Dolphins Restructure Will Allen Contract


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.

    Hey, I’m one of the new co-editors at NFLmocks and was wondering if you or one of the writers here would be interested in helping us out with draft information.

    I’m looking for two main things:

    1) An email with your take on the team’s draft needs

    2) you’re participation in a network-wide mock draft where a representative from each team will take turns making a pick?

    You have my email address in the admin post and I’d really appreciate the help and think it can benefit both sites.

    Thanks,

    Jesse

    I’ve liked Allen for a while now but it’s hard to imagine a 10 yr vet coming off a major knee injury would be able to keep up with defending a lot of the receivers in our division, as well as across the league. I will be pulling for him though because Smith gets exposed a little too often for my tastes. He should be covering TE’s…

    Good! I have always enjoyed the football stylings of Will Allen however, I realize he can not escape aging woes along with the surgery he had last year. He has always been one to leave it all on the field and the Fins can only benefit from his tenacity, leadership, not to mention the added depth to that position.
