Ryan Allen: On open market again
Allen was released by the Falcons on Sunday, per the team's official Twitter account.
Allen was released and then quickly re-signed by Atlanta in March, as the team took advantage of minimum salary benefit rules to bolster its cap situation. This release seems less procedural in nature, however, and offers seventh-round rookie Sterling Hofrichter a chance to start immediately.

Allen signed with the Falcons on Saturday, per the Associated Press, and he is expected to serve as the team's starting punter during Sunday's game against Carolina.
