Josh Allen could have opened Buffalo Bill's training camp as the No. 3 quarterback, but he gets every chance to win the start job.
For this purpose, the bills already provide key people with the first layer unit. It took all two methods for Allen to take snaps with starters on Friday.
Coach Sean McDermott confirmed on Saturday that all three quarterbacks – Allen, AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman – will rotate regularly with the first team in the foreseeable future.
Anyone who already sips first team reps is a positive sign of a QB. Many scouts thought would need time before they were ready to start with questions about his footwork, decision making and accuracy. While these problems persist, there is no doubt that rookie owns a mammoth talent distribution compared to McCarron and Peterman.
Continuously trains how valuable each rope is, especially for quarterbacks who learn a system. If we accept these comments as meaningful, then Allen already earns the first team's reps is the first step in rookie who wins the job from training camps.
It will be interesting to see how the bills rotate their quarterbacks when one-season play starts August 9 (vs. Carolina). If Allen continues its upward development, it will be difficult for coaching staff to ignore the hype and bench their most talented QB to open the season.
If Allen clearly shows McCarron and Peterman, McDermott will have an interesting decision about whether to throw his rookie into the fire out of the gate with few weapons at his disposal, behind a remade offensive line that lost three key players.
At the moment Allen will settle to take some first team reps here and there until he has left his teeth.
