"Once I made the decision, Josh Allen was the first person to call me from the organization".
"Yeah, most definitely. Not just me and him, all of the receivers and tight ends", Brown said. "Just excited to get to work with him, man, really pumped", Beasley said. "He was just amped up about (me signing)". Buffalo also promoted Chad Hall to wide receivers' coach and named Ken Dorsey the newest quarterback coach as they readied themselves for next season. You can tell what a guy's about by watching him play. I've seen him do things with his legs and the way he throws the ball. I was glad to hear from him.
Whether it's calling his new teammates, texting his GM, or organizing offseason get-togethers with his receivers, Allen is doing all of the right things off of the field, to solidify himself as the team's leader, despite being one of the youngest guys in the room at 22 years old.
"[He's] a good dude", Beasley said of Allen. "I love that (he was the first to call)". I could tell and hear it through the phone that he was hungry and eager to get better. In 2016, Beasley posted career-high totals in receptions (75) and receiving yards (833), while hauling in five touchdowns.
Austin caught eight passes for 140 yards and two touchdowns in seven games. He wasn't as utilized as in year's past and wanted to find a place where he could get more opportunity.
After hearing the Buffalo Bills newest players speak on Thursday, one thing is clear... entering only his second season in the NFL, Josh Allen is already maturing.
