Texans RG Jeff Allen lost 21 pounds this offseason.

Signed to a four-year, $28-million contract in 2016, Allen's first season in Houston was one to forget.

Now healthy and in much better shape, Allen should return to form.

Texans signed G/T Jeff Allen, formerly of the Chiefs, to a four-year, $28 million contract.

Allen can play tackle, but he will likely play guard in Houston after Brandon Brooks bolted in free agency. With Brock Osweiler and Lamar Miller also coming to town, the Texans are completely remaking their offense. Allen should play a pivotal role in that transformation.

FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reports the Bears and Falcons are "heavily pursuing" free agent G/T Jeff Allen.

Allen is the poor man's version of Kelechi Osemele as someone capable of playing both guard and tackle. Unlike Osemele, however, Allen probably isn't an option at left tackle, and that will keep his price within reason.

Eagles VP of football operations Howie Roseman said fixing the offensive line is "a priority, period."

"It's a priority today. It's a priority tomorrow. It's a priority next week. It's a priority in April. It's going to be a priority," Roseman said. "Every day we're looking for offensive linemen." One offensive lineman the Eagles could be looking at is impending free agent LG Jeff Allen, who played for new coach Doug Pederson in Kansas City. Philadelphia needs to replace both guard spots this offseason.

The Chiefs believe RT Jeff Allen only has an MCL sprain.

An MCL sprain is a multiple-week injury, but it's better than a ligament tear, which might have cost Allen a big chunk of the season. Still, we likely won't see him for the rest of the preseason. Allen has worked at both right guard and right tackle in camp, but seemed to be settling in at tackle.
