Chargers No. 1 WR Keenan Allen running routes at full speed after injury


  • Chargers top WR Keenan Allen reportedly ran routes at full speed during team OTAs.
  • Allen led the team in targets and receptions in the three seasons prior to his knee injury early in 2016.
  • In the past two years, he also led the team in receiver rating (the passer rating of the QB when targeting a single receiver) at over 100 each year.
  • Allen doesn’t have a reception longer than 49 yards over his career, but he has broken 35 tackles after the catch and more than a third of his career receiving yardage has come after the catch.2017-05-20_09-42-15

    As a diehard Raven fan, im hoping that WR Keenan Allen is healthy and ready to go. If Allen is healthy, with the emergence of Tyrell Williams and LA drafting WR Mike Williams. Also having signed veteran slot WR Travis Benjamin last off-season to a big free agent contract, the Chargers would have a logjam at WR. Leaving Dontrelle Inman has the 5th WR and the odd man out, with my Ravens in desperate need of a big, physical, possession WR like Inman. Maybe the Chargers would look to trade Inman, which would be a perfect fit for our roster and offense.
