Dolphins cut former first round pick

By Marc A. Greenberg

The Miami Dolphins have released 2006 first round pick Jason Allen and signed veteran cornerback Al Harris.

Harris practiced with Miami on Wednesday, two days after being released by the Green Bay Packers.  The 35-year-old Harris hasn’t played since sustaining a left knee injury last November.

Harris started 102 games for the Packers from 2003 to 2009.

Allen, the 16th overall pick in 2006, has struggled to shake the label of draft bust. He won a starting job in training camp this season but was replaced last week by Sean Smith.
