Buffalo Bills’ new space program?
Speaking of Allen, he was spotted launching some footballs into orbit while working with his offseason quarterback coach and former NFL quarterback, Jordan Palmer.
In a video that went viral for what seemed to be such an easy feat of skill for Allen, he was recorded connecting with a target some 75-yards away. These videos are nothing new to the Bills fan base as they have known since his draft day that Allen is a near once-in-a-generation arm talent.
Coming into the 2019 NFL Draft, all of the top 5 quarterbacks had their pros and cons. Louisville’s Lamar Jackson was seen as an incredible running quarterback but lacked the arm to excel in the NFL, boy were they wrong.
In Allen’s case, experts said that there was no question that the arm strength was there as he showed it off heavily in the Mountain West conference but the question mark around him was his accuracy. Allen has certainly progressed from his rookie year going from a completion percentage of 52.8% to 58.8% last year, which is impressive in of it itself considering how many drops the Bills skill position players accounted for last season.
Moving along into his third season under center, with elite-level talent around him with the addition of draft picks and free agents, there is a strong belief that Allen can yet again take another step forward and connect with Stefon Diggs on one of those long bombs this season.
