The Buffalo Bills released running back Anthony Allen today, the team announced. The move comes two days after Buffalo added to its running back stable by trading for Bryce Brown.
Allen had been signed in January as a "street free agent." He was a seventh-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens in 2011 but was cut by the Ravens in training camp last summer. Brown, acquired in the deal with Philadelphia on Saturday, enters the backfield depth chart behind veterans C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson. The Bills also signed running back Anthony Dixon as a free-agent from San Francisco in March.
