Allen was not expendable and Thomas may become a better player but isn’t right now. Keim didn’t extend Allen when he should have in my opinion. I believe Allen was leaving before the new regime was put in place.
I liked Zach Allen but paying him top 11 DE money (15m/year) for a career best 5.5 sacks on a team that is in full rebuild mode doesn't make sense.
You will get his production from Cam Thomas plus some and a higher ceiling IMO.
