The Miami Dolphins have cycled through cornerbacks in recent years. Apparently, they've had enough of that.

Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano looks ahead to the 2009 season.

A month after selecting cornerbacks Vontae Davis and Sean Smith within the first 61 picks of the draft, the Dolphins have signed left corner Will Allen to a two-year extension, agent Drew Rosenhaus said Tuesday.

Rosenhaus announced on his Twitter page that Allen's deal is worth $16.2 million over the next three years, with $10 million in guarantees.

Allen recorded 50 tackles, three interceptions, 15 pass defenses and a forced fumble last year for AFC East champion Miami.

Since signing Allen in 2006, the Dolphins have started Andre Goodman, Michael Lehan, and Travis Daniels on the right side. None is no longer with the team.
