The Colts had two tight ends poised to become free agents. They now have one. But the one who re-signed isn’t the one anyone expected to re-sign.
Per a league source, the Colts and tight end Dwayne Allen have worked out a four-year, $29.4 million deal. He’ll get $12 million in year one, $17 million total through two years, and $22 million through three years. The includes $16 million guaranteed; it’s unclear how much is fully guaranteed at signing.
A third-round pick in 2012, Allen had 16 catches last year.
The question now becomes whether the Colts will retain tight end Coby Fleener, a second-round pick in 2012. He had a career-high 54 receptions in 2015.
