Former Clemson tight end Dwayne Allen has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal worth $7 million with the Miami Dolphins on Saturday.

Allen brings veteran depth at the tight end position. In connection with this, Dwayne Allen has found a new team, indeed, a divisional rival Miami.

Released by the Patriots early last week in a cap-cutting move, Allen visited Baltimore, Buffalo and Detroit before his Dolphins visit on Friday.

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

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.

He is likely to split time in Miami with Mike Gesicki, who caught 22 passes for 202 yards in his rookie season but only started in seven games.

Now, Allen will play alongside fellow tight end Nick O'Leary, who the Dolphins signed to an extension in December.
