Safety Nate Allen has signed with the Oakland Raiders since the Philadelphia Eagles let him walk in free agency.

Raiders O.co Coliseum – Raiders to stay at O.co Coliseum for at least one more year
Allen spent the first five seasons of his career with the Eagles and became somewhat of a disappointment for them after being drafted in the second round.
The Raiders were in need of a safety after releasing Tyvon Branch, who signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Allen will line up next to 39-year-old Charles Woodson, who re-signed with the Raiders on a one-year contract.
The financial details of Allen’s contract are currently unknown.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported on Allen’s deal with the Raiders on Twitter.
