It seems all too familiar when you hear, or read, the name Jason Allen. This time around, the 3 year FS has been demoted while FS Chris Crocker got the promotion. Crocker the new blood Miami Dolphin was listed as the number 1 FS on the new depth chart.
Before anyone, including myself, start to rip Jason Allen, it should be noted that he hasn’t played bad thus far in pre-season and his energy level and enthusiasm has been through the roof. This may simply be a matter of Crocker playing better.
The former Cleveland Brown and Atlanta Falcon has been in the league for 6 years. Earlier this off-season when Chris joined the Dolphins, his agent said that he was coming to Miami and was told that he would be “competing” for the starting job. Apparently he won it.
While Jason Allen still stands to see significant playing time this season, the fact that he has yet to make an impact since being drafted number 16 overall only 3 drafts ago is teetering on becoming yet another failed draft pick for the Phins.
