Patriots will release former Clemson TE


by - Assoc. Editor -

The New England Patriots will be releasing tight end Dwayne Allen according to multiple reports.

"This is the business of football," Allen told ESPN's Josina Anderson on Saturday about his release. "I have a lot of football left in me."

The Patriots will create $7,306,250 in cap space by releasing the 29-year-old.

Allen had a career-low 3 catches (4 targets) for 27 yards with the Patriots last season. In 2017, he had 10 receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown. One of his best seasons as a professional was his rookie season with the Colts where he had 45 catches for 521 yards and three touchdowns.

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

Allen will now become an unrestricted free agent. However, the Pats are reportedly open to re-signing Allen later for a much lower price.

If Allen can get on a team besides the Patriots, he might get some passes thrown his way in the future.
