Mood! LFG!” Allen wrote on Instagram. “Want to thank the organization. Tom Telesco especially for giving me a opportunity! Super juiced about this. CHARGER FANS WE LOCKED IN FOR ANOTHER ROUND, FOREVER A CHARGER!”
Allen has been with the Chargers for his entire career. He is a three-time Pro Bowler. Last year he had 104 receptions for 1,199 yards and six touchdowns. Over the last three seasons, he has averaged 101 catches, 1,263 yards, and six touchdowns per season. For his career, he has 524 receptions for 6,405 yards and 34 touchdowns.
Allen deserves this extension because he is the Chargers’ best weapon on offense.
