In addition to Eric Winston and Israel Idonije, the Titans are hosting DB Jason Allen for a free-agent visit Monday.
The Titans may simply be kicking tires on all three. Allen was the 16th overall pick in the 2006 draft and has never found a positional home, shuttling between safety and corner. He couldn't get on the field in Cincinnati last year. Mon, Apr 29, 2013 04:30:00 PM

Bengals released CB Jason Allen.

After re-signing cornerbacks Adam Jones and Terence Newman, Allen wouldn't have been higher than fifth on the depth chart. He was due a prohibitive $3 million salary, making it an easy decision. The former first-round pick played just 3 defensive snaps in 2012. His release will count $500,000 against the cap.

Bengals.com wonders if CB Jason Allen is on the roster bubble.

With the re-signings of CBs Adam Jones and Terence Newman, Allen is no higher than the fifth cornerback on the depth chart. The soon-to-be 30-year-old former first-round pick is also due $3 million this season. Allen played just three snaps on defense last season.

Bengals signed DB Jason Allen, formerly of the Texans, to a two-year, $8.2 million contract.

Allen is a cornerback/safety hybrid at 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, and appeared in all 16 games with the Texans last season, making four starts. Allen figures to see extensive playing time in sub packages and could push Nate Clements for a starting job opposite Leon Hall. The alternative would be to use Allen at free safety, where the Bengals may lose free agent incumbent Reggie Nelson.

Free agent CB Jason Allen visited the Bengals.

It's his first known visit of free agency. Allen appeared in all 16 games for the Texans last season after being claimed off waivers in 2010, but made just four starts.

Coach Gary Kubiak said "there's absolutely no doubt" CB James Allen could push for a starting job.

Allen is showing "terrific ball skills" and avoiding mental errors in Wade Phillips' new defense, according to beat writer John McClain. He's also playing the run well and showing leadership on a defense that could certainly use it. Kareem Jackson is on notice.

New DBs coach Vance Joseph indicated that Jason Allen will be in the mix for a major role this season.

"He made some plays," Joseph said after watching 2010 tape. "That guy does some things that make you really, really excited. I’m looking forward to him playing corner for an entire training camp. Because his entire career, he’s been in between safety and corner." Allen is in a contract year. He had six interceptions in 2010, three with Miami and three with Houston.

CB Jason Allen is expected to make his Texans debut this weekend.

"My expectations are for him to play," coach Gary Kubiak said. "We'll catch him up. I'll have to see how he practices, but I expect him to be a part of what we're doing." The former Dolphin will have a limited role initially, but it's possible Allen could eventually work his way into the starting lineup.

Newly acquired CB Jason Allen could play Sunday against Jacksonville.

Allen will be primarily a backup and special teams player, though he certainly has the talent to make an impact off the bench. Said head coach Gary Kubiak, "if he gives us a chance to get better, we see him being a part of what we’re doing, hopefully, sooner than later." Though he has some experience at safety, Allen will be used at cornerback for the time being.

Texans claimed CB Jason Allen off waivers from the Dolphins.

It's nice pickup for a secondary in need of a talent infusion, though Allen isn't a great bet to make an immediate impact. The Texans seem intent on letting Kareem Jackson play his way through a rocky rookie season. With the ability to also play safety, Allen will be primarily a backup and special teamer in the short term.

Dolphins waived CB Jason Allen.

Just when Allen appeared to be turning his career around, he went back in the tank. The No. 16 overall pick in the 2006 draft (a Nick Saban selection), Allen was shuttled between safety and corner throughout his first four seasons. The light seemed to flip on when Allen beat out Sean Smith fair and square to start at right cornerback and picked off three early-season passes, but the bottom fell out quickly thereafter. It will be interesting to see if he's claimed on waivers. Allen has never lacked in the talent department.

Jason Allen and Sean Smith are expected to rotate at right cornerback for the Dolphins going forward.

After being picked apart by Ben Roethlisberger in Week 7, Allen was benched for Smith, who came on and also struggled mightily. Though Vontae Davis is still playing well, the rest of the Dolphins' pass defense is tanking, having given up 300-plus passing yards in back-to-back games. They're not an imposing matchup for Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco in Week 8.

Dolphins CB Jason Allen recorded seven tackles and picked off two Bret Favre passes in the Dolphins Week 2 victory at Minnesota.

Allen was assigned to cover Bernard Berrian, and held the wideout to 2 catches for 24 yards. Although he won the right cornerback job out of training camp, the former Volunteer doesn't possess the overall talent to have many more games like this.
Sun, Sep 19, 2010 05:01:00 PM

Jason Allen is slated to start the Dolphins' third preseason game at right cornerback over Sean Smith.

Smith struggled in camp, so he's been put on notice. While Smith is definitely a better option that the former draft bust Allen, the Miami Herald believes there's a real possibility that Smith could open the season coming off the bench. Beat writer Omar Kelly suggests Allen is being showcased for a trade.

Dolphins DB Jason Allen is expected to be on the roster bubble in training camp.

Allen's roster spot was in danger last summer as well, but his special teams work kept him around. He's an "afterthought" in the team's free safety competition, so the Dolphins may finally sever ties with the 2006 first-rounder.
