Free agent offensive lineman Larry Allen has not officially called it quits. There was still a chance that the future hall of famer would return for his 15th NFL season. A recent report from ESPN is speculating that Allen is seriously considering return for one more season.
Head coach Mike Nolan has not spoke with Allen regarding this season, but did say that offensive line coach George Warhop had a recent conversation with him.
“He called a week or two ago to express his interest, but I haven’t heard from him since,” Nolan said Monday. “I just think because he’s a free agent, he just left it up to his agent this time.”
Now the question is do the 49ers bring him back for one more season, after retooling their line with the idea of Allen retiring? Can they really say no to a future Hall of Famer?
