Allen (undisclosed) reached an injury settlement with the Texans on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Allen is now removed from the Texans injured reserve and is free to sign elsewhere. The 27-year-old has bounced around numerous teams since going undrafted in 2014.
Allen (undisclosed) reverted to injured reserve Sunday.
Even at full strength, Allen likely wasn't going to work his way onto the first team offense in Houston. The Southern University product will have the chance to earn his keeps next year with whoever takes a go at him.
Allen was waived with an injury settlement by the Texans on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The exact nature of Allen's injury is currently unknown, but with the injury settlement, the veteran tight end will have the ability to sign with any team he wishes as soon as he is healthy enough to play.
