A few weeks after a report surfaced that the Dolphins planned to release cornerback Will Allen, they have come up with a way to keep him.

Drew Rosenhaus said on WQAM Thursday morning that the team and Allen re-structured his contract.  Rosenhaus said the two sides came up with a solution that was fair for both parties.

Allen was set to make $5.5 million in 2011, and took a paycut to come back.  The 10-year veteran has battled injury problems of late, and should be the team’s nickel back behind Vontae Davis and Sean Smith.
