There have been many great defensive stars for the Philadelphia Eagles through the years. Perhaps one of their quickest was Eric Allen
, who was a constant threat to intercept any football thrown in his vicinity.
Eric Allen was an impact player almost immediately in the NFL. In his first eight years as a professional, Allen was named to the Pro Bowl six times and despite being a Cornerback, became a Sports Centre staple. In 1993, Eric Allen had six picks, four of which he returned for touchdowns.
As one of the most exciting players and best athletes in the league, it is very possible that history will shine positively on him. He has only been Hall of Fame eligible for a few years so he still has plenty of time to gain momentum among voters.
