Dolphins corner a DB, bring in Giants' Allen

DAVIE, Fla. (March 20, 2006) -- Cornerback Will Allen signed a four-year contract with the Miami Dolphins after spending the last five seasons with the New York Giants.

The Dolphins also signed tight end Justin Peelle to a three-year deal.

Allen is expected to replace Sam Madison, a longtime Miami starter whom the Giants signed as a free agent this month. Allen started 71 of the 72 games he played with the Giants, who drafted him in the first round in 2001. He had eight interceptions with the Giants.

Peelle was San Diego's fourth-round draft choice in 2002. He has 40 catches for 270 yards and four touchdowns in his career.
