It's pretty reasonable for Allen, and the majority seem to agree.

Edit: actually, Allen's contract converts to $2.84 mil if you do the math relatively to salary cap that was in 08/09. Which was when Greene signed his contract, with a cap hit of $2.95 mil. Greene's contract compares to a $3.64 mil contract today.
What this guy said, even put the maths in for us lazy people
