Bruce Allen is the general manager of the Washington Redskins of the National Football League. Previously, Allen served as general manager for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2004-2008) and as a senior executive with the Oakland Raiders (1996-2003).

Allen is the son of former NFL head coach George Allen and brother of former Virginia governor and Senator George Allen.

Allen attended high school at Langley High School in McLean, Virginia and went on to the University of Richmond, where he played football for the Spiders in the 1974-1977 seasons. In his junior season, he ranked 16th nationally and broke the school record for punting, averaging 42.9 yards a kick; those numbers resulted in him being named to that year's All-ECAC and All-South Independent teams. In 1978, he was drafted in the 12th round by the Baltimore Colts.
