Buffalo Bills quarerback Josh Allen just wrapped up his rookie season and the team already knows what they want their young signal caller to work on this offseason.
Improving his short passing game.
“We love his aggressiveness,” Bills general manager Brandon Beane said, according to Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News.
“He thinks he can make any throw, and he can physically, but sometimes that’s not the smart play. I think that’s what Josh is learning. That’s natural. He’s so competitive that he wants to pick up that first down now, and sometimes it’s OK to take the swing pass for 5 yards and get it to second and 5, instead of a harder throw 18 yards down the field in a tight window that has a 50-50 chance and now it’s second and 10.”
Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll believes that Allen needs to approach the game by taking what the defensive gives him, at times.
“People are playing Josh a little bit different than they play some other people, whether it’s a deeper safety, the corners bailing off,” Daboll said.
“I think we can help ourselves, too, by taking what they give us on some of those verticals.”
Dolphins, Reshad Jones Likely Parting Ways
Jones, 31, skipped voluntary workouts and the Dolphins seem to be heading to a parting of ways.
The Dolphins have a younger option to play at safety in Minkah Fitzpatrick, and Jones has expressed his unhappiness, in-game, as recent as last season when he took 10 snaps off against the New York Jets.
Miami is likely shopping Jones, who is still productive, but no longer the elite safety he has been in his Pro Bowl years.
Patriots Sign Demaryius Thomas
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, Thomas’ new deal is a one-year pact worth up to $6 million.
Overall, Thomas hauled in 59 receptions for 677 yards and 6 scores in 2018.
Thomas tore his Achilles in December, making his status uncertain at this time.
