“I’m Shaking Right Now” – Josh Allen

Share This Post

One of the greatest of all time, Jim Kelly left the field with a potential NFL great in Josh Allen after the first day of rookie minicamp was over.

Josh Allen, the 7th overall selection in the 2018 draft told reports on Friday he was ‘Shaking’ as he met the legend of Jim Kelly.

“He’s the greatest quarterback to play the game, and obviously the greatest quarterback in Buffalo history,” JoshAllen said.

“That’s where I want to be. That’s eventually [the goal of] my career, to be regarded in the city of Buffalo like a Jim Kelly. I think that every quarterback who plays here wants to be in the same sentence as him, just because of what he is and what he holds to the city. For him to come out here is an awesome experience.”

Josh Allen gets emotional

 

Allen and Kelly later entered the locker room to continue their conversation out of the media spotlight.

“He said how to embrace the city of Buffalo,” Allen said. “He said a few more things — I’ll keep those behind closed doors — but I’m still shaking from meeting him. He’s a special man.”

Buffalo traded their number 12 overall and a further two second-round picks to make sure they secured Josh Allen. In doing so he became the highest ever QB selection made by the Bills. Overtaking Jim Kelly of all people who was the number 14th pick in 1983.

Respectfully, Kelly declined to speak with the media whilst he recovers from his aforementioned surgery which took place in March.

“For him to come out and show support and show everybody that he’s doing well, speaks volumes,” Allen said. “That’s a tough guy right there to [go through] what he’s been through and come out and still be himself”.

“He’s going to hopefully be a mentor to me. and I’m going to take everything that he says very heavily, just because of what he’s done on the field and what he’s done for the city of Buffalo. For a quarterback in Buffalo, it’s a dream come true to meet a guy like him.”
