Josh Allen is eligible for a contract extension – an extension he most certainly deserves – but the clock is ticking to get a deal done.
Allen is still playing on his rookie contract. The Bills also picked up his fifth-year extension, locking him in through the end of the 2022 season. But there’s rumblings Allen and the Bills are trying to work on a second contract before the 2021 season kicks off. Time’s almost up.
Bills GM Brandon Beane will not work on a contract extension with Allen during the season, as he’s previously admitted. So the two sides have about a month to strike a deal on a new contract. Allen isn’t worried about getting a deal done, though. In fact, it sounds like he’s okay if the two sides hold off until next year.
“If it does, great. If it doesn’t, great,” Allen told Adam Schein of SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio, via Pro Football Talk. ” I’m trying to be the best that I can be for this team this year. We’ve got a goal set. Like I said, it’ll work itself out. . . . When it happens, it happens. I’m at peace with it.”

It sounds like Josh Allen is committed to the Buffalo Bills whether or not they come to an agreement on a contract extension before the 2021 season.
The Bills would be wise to work with their franchise quarterback now as opposed to later though. There’s no reason to push this off until 2022.
