The 26-year-old Allen has started 54 of a possible 64 regular-season games after being taken in the second round of the 2010 draft.
Allen has intercepted six passes (just one over the past two seasons) and forced one fumble in his career. He tore the patellar tendon in his knee late in 2011 but has been durable since returning at the start of the 2012 season.
He played for four defensive coordinators in his four seasons with Philadelphia.
