Allen — who told the media his elbow “feels really good” after the limited throwing he’s been doing throughout the first phase of voluntary offseason workouts — is already getting the ball rolling with the quarterback room that features Matt Barkley, Kyle Allen and QB coach Joe Brady. The QB crew, along with offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey, have begun their deep dive into the offense and familiar concepts in hopes of finding on-field success next season.
“Eyes are in the right spot, putting the ball where it needs to be on time, on target,” Allen said. “Making sure everyone’s on the same page in terms of route and distance and angle of routes because there are times where we can clean that up as a team and it’s going to better us. And having those talks with Dorsey about concepts that I love that we need to keep working on, and this is the time to do it.”
And as Allen prepares for his sixth year in the NFL, his focus is still on being the best quarterback he can be for the Buffalo Bills. With that in mind, Allen said he’s using the rest of the offseason to find ways to improve and retool his game for 2023.
“Just trying to be the best leader, the best teammate, and the best quarterback that I need to be for this team to win football games,” Allen said. “We need to get over that hump and I understand that, we understand that. You’ve got to look from within sometimes and again, just finding new ways I can get better. Taking care of myself on the field, whether it’s taking hits, protecting the football, not putting the ball into harm’s way.”
