Allgeier’s slide ended up working out okay as he goes to an Atlanta Falcons franchise that will pose an immediate opportunity to play.
That’s all you can ask for.

I feel sorry for any defensive back who makes the mistake of thinking Tyler Allgeier is going to go out of bounds.

Tyler Allgeier isn’t a fast running back or a elite athlete, but he’s a big back that fits the zone blocking scheme. He reminds me a lot of Alfred Morris from Washington. Built like a bowling ball. #Falcons #DirtyBirds pic.twitter.com/FE5RlPCg5d

.@MoveTheSticks on Falcons RB Tyler Allgeier: “James Conner with some fumble issues.”

This is an exciting stat, yes, but what I like best about Tyler Allgeier is that 70.9 percent of his rushing yards came after initial contact. He’s not someone who shies away from contact. https://t.co/Z5dDm40luq
