We’ll miss you, Honey Beau Beau.

Beau Allen won’t be returning to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2018.

This was already the expectation, and the Eagles’ reported signing of Haloti Ngata further confirmed it.

If you needed even more evidence, check out Allen’s goodbye message that he posted to Instagram on Tuesday afternoon.

A post shared by Beau Allen (@beau__allen) on

It’s crazy to think I got to Philadelphia 4 years ago. Thank you to the entire Eagles organization for giving me a shot. Thank you to the coaches and staff that have helped mold me into the player and person I am today. Huge shout out to the city and the fans! Thank you for embracing me and showing this dude from the Midwest what it means to be from Philly!

I put a lot of sweat and blood into the game of football during my time in Philadelphia and was rewarded with a Super Bowl Championship and memories that will last a lifetime. I can’t say enough about the teammates and brothers I’ve shared this experience with, I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world!

Philadelphia will always hold a special place in my heart and I will always share a special bond with my brothers that brought the Lombardi to Philly.

Excited to see what the future has for me!

Allen was a really good backup defensive tackle for the Eagles ever since being selected in the seventh-round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He made regular contributions as a defensive role-player and he was reliable when called upon for starting duty.

Off the field, Allen was a fun personality with a great sense of humor. He’ll be missed.

A number of teams have already reportedly showed interest in Allen. Here’s hoping he finds himself a great contract.
