The Atlanta Falcons announced that S Ricardo Allen has signed his exclusive rights tender and they’ve placed OL Cam Keizer on waivers Wednesday.
The exclusive rights tender will run them $615,000 for the 2017 season.
Allen, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Falcons back in 2014. He was waived a few months after he was drafted and later signed to the Falcons’ practice squad at the start of the 2014 season.
Allen returned to the Falcons on a one-year exclusive rights contract last year and will be a restricted free agent in 2018.
In 2016, Allen appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons and recorded 90 tackles, two interceptions, and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 25 safety out of 90 qualifying players.
