The New England Patriots announced that they acquired TE Dwayne Allen in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for an undisclosed draft selection.
Allen, 27, originally entered the NFL as a third-round draft pick (64th overall) out of Clemson by Indianapolis in the 2012 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-3, 265-pounder, has appeared in 57 regular-season games with 56 starts and registered 126 receptions for 1,451 yards and 19 touchdowns. In two playoff seasons with the Colts, he has played in four postseason contests and caught 15 passes for 141 yards and one touchdown. As a rookie in 2012, Allen led all rookie tight ends in receptions (45) and receiving yards (521). In 2016, Allen started in all 14 games that he played and posted 35 receptions for 406 yards and six touchdowns.
The Patriots appear to have gotten a jump on free agency by agreeing to a trade with the Indianapolis Colts. According to NFL Network, the Patriots will acquire Colts tight end Dwayne Allen jersey, although the tweet from Ian Rapoport did not include the compensation, ESPN’s Field Yates indicated it may be a late-round pick.
He’s only in town briefly, then plans to return to the Carolinas to resume his offseason training, but before that, Dwayne Allen became the first new voice on the Patriots roster to describe what it was like to learn that he’d joined the reigning Super Bowl champions. Allen, for whom New England traded with Indianapolis this week, gave 10 minutes of his time in Foxborough to field questions from reporters on a midday conference call Friday.

TE Dwayne Allen is one of the newest Patriots, having come over from Indy in a recent trade. A WEEI.com column examines how Allen might be utilized this season in New England.
For a team that may be as close to a Final 53 as any team in the NFL at this early stage of the off-season, it’s difficult to think about what younger players might stick to this roster, let alone contribute right away in some fashion. But if you read the tea-leaves beforehand, there are some hints out there. Mind you, nothing is ever set in stone prior to training camp. There is always room for the unexplained, unanticipated performance that can turn a few heads.
Hollister also has a twin brother, Cody, who signed and played tight end at Arkansas. If either Hollister shows enough blocking skill to go along with good receiving ability you might find a winner, considering the injury problems the team has had at this position recently.
According to CBS Sports’ projections, Jacob Holliser was slated to be drafted either in the seventh round or be signed as an undrafted free agent, while Cody was also looking at signing after the draft as the most likely option.
During his senior season at Wyoming, Jacob Hollister caught 32 balls for 515 yards and seven touchdowns. For the Razorbacks last season, Cody Holliser caught just 10 passes for 140 yards.
It won’t be easy for either of the two brothers to make it on to the opening 53-man roster as the Patriots already have a pretty crowded bunch at both the tight end and wide receiver positions.
We’re making an exception for the Hollister twins, however, both of whom signed with the Patriots shortly after the 2017 NFL Draft concluded Saturday afternoon. That’s right: New England’s 90-man roster this offseason will feature twin brothers Jacob and Cody Hollister. The former is a tight end out of Wyoming, and the latter played wide receiver at Arkansas.
