Sam Darnold, Josh Allen and Kyle Allen riding out quarantine together

Most NFL players have had to figure out new ways to work out given the closure of team facilities, gyms and other gathering places as part of the effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, but three quarterbacks have been able to keep working out with trainer Jordan Palmer.

Bills quarterback Josh Allen and Washington quarterback Kyle Allen rented a place together in Southern California after the Super Bowl and they were joined in workouts with Palmer by Jets quarterback Sam Darnold, who lives a few minutes away. Kyle Allen told Albert Breer of SI.com that they’ve continued those workouts by going to throw at the beach and lift in a garage that’s been turned into a small weight room.

Other than that, the two Allens are holed up with their girlfriends for the rest of each day.

“This is really how we lived anyway,” Kyle Allen said. “It’s just 24/7 now. It’s an interesting time. You talk to some people, and they’ll say the football part of it is similar to the lockout year, we might have nothing until camp. And maybe we’ll look around the league in August, and there’ll be some teams that took advantage of the time, and some teams that didn’t. That’s the most interesting part. What happens to OTAs? Training camp, maybe that’ll only be four weeks.”

Allen found out he was traded from Carolina to Washington this week and doesn’t have a place to live in his new spot, which has left him wondering what he’ll do when the lease on the rented house is up in the coming days. He suggested Darnold’s couch might be his landing spot, which would keep the quarterback quarantine going a little while longer.

  1. I can’t believe my Bills traded up to get Allen, he really is trash.

  2. “Kyle Allen told Albert Breer of SI.com that they’ve continued those workouts by going to throw at the beach but Josh kept missing the ocean.”

    Wide right, you lose again.

  3. Sam Darnold and Josh Allen have losing records against Baker Mayfield. Let that sink for a moment.

  4. 3 interception prone QBs. Hopefully they’re not comparing notes on how to properly read a coverage.

  5. Ah, to be a millionaire in your early twenties and have the two biggest responsibilities in your in life be:

    1. throw a ball better
    2. try not to get sick

    Sounds pretty good to me

  6. 3 interception prone QBs. Hopefully they’re not comparing notes on how to properly read a coverage.

    Josh Allen had 9 interceptions last year in 17 games (including one playoff game). Take out the three interceptions he had in the first NE game, he had 6 interceptions all year. How does this make JA an “interception prone QB”?

    Same thing with Darnold, take away that MNF disaster and his numbers aren’t nearly as bad as people make them out to be. They’ll both be fine, ignore the haters.

  8. Are we talking about the same Josh Allen?
    The only QB in the NFL with ZERO red Zone Interceptions and ZERO 4th quarter interceptions?

    Care to retort?

  9. Sam Darnold and Josh Allen have losing records against Baker Mayfield. Let that sink for a moment.

    Sink as in a basketball through a net in games of one-on-one or horse? If you’re referring to NFL games, you must be saying that in 2018 and/or 2019, the Browns beat the Bills and the Jets.
