    Everyone talked him up as the best blocking TE in the draft and they kept talking about it during preseason until we all saw what we saw, just like I've posted it takes most rooks a few years to figure their niche out.

    Dolphins signed TE Dwayne Allen to a two-year, $7 million contract.
    Allen had interest from multiple teams after his Patriots release. The Dolphins are counting on a second-year leap from Mike Gesicki, but Allen should slot in as the primary in-line tight end ahead of Nick O'Leary. 29-year-old Allen could have a larger pass game role with Miami after being limited to blocking in New England.

    Will our Dolphins become a revamped New England Patriots?

    Rather ride with Smythe and spend 7 million elsewhere.

    Best movie ever.

    Without question the film I've watched the most times in my life. By a wide margin too.

    I still struggle to comprehend Landfill's resurrection but I try to ignore it.

    Seems like a good TE for a 3-13 team

    At last we have a TE that can block a DE one on one and people are complaining about 3.5mill?

    I'm guessing you've never seen The Godfather?

    Another thing to remember is that by signing a waived veteran, it won't count against potential comp picks in the draft.

    People complain about all the comp picks the Pats get, but there is a formula, and they just know how to use it to their advantage. Maybe we'll start playing the system more too.

    I've been a fan of his since his college days. Crowded TE group which makes it not the most exciting of pickups but a solid addition nonetheless.

    Can't believe so many people bickering at the salary either. Ok, maybe 2.5 would have been more fair. It's not a lot of money either way for someone who is instantly a likely starter

    A blocking tight end in Baltimore just got $6M per year. Ed Dickson last season got paid slightly more per year.

    He absolutely would not have gotten the vet minimum anywhere else. You're complaining about something that's not worth complaining about.
