Allen told Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer how much admiration he has for Bears head coach John Fox and general manager Ryan Pace.

Via TwitLonger:

That’s really the big thing for me. I’m not a standup outside backer but I told Foxie and Ryan I would even put weight on if they wanted me to in order to play that 3-4 end. I didn’t want to leave Foxie and Ryan, love those guys. But in the end they knew I didn’t fit so this worked out best.

Allen should have an opportunity to contribute to the Carolina Panthers immediately with defensive end Charles Johnson being placed on injured reserve and likely being out for eight weeks.
