The Miami Dolphins have restructured the contract of CB Will Allen. The 10 year veteran will compete against Sean Smith for the starting job opposite Vontae’ Davis.
The deal specifics were not released but Allen’s signing will give the team needed depth. Allen missed all of last season when the Dolphins prematurely put him on IR following a knee scope. It was expected that the team would release Allen who was due 5.5 million this year.
Allen could play a key role in the Dolphins defense if he is able to return to his 2009 form. A steady coverage corner, Allen was missed at times last year and his return will allow the Dolphins to fill other more important needs both on their offense and the depth across the team in general.
