Allen suffered a fractured foot in Alabama's 2021 season opener versus the Miami Hurricanes, and the healing process has taken longer than Allen or the Broncos had originally hoped for.

In Allen's four-year career with the Tide the Louisiana native totaled 57 tackles, 19.5 for loss, 7.5 sacks and four forced fumbles.

Allen was abled to knab one sack in the opener before going down for the remainder of his senior season.

The ultra-talented Allen was in line for a big season before his injury and the Broncos decided to take a flyer on him, signing him as their highest paid undrafted free agent.

The injured reserve designation essentially redshirts Allen for his rookie year, but with the Broncos relative lack of talent at the edge rusher position, the team does not plan to give up on Allen yet.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
