Colts sign third-round pick Dwayne Allen

The Colts rookies started three days of workouts without tight end Dwayne Allen on Wednesday.

That will be the only day without Allen. The third-round pick from Clemson tweeted a picture of himself signing his contract on Wednesday afternoon. That leaves the Colts with only second-round tight end Coby Fleener left to sign from their 2012 draft class. If Colts owner Jim Irsay’s own tweet is to be believed, that shouldn’t be the case much longer.

Allen (and Fleener, that matter) is going to play a lot for the Colts in 2012 as they have completely overhauled their tight end position. Allen will probably be responsible for a bit more of the blocking than Fleener, but he has good hands and should be a reliable target for Andrew Luck in the years to come.
