Look, I understand the reasons for the move and am happy with the return. But don't try to trump up that trade by arguing that Allen wouldn't be a monster here. He'd be to this defense what Richard Seymour was for the Pats.
Allen's 270 on a good day. He'd be an OLB here. He's not a 320-pounder like Seymour.
