Allen was waived Friday by the Buccaneers, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
This will be the sixth time in his career that Allen has been let go by the Buccaneers, and it comes after a preseason finale where the guard played every snap. Allen could potentially end up on the team's practice squad.
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.
