Allen was claimed off waivers from the Bucs last week but was inactive for his only game as a member of the 49ers last Sunday against the Falcons. His release clears room for the addition of Andrew Gardner.
The 49ers bring in Allen as Daniel Kilgore (knee) was placed on injured reserve. Previously on the Buccaneers' practice squad, the 24-year-old likely will play backup to new starting center Marcus Martin.
Allen was released by the Buccaneers on Saturday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The Buccaneers needed to make room for the return of running back Charles Sims (knee) from IR-R, so unfortunately for Allen his roster spot was taken.
