A defensive lineman got a little too close to Josh Allen at training camp on Saturday, and the Buffalo Bills quarterback was not happy about it. Allen sparked a brief altercation with defensive tackle Jordan Phillips at their training camp when he was bumped after the play.
The No. 1 rule of training camp is don’t touch the quarterback.
One day after the incident, the Buffalo Bills QB took to Twitter to respond to the melee.
“Man I love football. the boys got going yesterday, and it’s all love! First day of pads, just pushing each other to be great. that is all!”
Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reported that Bills defensive linemen were “buzzing around” Allen during practice, as apparently, tensions were high.
Allen, who signed a monster six-year, $258 million extension last August, is coming off of another big season, as he went 11-6 as the starter and threw for 4,407 yards, 36 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions while Buffalo made it to the divisional round of the playoffs.
After taking the Chiefs to the brink of elimination, the Bills are expected to be right there in the thick of things in the AFC.
