Will Allen learned a lot under the Steelers defensive backs. One thing stuck in his mind that he wants to bring to over to Dallas. Allen wants to make the Cowboys secondary more physical.
“The first thing Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu and Ike Taylor and those guys said to me when I walked into the defensive back room, was if you don’t stick your face in the thing, you can’t be on this defense.”
Allen wants that to be the mentality of the Cowboys defense.
“Those Pittsburgh guys are mean on the field to everybody. It’s not just taboo. It’s not something you just say. You really believe it. You really mean it. It’s your mindset because everybody’s accountable to each other. And hopefully we can build that same accountability here on the back end, everybody from Brandon Carr to Mo Claiborne.”
