Dolphins add veteran tight end Dwayne Allen

Dolphins add veteran tight end Dwayne Allen

While the Miami Dolphins are preparing to go through a youth movement, the front office has deemed it fit to bring in a veteran voice to the extremely young tight end room by signing Dwayne Allen to a two-year, $7 million dollar deal, as reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The signing was initially reported by Josina Anderson, who received a text from Allen stating that he would be signing with Miami.

But though the Dolphins are expected to use doses of two tight end sets, it also raises questions about how much the Dolphins are expecting from Gesicki, the team's second round pick a year ago. During his time in New England, however, Allen was utilized nearly exclusively as a blocker.

The 29-year-old Allen had reduced his 2018 base salary to $3 million in the 2018 offseason to remain with the Patriots.

Allen was more involved in the passing game with the Colts, catching 126 passes for 1,451 yards and 19 touchdowns in five seasons after Indianapolis selected him in the third round (64th overall) of the 2012 draft.

For his National Football League career, the seven-year National Football League veteran has 139 receptions for 1,564 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Smythe, the team's fourth round pick last April, was drafted with the hope that he could become a high-level National Football League blocking tight end, his strength at Notre Dame. Tight ends A.J. Derby and MarQueis Gray become free agents this off-season.
