Free agent S Nate Allen will visit the Raiders.

The Raiders have put their abundance of cap space to aggressive use over the last two days, inking Roy Helu, Rodney Hudson, Curtis Lofton and Dan Williams. Allen got shredded on a weekly basis last season but still found a way to lead the Eagles with four interceptions. He'd start at free safety in Oakland.
Wed, Mar 11, 2015 11:47:00 AM

Free agent S Nate Allen has been fully cleared by Florida authorities following a Feb. 16 incident.

A 16-year-old girl called 911 to tell police "she saw a man in a large black two-door or four-door pickup, most likely a Ford, with his window down masturbating in the truck." She said the man was in his mid-40s to early 50s, with a gray/white goatee and red shirt/white visor. Later, police saw Allen driving a Ford truck and wearing a red shirt/white hat and stopped him. Of course, he's only 27 and further investigation showed Allen couldn't have been the man the girl saw. Allen will hit the open market in March.
