The Los Angeles Chargers have shown interest in Philadelphia Eagles pending free agent defensive tackle Beau Allen per national NFL columnist John McMullen via Twitter:

Allen has been a productive, run stuffing defensive tackle for the Eagles in a backup role. Per our own Garrett Sisti’s scouting report, he has scheme versatility having played as a nose in the 3-4 as well as in a 4-3 under. While he brings little in the way of a pass rush, Allen is a potentially valuable player if he is able to act as a role player. He is by all accounts not the answer as a starter for the Chargers defense.

He is also quite a character and so if nothing else were the Chargers to sign him we would be able to enjoy that. Case in point:

Allen could end up being the kind of low cost, relatively high impact depth signing that has earned Tom Telesco the nickname around here of Coupon God. That is, of course, assuming that he is signed to that sort of contract and not one that suggests he can start.
