Oakland Raiders re-sign safety Nate Allen, 2 days after they released him


ALAMEDA, California — The Oakland Raiders re-signed safety Nate Allen on Thursday, two days after they released him.

Terms of the new deal weren't disclosed. Allen's initial $4.9 million salary for next season would have been guaranteed if he was on the roster Wednesday.

Allen was limited to five games last season because of knee injuries. He had 14 tackles, an interception and two passes defensed.

The former South Florida player signed with Oakland as an unrestricted free agent in March 2015 following five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.
