The Baltimore Ravens re-signed exclusive rights free-agent RB Anthony Allen Wednesday, April 3.
Huddle Up: Allen will be back for this third season in Baltimore, but he doesn't expect to see many touches playing behind Ray Rice and the emerging Bernard Pierce.

Baltimore Ravens RB Anthony Allen struggled with his pass blocking for the second straight week Friday, Aug. 17, and allowed another sack this preseason.
Huddle Up: Pass blocking is a prevalent issue with young backs, and that's all the Ravens have in back of starter/fantasy stud Ray Rice. Allen is entering his second year after being drafted in the seventh round out of Georgia Tech and is currently listed as the Ravens' second-string RB. Behind Allen are second-year undrafted free agent Damien Berry, 2012 third-round pick Bernard Pierce and rookie free agent Bobby Rainey. Bottom line: There's no clear-cut handcuff to Rice, and don't be surprised if the Ravens add a more experienced RB before the regular season begins.
