Steelers, Allen Ink New Contract

The Pittsburgh Steelers and cornerback Cortez Allen agreed to a five-year, $26 Million contract extension, per Ian Rapoport. The contract is through the 2018 season.

Allen is entering his fourth year in the NFL. In 2013, Allen started fourteen regular season games. He registered 44 tackles, two interceptions, and a touchdown.

Allen is a very talented young cornerback, and with the evolution of football geared toward the passing game, the Steelers wisely extended his deal.
