Incoming head coach Sean Payton hasn’t spent time seeking fresh players for the Broncos. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Denver Broncos have agreed to terms on a three-year, $45.75 million contract with a guaranteed sum of $32.5 million.
Allen, 25 years old, is Denver’s most recent early free-agent investment. Reportedly, offensive lineman Mike McGlinchey will sign a five-year, $87.5-million contract, while guard Ben Powers will sign a four-year agreement to join the squad.
Denver also took care of linebacker Alex Singleton, who the Broncos hope to re-sign to a three-year, $18-million pact.
His 20 quarterback hits and 5.5 sacks in 13 games in 2022 for the Cardinals was Allen’s greatest single season of his professional career. Allen has recorded 11.5 sacks, 21 tackles for loss, and 43 quarterback hits since joining the NFL as a third-round choice in the 2019 NFL Draft out of Boston College.
