Scoopage: The Panthers have just agreed to a trade for Bears DE Jared Allen
— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) September 28, 2015
The trade signals the Bears acknowledging they are rebuilding and sends Allen to a contender.
It’s good for the Panthers as they get a veteran defensive end who will add to their pass rush for a minimal cap hit this season. They can always get out of the contract after this season with no dead money.
The Panthers are one of six 3-0 teams remaining (Green Bay could join them with a win over Kansas City). I’ll have thoughts on the 3-0 teams later this week (of course, the Broncos are one of them).
