Buffalo Bills Draft Wyoming QB Josh Allen

Buffalo Bills Draft Wyoming QB Josh Allen

A handful of deleted tweets of a racially insensitive nature surfaced on Wednesday, with Allen, expected to be one of the first quarterbacks off the board in Dallas on Thursday, admitting he had sent them.

The Buffalo Bills acquired the seventh overall pick from the Tampa Bay Bucaneers and drafted Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen.

Just hours before National Football League teams make their selections for the 2018 draft in Dallas, Allen scrambled to apologise for the posts, saying he was "young and dumb" when he wrote them in 2012-2013, according to ESPN. "At the time, I obviously didn't know how harmful it was and now has become".

The Bills were able to save their second first round pick-number 22 overall-and can still add to their roster tonight.

A cold start Wednesday morning, then a warmer afternoon, plenty of sunshine
But tomorrow we struggle to get back to 60 with gusty winds, while Friday highs look to stall solidly in the 50s. Sunny skies will roam throughout Delmarva on Monday as temperatures climb into the upper 50s to lower 60s.


After a series of offensive tweets from Josh Allen's past resurfaced just before the draft, Adam Schefter suggested that the timing may have been intentional. "I will set the record straight for any team, any teammate, the media, and I think once they meet me and they're around me, see how I act and how I think, that it's not going to be a problem at all". I don't want that to be the impression of who I am, because that is not me.

Cleveland also holds the No. 4 overall pick of the draft by virtue of a trade with the Houston Texans a year ago.

"It sucks. My family is hurting". He follows Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma) who was taken by the Cleveland Browns 1st overall while Sam Darnold (USC) was taken by the New York Jets 3rd overall. Video of Tunsil appearing to smoke marijuana through a gas mask emerged on draft day two years ago, bumping him down the order.
