OFFICIAL: Colts trade Dwayne Allen to Patriots

8 posts in this topic

Big upgrade over Bennett. And a solid starter if Gronk misses time..........again. Pats just keep adding solid pieces.

Wow.  Didn't expect the Pats to be the ones to trade for Allen.

 

Any word on what they gave up?

Edit: Looks like a 6th rounder

Nope Patriots get Allen and a 6th and colts get a 4th

I tell you what... There were rumours during the season that the Pats were considering letting Gronk go. Could this be a move in that direction? I can well believe that it might be!

Thanks, It was early when I saw it.  That seems more balanced.  I'd say it tips slightly more favorable to the colts as they just gave Doyle that contract and have him set up to be the guy.  (Free's up just under 3 million)

I suppose this means Bennett is gone from the Pats. I won't say Allen is a big upgrade over Bennett.. He's better blocking but I don't think he's as dynamic a receiver. Allen is a better complement to Gronk, not so much a replacement.

The Pats' offense uses two tight end sets a lot as both pass catchers. They are still looking for Hernandez's replacement. I think they found it. I don't think they cut Gronk yet
