NFL: Washington Redskins at Carolina Panthers Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

New Redskins QB Kyle Allen spoke to local reporters today. He has been quarantined in California during to the coronavirus pandemic. He has been working out with Jets QB Sam Darnold, and is experiencing the same cabin fever other people have felt during this lockdown. Allen was surprised he was traded by the Panthers, but was happy to reunite with Scott Turner and Ron Rivera in Washington. His familiarity with Turner’s system will be a big plus coming into the season, especially if the offseason is shortened or eliminated completely. He fully expects to compete with Dwayne Haskns Jr. for the Redskins starting job. He was also high on the Redskins young wide receivers.
