  • Colts trading Dwayne Allen to the Patriots

The Patriots have their succession plan for Martellus Bennett.

The New England Patriots are trading for Indianapolis Colts tight end Dwayne Allen, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. In exchange, the Patriots will be sending a fourth-round pick in 2017 back to Indianapolis while the Colts will also be receiving a sixth-rounder in 2017.

"If Bennett would be willing to make less than $8 million a year, it would seem the Patriots would love to have him back, but with him turning 30 this week it would appear he wants to cash in with one last decent-sized deal". In 57 career games, he has caught 126 passes for 1,451 yards and 19 touchdowns. Allen's 45 receptions his rookie season in 2012 show that he also can catch the football. New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski caused a stir when he sent out a cryptic tweet implying he's underpaid. Bennett arrived in New England with one year left on his contract after the Patriots pulled off a trade with the Bears in March 2016. Allen himself is no stranger to the injury report, having missed a combined 23 games (including 15 in 2013) over the past four seasons, but when healthy, the 6-foot-3, 265-pounder can do some damage in the red zone.

Las Vegas close to getting second NASCAR Cup race
And we can safely guess that Texas and Bristol aren't going to swap dates with Las Vegas if the track is to get a second Cup date. With a helping hand from lapped cars, the pole-winner was able to hold off fellow Cup driver Brad Keselowski by 0.606 seconds.

It's unlikely this deal would have gone down if Ryan Grigson still was general manager of the Colts. Because of that, the Patriots can keep him on the field in all situations, and they could have the luxury of spelling Gronkowski if necessary. For the Patriots, with their coaching staff, they have to imagine they can get the most out of Allen.

The proposed trade comes after the Colts resigned tight Jack Doyle.
