Buffalo Bills' training camp is in full swing, and Friday night marks the first time since last season that the entire team will be setting foot on the turf at New Era Field.

The annual "Return of the Blue and Red" practice is taking place on Friday in Orchard Park. Many Bills players, including Josh Allen, are excited to showcase themselves in front of the Buffalo faithful inside New Era Field for the first time in months.

Allen joined the Bulldog and Sal Capaccio on WGR just before practice on Friday.

Here is some of what the second-year quarterback had to say:

 

Allen on his rookie season:

"That first year is just a whirlwind. I played in a bowl game, then the Senior Bowl, then took part in the NFL Combine with hundreds of meetings in between. I went for weeks living out of a suitcase. I couldn't relax at any point."

 

Allen on the offensive system:

"The stability is extremely beneficial. There's so much verbage, it's nice to know most of it already. Knowing this system, and now knowing what to tell guys, I am another asset for coach Brian Daboll."

 

Allen on personnel changes on offense:

"The offense did change personnel-wise. The flashes were there, but overall we set the foundation for what we wanted to do last year. We're still implementing things that I like."

 

Allen on running the football:

"It's just about taking what the opposing defense gives me. We only called like five designed runs last year; the rest of it was mostly scrambling."

"Looking back at last year, there were plays where I could've taken the runningback outlet for five yards. That will be the biggest difference this year."

 

Allen on throwing the ball out of the stadium tonight:

"We'll see!"

 

Allen on a throwing contest against Chiefs' quarterback Patrick Mahomes:

"If we can get something organized and get a few more quarterbacks involved, then maybe. I think it would be pretty cool."
