Jets' Antonio Allen says he is 'not at all' concerned about Calvin Pryor taking his playing time

Meet Antonio Allen: The Jets Breakout Player of 2014

Antonio Allen will shortly become a household name for members of Jets Nation. The free safety was drafted in the seventh round of the 2o12 NFL Draft, out of South Carolina.

2014 NFL Draft Prospect: Deone Bucannon

Free agency has all but ground to a halt. Though the New York Jets 2014 roster has started to take shape, the team has twelve draft picks and can add a much needed infusion of talent.

The New York Jets were competitive in Carolina today against a superior team. However, as they have done many times this season, they made one mistake too many to steal a victory. Today, it was a blocked punt that helped break the game open for the Panthers and a late game pick six to seal the deal.
