DALLAS – Shortly after being selected as the 7th pick in the first round of Thursday’s NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills, Quarterback Josh Allen used FaceTime to connect with team owner Kim Pegula.
“You are my first quarterback visit, said Pegula. “We didn’t need to visit with anybody else.”
“The is the biggest moment of my life,” Allen told Pegula. “I promise I will make you guys proud.”
A Twitter controversy did not disparage the Buffalo Bills from selecting Wyoming Quarterback Josh Allen in the first round.
Yahoo Sports reported the quarterback sent now-deleted tweets racially insensitive Tweets in 2012 and 2013.
The team traded up five spots with Tampa Bay in the order in exchange for Bills No. 12 pick and Buffalo’s two second-round selections this year: 53rd and 56th.
