Larry Allen’s Insufferance is Definitely Flying Below the Radar

Filed under: 49ers, NFC WestOne day, longtime Cowboy and sorta current 49er guard Larry Allen will join Brett Favre in Canton. When that day comes, Allen can thank Favre for absorbing the offseason’s negative press. While Favre’s story is well-told (understatement!), Allen’s behavior this offseason has been pretty foul as well.

At the end of last season, Allen’s 14th, he became a free agent. But it was sort of assumed by everybody that the guard would retire, especially when he ignored all calls from the team. Figuring Allen would have informed them if he, you know, wanted to continue employment, they moved on and installed Adam Snyder in Allen’s old spot at left guard.

Get this: Allen now wants to play another season.

But he’s still not returning Mike Nolan’s phone calls, conversing instead with position coach George Warhop. Meanwhile, his agent is trying to work on a deal with the team as a starter, and asking for more money than the 49ers — who probably see him as a backup — want to pay.

So, essentially: Allen always knew he wanted to play, but wanted to skip offseason work. He’s combined Favre’s disregard for his team with Michael Strahan’s use of retirement as leverage to get privilege. I’m sorry, Hall of Famer or not, you shouldn’t be allowed to act like that and then expect a starter’s job to be handed to you. Take a spot on the bench or stay home and wait for the Hall to call.
