Contrary to popular belief, Patriots still have a few wide receivers on the roster

The receiving corps isn’t as bad as many have tried to portray. People have been freaking out about the shape of the New England Patriots’ receiving corps right now — saying that the Patriots are making it more difficult on Tom Brady, and that they aren’t doing enough to make their passing attack any more dangerous. But everyone needs to take a deep breath and relax. After all, the receivers look incredibly close to what they were last year. So far, the Patriots have lost Cordarrelle Patterson and Dwayne Allen, and will possibly also lose Chris Hogan. Those three had only 59...

Chiefs release Justin Houston; could the Patriots be interested?

Houston could be a contingency option in case Trey Flowers leaves. With the NFL’s 2019 free agency only three days away, the tempo of the league’s offseason is starting to pick up — from players like the New England Patriots’ Dwayne Allen getting released and signed, to teams making trades. One of the latest transactions was made by the AFC’s runner-ups earlier today: the Kansas City Chiefs released star edge defender Justin Houston to increase their salary cap space. Coming off a season during which he appeared in a combined 14 games and registered 9.0 sacks during the regular...

Ex-Patriots tight end Dwayne Allen signs with Dolphins

The veteran has found a new club. One week ago today, the New England Patriots parted ways with tight end Dwayne Allen. Allen, who spent the 2017 and 2018 seasons in New England after he was acquired via trade from the Indianapolis Colts, was scheduled to hit the team’s salary cap with $7.3 million in 2019 — a number apparently too high for the world champions’ liking given his actual contributions: he was primarily a blocker during his tenure with the Patriots. Despite his rather one-dimensional role, however, the veteran tight end quickly generated interest on the open market with...

Dolphins sign free agent TE Dwayne Allen

The Bills were interested in the veteran tight end. Though the Buffalo Bills hosted Dwayne Allen on Wednesday, the seven year veteran decided to sign a contract on Saturday with the Miami Dolphins. The two-year deal is for $7 million, according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport.

During his first five seasons with the Colts, Allen put up 19 total touchdowns but when he went to New England he...

Jamie Collins released by Browns; don’t get your hopes up for a Patriots reunion

The linebacker is free to sign with any team now. Few months on the NFL calendar are as busy as March: while the season is over, teams will make plenty of transactions with free agency starting and the salary cap going in effect — this, in turn, also leads to clubs regularly getting rid of high-cost players. The New England Patriots made such a move earlier this week, when they released tight end Dwayne Allen whose $7.3 million cap hit was not reasonable relative to his production. Another 2019 cap casualty was just announced: the Cleveland Browns parted ways with Jamie Collins. Cutting...

The team apparently felt that the investment and Allen’s actual contributions to the offense were in no relation to each other, and pulled...
