By Michael C. Wright
The Chicago Bears announced Thursday that reserve running back Armando Allen signed his exclusive rights tender with the team.
A two-year veteran, Allen (5-8, 190 pounds) played in 15 games last season, and ran the ball 27 times for 124 yards and a touchdown, in addition to making two catches for 16 yards. Allen also tied for fourth on the team with seven special-teams tackles.
In 17 career games with the Bears, Allen has rushed for 172 yards on 42 attempts with one touchdown.
Allen sits at No. 3 on the depth chart at running back behind Matt Forte and Michael Bush.
