  • Dwayne Allen: Released by Dolphins

    Allen (undisclosed) was released by the Dolphins on Saturday after reaching an injury settlement, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Allen suffered his injury in the latter half of the preseason, and it's unclear how severe the issue is. He's now a free agent, and he'll be able to sign and play for another team as soon as he's healthy.

  • Dolphins' Dwayne Allen: Returns to action Friday

    Allen started in Friday's preseason loss at Tampa Bay, logging eight of the 77 Dolphins' offensive snaps.

    Making his first appearance of exhibition season, Allen didn't make an impact in the stat sheet and was called for offensive holding on Miami's second drive. There's little to take from the effort, aside from the fact he appears to have put the injury behind him that held him out of the initial weeks of training camp. Now, he can begin in earnest his competition for TE slotting behind top option Mike Gesicki.

  • Dolphins' Dwayne Allen: Ramping up workload

    Allen (knee) participated in 11-on-11 drills Tuesday for the first time during training camp, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Allen began camp on the PUP list and has been steadily working to get back to full health. His involvement in team work is another notable step in the right direction, but the Dolphins haven't formally committed to the veteran tight end being ready to go for the regular season. When healthy, Allen projects to serve as the Dolphins' starting tight end, though he may mostly be tasked with run-blocking work whenever he's on the field.

  • Dolphins' Dwayne Allen: Could miss start of regular season

    Allen (undisclosed) could miss the start of the regular season, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    This comes as a bit of a surprise, as Allen was activated off the PUP list earlier in the week. The veteran tight end hopes to be ready for the start of the regular season, but without any sort of information regarding the injury or its severity, it's difficult to project his availability one way or another. The 29-year-old is likely locked in as the premier run-blocking tight end regardless of his status throughout the preseason, but Mike Gesicki figures to benefit from the increase in snaps, as the second-year tight end was already considered the primary pass catcher at the position.

  • Dolphins' Dwayne Allen: Back in action

    Allen (undisclosed) was activated off the Dolphins' PUP list Wednesday, Alain Poupart of the team's official site reports.

    The 29-year-old adds experience and strong blocking ability to the Dolphins' tight-end mix, but after combining for just 13 catches over the last two seasons with the Patriots, the free-agent addition needs to prove his fantasy utility within his new team context. It's worth noting that during Allen's stint with the Colts -- the team that drafted him in 2012 -- he recorded eight touchdowns in 2014 and six in 2016. Those numbers suggest that the 6-foot-4, 260-pounder could produce some in the red zone if given such opportunities by Miami.

  • Dolphins' Dwayne Allen: Should practice soon

    Allen (undisclosed) isn't expected to stay on the PUP list for long, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    Once he's cleared for practice, Allen will compete with Mike Gesicki for playing time at tight end. The second-year pro is a superior athlete with far more upside as a pass catcher, but Allen's blocking and experience could allow him to carve out a sizable role.

  • Dolphins' Dwayne Allen: Heads to PUP list

    Allen was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list by the Dolphins on Sunday.

    Allen was unable to participate in any offseason work while dealing with an undisclosed injury, and he now heads to the PUP list before training camp opens. Given the injury designation and lack of details regarding Allen's health, it's unclear how long he might be out for. Mike Gesicki figures to open training camp unopposed as Miami's No. 1 tight end.

  • Dolphins' Dwayne Allen: Not cleared to practice yet

    Allen (undisclosed) did not participate in mandatory minicamp Tuesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    Allen did not participate in any of OTAs the last two weeks while nursing an undisclosed injury, which still looks to be nagging at the tight end. Given that there have been no details given regarding Allen's health, it's a complete unknown as to how long the veteran could be out.

  • Dolphins' Dwayne Allen: Dealing with undisclosed injury

    Allen did not participate in OTAs on Tuesday due to an undisclosed injury, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Head coach Brian Flores did not add any specifics regarding Allen's injury, which likely means it isn't anything too serious, especially at this point in the offseason. The veteran tight end signed a two-year deal with the Dolphins back in March.

  • Dolphins' Dwayne Allen: Signing with Dolphins

    Allen will sign a two-year, $7 million deal with the Dolphins, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

    It didn't take long for the veteran free agent to find a new team following his release from the Patriots, as Allen nearly signed with the Ravens before ultimately locking in a two-year pack with the AFC East rival just days later. The team's 2018 second-round pick, Mike Gesicki, headlines a talented but unproven tight end depth chart. meaning Allen will likely reprise his role with the Patriots as a blocking specialist, albeit with a different team.

  • Dwayne Allen: Visiting Baltimore and Buffalo

    Allen is scheduled to head to Baltimore and Buffalo on Tuesday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

    Allen has wasted no time after getting released by the Patriots on Monday. The veteran tight end had 13 receptions and one touchdown during his two-season stint in New England.

  • Dwayne Allen: Released by Patriots

    Allen was released by the Patriots on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The veteran tight end was due a base salary of $6.4 million in 2019, which seemed to make this move a mere formality considering Allen had just 13 receptions total in the past two seasons. There's a possibility Allen could return to the Patriots for less money, but with a deep pool of potential replacements either via free agency or the upcoming draft, the 29-year-old might see a lukewarm response from other teams on the open market.

  • Patriots' Dwayne Allen: No targets in Super Bowl win

    Allen didn't draw any targets while playing 21 of 72 offensive snaps Sunday in the Patriots' 13-3 win over the Rams in Super Bowl LIII.

    As usual, Allen was limited to a blocking role during his time on the field and finished the postseason without any targets. Allen is under contract through 2019 but probably won't be in store for a significant role in the Patriots' passing game even if top tight end Rob Gronkowksi opts to retire over the offseason.
