Dolphins closer to signing No. 1 draft pick, CB Allen

The major obstacle in the Jason Allen negotiations is no longer the number of years each side wants to agree upon, agent Mitch Frankel said Friday, but rather the total package of the deal.

''We've discussed both a five-year and a six-year contract and we would be willing to do a six-year contract,'' Frankel said. ``The hold-up now is not the length of the contract. We just haven't been able to agree on the overall terms.''

It is clear that Frankel expects more money to sign a six-year deal than what the Dolphins are offering.

Frankel said that talks continue, ''not every day, but we talk often.'' He also said he is hopeful that Philadelphia's signing on Thursday of defensive lineman Brodrick Bunkley, the 14th overall pick, might help move the Allen talks along.

Allen, a safety, was the Dolphins' first-round draft pick and the 16th overall selection in the April draft.

Still no signing. Brown held out 3 weeks last year. 2 1st rounders left and a S is one of them.
