Allen would tweet about the news:
Allen's numbers have dropped significantly since his rookie season in 2012 in which he played all 16 games and caught 45 passes for 521 yards.
A hip injury sidelined him for 15 games in 2013, but he managed to return in 2014 and put up decent numbers. That wasn't the case in 2015:
|13.6||Yards Per Catch||6.8|
Granted, it was a difficult season for most of the Colts due to the injury struggles experienced by starting quarterback Andrew Luck, who appeared in seven games. Indianapolis had the 22nd-ranked passing offense, which was led by a number of quarterbacks, including Matt Hasselbeck, Charlie Whitehurst, Ryan Lindley and Josh Freeman.
Allen still was unable to find much success as he became a second option behind Coby Fleener, who was third on the team with 54 receptions last season. Fleener is set to become an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday.
On Feb. 17, the team signed Cameron Clear, a 6'5", 277-pound tight end who will probably be used for blocking because he hasn't caught a single pass in his NFL career, per Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.
