BUFFALO, N.Y. (WHEC) — No Kansas City or Tampa Bay, but yes to Buffalo!

King says Allen now knows what it takes to win, he just has to do it.
"Allen is 25. After playing off-off Broadway as a quarterback for years, now he understands what it takes to win in the big time. Now he’s just got to do it. I’m betting he’s ready."
King also considered the Bills’ COVID-19 dilemma. The Bills currently have one of the lowest vaccination rate in the NFL.
"As for Covid, the Bills have had their issues; I could tell on my visit to camp in August it’s still something that could plague this team, because guys like Beasley won’t back down from their I’m-not-getting-vaxxed stances. They’d better be careful. A positive test by an unvaccinated player on, say, a Friday puts him out for two games. It’s football roulette. I think the Bills can overcome it, but they don’t sell insurance for these kinds of things."
