Colts sign 3rd-round draft pick Dwayne Allen

Share This Story



The Indianapolis Colts have signed tight end Dwayne Allen, their third-round draft pick in April.

Team officials did not provide details about the contract. The deal means Allen will report on time to camp Saturday. The team's first full practice at Anderson University, about 30 miles northeast of Indy, is scheduled for Sunday.

Allen is expected to help rookie quarterback Andrew Luck transition to the NFL. Colts coach Chuck Pagano and offensive coordinator Bruce Arians say they could use lots of two tight end formations. Luck also is accustomed to giving tight ends a hefty workload from his college days at Stanford.

The signing leaves only one of Indy's 10 draft picks, tight end Coby Fleener, unsigned. Fleener was taken in the second round. Luck signed his contract last week.
