Dang, Wikipedia got the update lickety-split.

Quote
He was selected in the fourth round of the 2004 NFL draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Will Allen signed a 3-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers on 3/8/2010.
...
Allen is perhaps best remembered among college football fans for two plays made during the 2002 national championship season. The first occurred during the 2002 Ohio State-Michigan game, intercepting a pass from Michigan quarterback John Navarre during the closing seconds to preserve the 14-9 victory and an undefeated regular season. The second play was only one game later in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl for the national championship. In the second half, Allen tackled Miami running back Willis McGahee and delivered a helmet blow to his left knee.

They don't exactly televise a whole lot of Tampa games here in Baltimore, so I have no clue if he's any good. I don't even remember how good he was in college any more. Anyone got an opinion? Could he be another Ryan Clark? Or more of a Tyrone Carter?

I haven't seen him at all and had confused him with CB in Mammy.  But at least we know he understands how to treat Ratbirds.

Allen hasn't had an INT since 2005...

Mmm. Glad if he takes Tyrone Carter's place, not so much if he takes Clark's position.

Depth maybe, but I don't want this guy starting.
