Dude should have given up football! Torn ACL! Bottom line he wasn't even that good.
He was fine after the first one. Hopefully he's okay and obviously this is a big cause of concern but don't call him dead in the water yet.

Not any more, two torn ACL's. Brutal.
I don't how badly Oregon receiver Devon Allen is hurt. I hope it's not serious, because Allen is a world-class 110-meter hurdler.
He could be great on the track for a long time. He could win the Olympic gold medal in 2020.
So it's time to end this flirtation with disaster as a football player. Allen already has been hurt once, tearing his right ACL returning a kickoff in the 2015 Rose Bowl. That cost him the 2015 track season.
Hopefully the injury he suffered on Saturday against Nebraska won't end his track career.
Assuming it doesn't, it's time for Allen to cut his losses, say goodbye to football and start preparing for the track season.
I agree. Stefan Diggs broke his leg a couple of times in college and has had a tremendous impact in his first two seasons. I would imagine that Allen will continue to pursue this football thing.

He was good enough to get an NFL contract, even if it would be largely on the basis of his speed and athleticism.

He's from Oregon

"Oregon wide receiver and 2016 100-meter hurdle Olympian Devon Allen suffered his second season-ending ACL tear in three seasons."
How was he able to compete in a woman's event at the Olympics?
So IF he gets drafted that's 140K a year for 3 years? And highly doubt he gets another contract

I agree that he should focus on track, but can't fault him for trying.
The minimum salary for NFL is $435,000
Only 20% of top 10 USA track athletes make over $50k.
The fact that he also plays football was mentioned every time I saw him run during both the trails and the olympics. I think football helps his popularity and potential sponsorships in track.
