Dwayne Allen is reuniting with Brian Flores in South Florida.

The Miami Dolphins agreed to terms with the former New England Patriots tight end on a two-year, $7 million deal, a source told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on Saturday.

Allen was released by the Patriots on Monday after spending two seasons with the club. Before joining Miami, the tight end had received interest from the Baltimore Ravens, Chicago Bears and Seattle Seahawks.

Primarily used as a blocking tight end in New England while Rob Gronkowski played both roles, Allen left the Pats with just 13 receptions with 113 yards and a touchdown.

Allen was more of a receiving threat with the Indianapolis Colts, with whom he spent the first five seasons of his career. With Indy, Allen logged 126 receptions for 1,451 yards and 19 TDs.
