Josh Allen to enter Bills camp as No. 3 on depth chart
The Bills have tinkered with Josh Allen as a starter, but they’re not ready to commit to the project yet.
Via Joe Buscaglia of WKBW, Bills coach Sean McDermott said Thursday that the first-rounder would open training camp as the third-string quarterback.
The Bills will continue to alternate A.J. McCarron and Nathan Peterman with the first team, and make Allen earn his reps.
Allen got a few reps with the first team in minicamp, and left those players with a positive impression.
But the Bills will enter camp with questions in the middle of their line and a middling set of pass-catchers, so the prudent play might be to let Allen sit until he has a better chance to succeed.
Of the 500 women who auditioned, Wilkins was one of just 43 chosen for the two-month training camp. (In the end, some 36 ladies — including performers from the previous year — make the squad.)
The Edmonton Eskimos added Owens to their negotiation list, according to TSN.
That doesn’t mean Owens is heading to the CFL by any stretch of the imagination, but it does mean that Edmonton could talk to him and see if there’s any interest. Given how long Owens has been talking about wanting to keep playing, maybe he’d consider it.
Owens hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2010 with the Bengals. He briefly played for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League in 2012.
Rehearsals would last between three and six hours. And there is no showing up in a ponytail and sweatpants; cheerleaders are required to come camera-ready, with styled hair and full makeup.
For practices, Wilkins said she was paid $8 an hour. For appearances, she was allegedly paid a flat fee of $100 her first year, $200 her second and $300 her third (pay increases are capped at $500). She says show-group appearances were capped at $250, no matter a member’s tenure.
