  Former CFL quarterback Allen to join Raiders' coaching staff as part of Walsh program Damon Allen will work with the NFL's Las Vegas Raiders' coaching staff as part of the Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship program. It's the same program former CFL quarterback Henry Burris participated in last year with the Chicago Bears. The Bears decided to keep Burris on their staff for the 2021 season.

He led teams to four Grey Cup titles and three times was named the championship game MVP. When Allen retired in 2008, he was the leading passer in pro football history (72,381 yards).

The Cleveland Cavaliers have extended Jarrett Allen a qualifying offer , making him a restricted free agent when free agency opens next month. The offer , were he to sign it, would pay him .7 million next season. Cleveland.com’s Chris Fedor first reported the news and it was confirmed by Fear the Sword independently with two league sources.

The team had until Aug. 1 to make the offer to Allen, a 23-year-old acquired last season in a trade from Brooklyn and viewed as one of Cleveland's core pieces.

The Cavs can now match any offer given by other teams to Allen, whose size and athleticism at both ends of the floor makes him enticing.

General manager Koby Altman has expressed his hope to keep Allen in Cleveland long-term.

Allen, who played college ball at Texas, came to the Cavs as part of the blockbuster trade in January that sent star James Harden to the Nets.

Allen's arrival pushed veteran Andre Drummond to the bench and eventually led to the team buying out the two-time All-Star center's contract.

Allen averaged 13.2 points and 9.9 rebounds in 51 games — 40 starts — for Cleveland.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Jarrett Allen is staying as the Cavaliers' main man in the middle. One of the NBA's most promising young centers, Allen agreed to a $100 million, five-year contract to remain with Cleveland on Monday as free agency opened, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. Allen, who was a restricted free agent, can sign the deal on Friday, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because NBA rules prohibit teams from announcing deals until the league's moratorium period ends. Allen joined the Cavs last season, coming over from Brooklyn in the blockbuster trade that sent James Harden from Houston to the Nets.
