One Buffalo Bills veteran in particular said some kind words about Josh Allen that could point to the rookie progressing quite quickly so far.
A tweet showed up on the void known as Twitter yesterday that caught my eye. It had to do with the Buffalo Bills, and of course it involved the quarterback situation.
Some nice words from a Bills veteran were shared throughout the day, but ESPN’s Chris Mortensen made an interesting point in response to LeSean McCoy talking highly of Josh Allen.
So what does this mean?
One obvious answer is that McCoy is a great teammate and is pumping up his new rookie quarterback. That is the most likely answer because it is still June and McCoy has seen enough quarterbacks shine in shorts to know that all that matters is how they play on Sundays.
He has no reason to talk down about Allen, so when asked about the rookie he is only likely going to say positive things all summer.
Still, winning the support of the rest of the team is huge for Allen, especially after some offensive old tweets leaked right around the draft. But as of right now, he seems to have moved past those.
The one thing still of note is that Allen has yet to sign his rookie contract. He isn’t the only rookie who is still waiting to do so, but that would sure be an unnecessary distraction if he isn’t signed before training camp. I don’t think that will happen, but it is something to keep an eye on.
I know some fans will see the words from McCoy and the tweet from Mortensen as a sign that Allen will be the man to lead this offense right from the start. That may be true, so stay tuned. The comments should only get more juicy from here on out.
