Former Oregon Duck wide receiver, Devon Allen, had a tremendous 55 yard touchdown catch for the Eagles on Sunday. Allen, who is also a three time USATF National Champion in the 110m hurdles, sprinted behind the defense and made a great diving catch for the long touchdown to help give the Eagles a 21-20 win over the Cleveland Browns in Cleveland.
That catch was the only catch that Allen had on the day. But the 27 year old who decided to pursue his football career in the offseason, signed a 3 year contract this offseason. While Allen is a longshot to make the Eagles’ 53-man roster, he isn’t going down without a fight. Allen still has a great opportunity at the practice squad, which expanded to 16 players this year.
