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!

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!

Class act and real feel good story, but a bad excuse for a FS. How did he survive as our single high safety for six seasons?

Buddy averaged 71 tackles, 0.0 FFs, 0.2 FRs, 0.2 sacks, 0.2 TFLs, 2 INTs and 5 PDs per season. Low to no impact.
