ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — No one works closer with Josh Allen then Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll — who is pleased with what he's seen so far from the rookie.
"I think Josh is a mature guy who's handled his responsibilities the right way," Daboll said. "He comes in every day, works hard, improves, listens to the veterans, listens to the coaches. If he makes a mistake one day he works really hard to fix it the next day. (He) has the right attitude."
Allen's attitude remained positive even as he runs with the third-team offense through the second week of OTAs. Daboll says there's no plan in place to increase his workload and doesn't feel it's holding back his development.
"He gets enough opportunity to keep on advancing and progressing in the system continue, in terms of scripting him new plays, putting him in different situations," Daboll said. "I think with any young guy that's what you need to do in terms of building him from ground level."
Daboll learned how to better work with young talent in his one season last year as Alabama's offensive coordinator, understanding that he can't put too much on his plate. He's been visibly very hands-on in his coaching of Allen, both with the good and the bad.
"With every player you have that's our job as a coach is to tell them what to do, show them how to do it and really accept no excuses," Daboll said. "Whether it's Josh, AJ, Nate, Kelvin, whatever it is, each player, our job is to go back and see what they do and try and evaluate it and give them one type of correction, whether it's positive or something he can do a little bit better to improve."
Bills finish up OTAs next week.
