Lost in the crevices of one of the busiest and most hectic NFL news days in recent memory (if not ever) was the acquisition by the Patriots of a veteran defensive back.
Will Allen has joined the team, the Patriots announced moments ago. Multiple reports indicate it’s a one-year deal.
Allen, an 11-year veteran, was a first-round pick of the Giants in 2001. He spent five years in New York and then six with the Dolphins.
In 2011, Allen appeared in 15 games with six starts for the Dolphins. From 2004 through 2009, he started 85 of 86 regular-season games.
