"You could put a team (in London) but it's a lot to ask for a player," Allen said. "I wouldn't sign over here being that every road trip is 3-4-5 days away from your family, plus 11 hours for West Coast trips. It's tough on the players, family members, and logistically tough."
After just three days in Britain, Allen sounded like someone who wouldn't sign up for the experience again.
"I love my teammates but I really enjoy going home and being with my wife and daughter and being away from people," Allen said. "This is not high school or college. We get paid to win football games. We can all bond later."
Allen was pleased his team will at least avoid the jeers the players heard during Sunday's 31-27 home loss to the Cleveland Browns. He is just not sure what to expect from the local fans.
"I watched a couple of soccer matches, and those people get (into) it," Allen said. "Just don't storm the field and we'll be good."
