CAPACCIO: Allen was terrific at Tuesday's OTA session

The Bills quarterback hardly missed all day

Fans are always warned not to get too high or too low while reading reports during OTAs and minicamps, especially when they involve your team’s second-year hopeful franchise quarterback. Tuesday was a day that Bills fans might do just that.

That's because Josh Allen was really good.  

Really, really good.

Sure, I’m the team’s radio sideline reporter and work for the flagship station. So maybe you don’t want to just take my word for it. That’s fine. If that’s the case, here’s a sampling of other media members’ observations while we were all out on the field watching No. 17 sling it around during the fourth of 10 organized team activities:

Here’s a look at a couple of the early throws Allen made. One was a terrific back-shoulder connection to running back Devin Singletary. The next play was a strike down the sideline to running back LeSean McCoy, who couldn’t hold on to it.

It wasn’t a completely perfect day for Allen. He did overthrow an open Ray-Ray McCloud in the back of the end zone and was also picked off by Jordan Poyer at the goal line on another ball intended for McCloud. Those were his first - and maybe only - true misses of the day, and neither happened until the third red zone series of the afternoon.

Don’t get too high and don’t get too low, but if you’re a Bills fan and want a reason to feel good and hopeful about Allen, the quarterback gave you plenty of reason to do that Tuesday.
