New England Patriots re-sign record-breaking Punter Ryan Allen to three-year deal

New England Patriots re-sign record-breaking Punter Ryan Allen to three-year deal

While most eyes are on the Tom Brady suspension ruling, the New England Patriots quietly signed Punter Ryan Allen to a three-year deal, as told to ESPN’s Adam Scheffer’s through Allen’s agent.
The deal will take Allen through the 2018 season.

The 25-year-old Punter has averaged an impressive 46.1 yards per punt and put 25 of his last 66 punts inside the 20-yard line this season.

Allen is well known for his 64-yard punt in the Super Bowl, the farthest ever in the Championship.

Allen also holds another record. He was the first person to ever win the Ray Guy award (College Football’s yearly award for best Punter) two years in a row (2011 and 2012).

The Left, an undrafted Free Agent out of Louisiana Tech, will have the option to renegotiate his deal after two seasons, according to the Boston Globe.

The Patriots must be invested in their Special Teams as this deal comes just ten days after they made Kicker Stephen Gostkowski the highest-paid Kicker in the NFL. He signed a four-year $17.2 million deal with a $6 million bonus.
