Brandon Beane’s Quote on Josh Allen Gives Buffalo Goosebumps
The only person who is more popular in Buffalo right now, than Bills general manager Brandon Beane, is his quarterback, Josh Allen.
Allen was the 20-plus year answer for the Bills franchise at quarterback. His 2018 rookie season featured plenty of ups and downs. The 2019 season saw considerable improvement and a Bills playoff berth.
2020 and 2021 were on another level entirely. Allen has developed into one of the NFL's two or three best quarterbacks and his performances in the two playoff games in January was the stuff of legends.
Beane was a guest on the Pat McAfee show, and among the topics that McAfee brought up was whether or not Beane wanted to trade Josh to the Indianapolis Colts (McAfee's former team).
Beane laughed and said that he would trade himself, before he traded Josh Allen.
Beane seems to hit all the right buttons as a general manager. When he interviews, he doesn't give you everything, obviously, but he gives you a bit more than other GM's and has some fun with the media. It comes off as genuine.
He's also great putting together a roster. The Bills have been one of the best teams in the NFL over the past three seasons, because Beane and company know what kind of players they're looking for -- whether it's in free agency or the draft.
His comments on Josh Allen show Josh is not going anywhere and will likely retire a Buffalo Bill.
