CelebNSports247.com reports that the Patriots longtime player Ryan Allen, who began his NFL journey as an undrafted free agent of the club in 2013, has been cut from the team.
New England Patriots longtime player Ryan Allen is no longer part of Boston’s NFL team. Nope, the Partriots have shown him the door.
Ryan Allen’s NFL journey has come to an end at the age of 29 with the Patriots, according to Jim McBride of The Boston Globe.
CBS Sports reports:
The Patriots opted to move on from Allen and will free up roughly $1.4 million in much-needed cap space in the process. Allen was set to be a free agent in 2020, after signing a one-year deal worth that amount in March.
Allen is now a free agent looking for a new home in the NFL.
His veteran boot has logged 18,526 yards and averages 45.3 yards per punt, with his 66-yarder in 2018 being just one yard shy of his career-best 67-yard mark set in 2014 and duplicated the very next season. Allen has 409 punts under his belt but has been blocked only twice in his six-year career, and considering field position is the name of the game in the NF.
The Patriots will now pass the mantle to rookie fifth-round pick Jake Bailey, who impressed at Stanford en route to landing second-team All-Pac 12 honors in both 2017 and 2018.
