Josh Allen Had A Disgusted Reaction To Possibility of Bills Hitting Him With Franchise Tag (VIDEO)
2021 is the last year in which Josh Allen will be a cheap asset for the Buffalo Bills.
Allen wants to remain with the team long-term and showed the franchise just how good he can play last season when he threw for 4,544 yards, 37 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions, completing nearly 70-percent of his throws. He also mixed it up well by rushing for 421 yards and eight touchdowns.
Just recently, the former Wyoming star appeared on The Ringer’s “10 Questions with Kyle Brandt” and noted that he’s leaving all the contract talks up to his agent.
“When it happens, it happens,” he told the NFL Network host. “Honestly, I love playing football. I want to listen and be engaged in the contract talks. Ultimately that’s why you pay your agents, and that why you hire a guy like (Bills GM) Brandon Beane and (assistant GM) Joe Schoen, and the front office guys and what they do.”
“They’ll iron out the details, and if we can get to something soon, I’d obviously love to be locked down in Buffalo for a very long time,” Josh Allen continued. “It’s a place that I call home. I love being there. I love the fan base. I love the city.
“It’s everything that I want, is there. If they called up and wanted to talk tomorrow, I’d be willing, but we’ll see. We’ll cross that bridge when we get there.”
When asked about the possbility of being tagged, Allen had a disgusted reaction.
“Eww,” Allen gave as an immediate response to the tag. “I don’t think it’s great for the team, nor the player. Again, I need to do more research on it, but if you look at the guys that’ve been tags in the past couple years, as far as the quarterback position goes, it was Dak, and Kirk Cousins.
“And at the end of the day, you could make the case that they should’ve just done the deal the year prior, or a couple years prior. So it is what it is. At the end of the day, whatever happens, happens. It’s not gonna deter me from trying to be the best quarterback for the Bills.”
