Bears | Jared Allen enjoying move to OLB

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 19:43:32 -0700

Chicago Bears LB Jared Allen was reluctant to move from defensive end to outside linebacker in Chicago's new 3-4 alignment. He claimed ignorance fueled his skepticism after making comments in 2011 about not wanting to move to linebacker while with the Minnesota Vikings. However, Allen believes the move will extend his career by preventing him from taking as many hits. He also likes that it challenges him to study more and not become complacent because of excessive repetition.
