Tight end Dwayne Allen is set to join another AFC East team. The veteran told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that he’s going to sign with the Dolphins (Twitter link). It’s a two-year deal worth $7MM, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
The veteran has been busy since being released by the Patriots last week. The 29-year-old also met with the Ravens, Bills, and Lions. We learned earlier this week that Allen was set to meet with Miami.
The 2012 third-round pick spent the first six years of his career with the Colts before being dealt to the Patriots in 2017. After having compiled at least 350 receiving yards in three of his five healthy seasons, Allen didn’t play as much of a role in the offense during his two seasons in New England.
In 29 games (16 starts), Allen only hauled in 13 receptions for 113 yards and one score. While Allen has earned some recent praise for his blocking prowess, Pro Football Focus still ranked him 65th among 70 eligible tight ends in 2018.
