Video: Former Clemson Tiger Dwayne Allen Speaks To Team, Preaches Serving Others And Giving Back

Dwayne Allen is one of the best tight ends in the history of Clemson football. The Fayetteville, N.C. native was a consensus first-team all-American and all-ACC player in 2011, his final season as a Tiger. That year, he won the John Mackey Award, given to the nation’s top tight end.  A third-round pick by the Indianapolis Colts, Allen has been a formidable player during his first...

Colts finished with Free Agency? Pagano still wants to run.

Last season we saw GM Ryan Grigson make a ton of free agency moves, and we found that most of them wound up being either busts or “wait and see” moves. Too much money was certainly spent on some players. So far this offseason the free agency moves have been more subtle, but they seem to carry more substance and more potential. I’m particularly happy with the singing of linebacker...

Should the Colts target a tight end in the draft?

The Indianapolis Colts have two solid starters at the tight end position in Dwayne Allen and Colby Fleener. So should that stop them from looking into the position in the later rounds of the NFL draft? Not necessarily. With having Allen and Fleener it will give the Colts the option to target bigger needs, yet if a player is on the Colts big board and is available a tight end might...

Veteran leadership needed at tight end for Colts

The Indianapolis Colts have one of the youngest cores at the tight end position in Colby Fleener and Dwayne Allen. Both will be entering their third year in the NFL and when healthy pose a serious threat to opposing defenses because of their rare size and athletic ability.

Should the Colts be making Eric Decker a top priority?

The Colts have a legitimate shot at catapulting into the top tier of offenses next season. We all know Andrew Luck is great, and he’s going to be even better in his third year. Likewise, T.Y. Hilton’s explosion onto the scene only marks the beginning of his full potential. Add that with the return of Reggie Wayne and Dwayne Allen from injury, and the list of options for Luck...

NFL Betting: Top 5 Upset Specials For Week 13

Picking upsets in the NFL is an exercise of futility that cannot be duplicated by any other league.  There is little to no rhyme or reason to any of it, a randomness that is enhanced by the league's parity and rarely allows for any noticeable pattern to develop over an extended period of time. The closest comparison would be filling out a bracket during the NCAA basketball...
