  • Packers' Austin Allen: Gets new deal with Green Bay

    The Packers signed Allen to a reserve/future contract Tuesday.

    Allen will stick with Green Bay after joining the team's practice squad Jan. 3. The tight end out of Nebraska originally signed with the Giants as an undrafted rookie in May, though he was cut from the team's practice squad Oct. 18 before ever making his NFL debut. Allen will now look to make an impression with the Packers this offseason.

  • Austin Allen: Joins Packers' practice squad

    The Packers signed Allen to their practice squad Tuesday, per the team's official site.

  • Austin Allen: Returns on practice squad

    The Giants signed Allen to the practice squad Wednesday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

    The Giants' dropped Allen as part of the team's final roster cuts Tuesday, but he returned via the team's practice squad upon clearing waivers. The 6-foot-9 rookie out of Nebraska should be an interesting developmental prospect for Big Blue, and he could even serve as a receiving threat should the team suffer multiple injuries at tight end this regular season.

  • Austin Allen: Waived by Big Blue

    The Giants waived Allen on Tuesday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

    Allen signed with the Giants in May as an undrafted free agent out of Nebraska, where he caught 38 passes for 602 yards and two touchdowns during his final collegiate campaign. The 6-foot-9 tight end caught all four of his targets for 40 yards and a score during the team's preseason finale, but he finds himself among a wave of cuts ahead of Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline. Per Leonard, Allen will likely sign a practice squad deal with the Giants if he clears waivers.

  • Giants' Austin Allen: Catches TD in preseason loss

    Allen hauled in four of four targets for 40 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's exhibition loss to the Jets.

    The Giants had 14 different players notch at least one reception in the contest, and Allen had the only touchdown on an 18-yard connection with Davis Webb in the fourth quarter. Allen signed with New York as an undrafted free agent in May after racking up 602 yards on 38 catches with Nebraska last year. He's not guaranteed a spot on the 53-man roster but certainly has a shot given the lack of depth at the tight-end position behind fellow rookie Daniel Bellinger.
