New England Patriots reportedly will release tight end Dwayne Allen

Almost a month removed from the Super Bowl, the Patriots are set to make their first significant roster move.

The New England Patriots are releasing tight end Dwayne Allen, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Allen arrived in New England via trade from the Colts in the 2017 offseason. The 29-year-old struggled to stay on the field last season, missing three games during the regular season and not appearing in any of New England's postseason games. Allen, a seven-year National Football League veteran, scored 19 touchdowns in five seasons with the Colts, but caught just 13 passes for 113 yards and a touchdown in two seasons in New England.

But he was still a trusted member of the Patriots' offense, playing in over 40 percent of snaps in the 13 games he played in 2018.

As Bon crawled toward her, she held the gun over her head and used a chair to protect herself from him before tossing it away. The suspect, 59-year-old Larry Ray Bon, is from MI but recently was living in the West Palm Beach area, according to Fleck.

For the second straight offseason, and coming off a down year in production prior to huge plays to help the Patriots win the AFC title game and Super Bowl LIII, Gronkowski has openly talked about the possibility of retirement as he heads toward his 30th birthday.

After making $3.38 million in base salary past year, Allen was due to make a $6.9 million salary in 2019, while carrying a cap hit higher than $7.3 million. In 2017, he had 10 receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown.

It comes as no surprise the Patriots have been very active at the combine meeting with tight ends.
