Scoopage: The Panthers have just agreed to a trade for Bears DE Jared Allen— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) September 28, 2015
The Bears moved to a 3-4 defense, something unfamiliar to Allen, who spent his entire career in a 4-3 defense. Lamarr Houston will likely take over most of Allen's snaps for the Bears.
The Panthers were in need of the wake of Charles Johnson's injury. Allen will likely assume starting duties across from Kony Ealy.

Given Allen's age, the Bears weren't going to get much in a trade.Back to the Carolina Panthers Newsfeed
