The Ravens looking for blocking tight ends with both Nick Boyle and Maxx Williams scheduled for free agency, so Allen could be a fit. Utilized as more of an offensive weapon in his early days with the Colts, Allen settled into a more blocking-forward role with the Patriots in the last two seasons. Allen could also provide veteran counsel to tight ends Hayden Hurst and Mark Andrews, both of whom were selected in last year’s draft.
Allen, 29, recorded just 13 catches for 113 yards and one touchdown in his two seasons with the Patriots. In 2016, his last year with the Colts, he put up 35 catches for 406 yards and six TDs.
