On May 5th, 2013 ESPNBoston.Com's Field Yates blogged that Ryan Allen was signed to a three-year deal by the Patriots on May 3, 2013 and that Ryan received a $1,500 signing bonus and had $2,500 of his 2013 salary guaranteed.

August 21, 2016 update - On July 28, 2015 ESPN's Field Yates took a "closer look at the three-year extension recently signed by New England Patriots punter Ryan Allen, which includes $6.1 million in new money. Allen now is due $6.685 million over the next four seasons, with $3 million fully guaranteed, including a $2 million signing bonus.

ANALYSIS: This deal reflects a case of forward thinking for both sides. For Allen, who entered the league as an undrafted free agent and was paid just $1,500 in guaranteed money at the time of signing, he now has security in the form of his guarantees and a deal that extends through what would be his sixth NFL season. For the team, it is able to lock up a player who has proven himself as a capable fixture and at an average annual salary that is right around league average for punters. The team consistently echoes a premium on special teams, and after signing it's kicker and punter to multi-year deals while also taking the only long snapper drafted this year, the Patriots have reinforced that message through their actions. That core is now all under contract through 2018."
