EAGLES’ 6-3, 327-POUND DT BEAU ALLEN HAVING FUN AT FULLBACK!

By Michael Donovan

The Eagles used 6-3, 327-pound defensive tackle Beau Allen as a goal-line fullback on Sunday. He took four offensive snaps, and it’s a role Allen could to play after the Eagles cut No. 4 tight end Chris Pantale before the season.

“He had fun out there,” coach Doug Pederson said. “He came off after we scored and he said that he didn’t realize that the defense was going to cut [block] him. I said, ‘Dude, you are a big guy running through there against a little DB, where do you expect him to go?’ . . . Obviously, you saw his athleticism and how well he comes off the ball. He’s obviously a former fullback, so we gave him an opportunity.”
