No matter what your thoughts are on his performance in recent years, you've gotta appreciate the effort that man put forth in his time with this team.

After getting released in his rookie year, he did everything he could to improve & was able to make the practice squad. His dedication to getting better & his willingness to do whatever it took to be a part of the team allowed him to fill a void when he made the move to FS.

From there, he wasn't satisfied with just being a solid contributor, so he worked to become a leader in the secondary. What he lacked in athleticism he made up for to some degree with good play recognition & excellent communication skills. The lack of communication in the secondary was very noticeable in his absence as he worked hard to come back from an Achilles tear in 2018.

With new coaches & schemes, and the need to get younger, cheaper players on the roster, it's definitely time for the Falcons to move on.

But as a Falcon, Ricardo Allen remained a class act & in my opinion, deserves respect from every fan out there.

Thanks for everything you gave, Rico & best of luck moving ahead!

I never truly hated the guy like others did. Preciate the good times. 

He overachieved like ****. He was a solid, decent safety. Never going to the HOF, but good enough to not lose a game. Thanks for all the hard work, dedication that it took to get where you were Rico!

Yeah Im not a defensive guy so I never really understood why he was so hated. I thought he was pretty solid for the most part. He will bounce back somewhere

I put Rico in the same camp as Worrilow. 

They are guys that gave you EVERYTHING they have, but at the end of the day, it wasn’t enough to starters.

I appreciated their efforts most definitely! I can’t say either one of them took anything for granted or took any plays off. 

That’s insult to Rico. Worrilow was trash. Rico was good starter in 2016 and 2017. People forget Rico in playoffs of 2016 and 2017. He made crucial plays.

So he wasn’t a guy that didn’t give you everything he had and took plays off??? 

Rico was consistent not elite as needed for high single safety. He was upgradable in 2018, replaceable  ever since. Rico didn’t take plays off, Kazee did. Now, if only Rico had range to go with his consistency and Brains.

We are saying the same thing. Outside of him being upgradable period, he was a solid starter but you needed more athletically at the end of the day. 

Sure, he was better than Wor overall but they both would have been good depth guys, not multi year starters.

Not even close. Rico was in top half of FS in 2016 and 2017. Worrilow should have never started in the NFL. I get the hate for Rico but comparison to worrilow is just funny.

As long as you didn’t throw at him with a bigger Receiver sure in 2015-2017, he was fine. He always knew where to be but had problems his entire time at making some plays.

To a degree he always had physical liabilities, just like the guy you don’t want me to mention. 

Which is why I was ok with him as a stop gap type until you brought in a potential Pro Bow upgrade guy.

Eeehhh i dont know if i would put them in the same category. Rico at least made plays and helped the guys get in place. Warrilow was lucky to be on the field.
