The Eagles and safety Nate Allen agreed on a one-year contract, the team announced Monday.
Allen became an unrestricted free agent last Tuesday, but after almost of week of testing the market, opted to return to Philly. He becomes the third safety the Eagles have signed in the last week after they inked Malcolm Jenkins to a three-year contract and Chris Maragos to a two-year deal.
The Eagles now have five safeties on their roster -- Earl Wolff, Keelan Johnson, Jenkins, Maragos and Allen. They released Patrick Chung last week and Kurt Coleman and Colt Anderson also became free agents and have yet to sign with another team.
Allen had arguably his best season in 2013. He started off slow, but became more reliable as the season progressed. The 26-year old cut down on the errors, but his game was still lacking in the big-play department. The Eagles credited Allen with 94 tackles. He notched one interception and one sack.
