Defensive end Zach Allen has agreed to a three-year, $45.75 million contract with the Denver Broncos, according to multiple reports.
The Broncos have pursued Allen since the start of the legal free agency handling window on Monday, according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports. Allen is reunited with Vance Joseph, his defensive coordinator with the Arizona Cardinals who now has the same role in Denver.
Allen has played his entire NFL career with the Cardinals. He has totaled 138 tackles, 11.5 sacks, 3 fumble recoveries and 15 pass deflections. This season, Allen had 5.5 sacks and 35 quarterback pressures in 13 games. He was No. 36 on FOX Sports’ list of the NFL’s top free agents.
Arizona selected Allen out of Boston College in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The Cardinals will now have to replace their starting two defensive backs from last season.
