Atlanta after an old Chiefs guard? Why does this sound so frighteningly familiar?

The Atlanta Falcons are linked to basically every former Kansas City Chiefs and Cleveland Browns player. Who is it now? Guard Jeff Allen, according to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports.

You might wonder if Atlanta signed a Chiefs guard a few years ago, and the answer is no. Jon Asamoah never happened.

Atlanta was linked to J.R. Sweezy earlier today. As we mentioned then, Atlanta is looking to improve the interior of their offensive line after it failed down the stretch. The team needs to replace Chris Chester, and may move on from Andy Levitre. Mike Person held his own blocking, and could fit into a spot at guard as well.

Allen's career has been spotty, but he had his best season last year as a mauling run blocker at left guard, Levitre's current spot. Follow along today to see if more news breaks about Allen.
