Former Clemson TE to sign with Dolphins

Dwayne Allen has signed with the Dolphins

Tight end Dwayne Allen plans to stay in the AFC East, telling ESPN's Josina Anderson on Saturday that he will sign a two-year contract with the Miami Dolphins.

Because Allen's greatest strength is blocking, Allen's signing would seemingly most impact Smythe and O'Leary, who are considered the best blockers of the three tight ends.

Allen made nine starts for the Patriots during the regular season, his seventh in the National Football League, and was used primarily as a blocker.

Allen was cut by the Patriots on Monday to free up over seven million in cap space.

The Patriots acquired Allen before the 2017 season in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts.

United States trade deficits hit record high following Trump tariff wars
That reflected a deterioration of more than US$100 billion from the figure that Trump inherited from President Barack Obama. Americans are importing far more from overseas than they are exporting-imports grew 7.5% while exports increased only 6.3%.

The 29-year old had a career-low three catches (4 targets) for 27 yards with the Patriots last season.

With the Dolphins being run by former Patriots defensive coach Brian Flores, the tight end position is likely to become a focal point of the new offense - much like New England, so Allen will be the flawless stopgap while young players Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe work on further acclimation to the National Football League level.

Gesicki had a disappointing rookie season (22 catches for 202 yards) and was subpar as a blocker.

Allen becomes the most experienced and accomplished tight end on the Dolphins roster. He had a scheduled base salary of $6.4 million for the 2019 season.
