“I’ll tell you, this man loves to work,” Allen said, via Ryan Talbot of NYup.com. “He loves to get on the field and run routes and talk to the guys and explain how he’s running routes and explain what works for him to these young cats.”
Allen said the “bad rep” Diggs had in Minnesota was undeserved.
“It was very, very awesome to see just the amount of detail that he puts into his craft, how communicative he was, how willing he was to learn. And he wasn’t there for himself. He was there for the betterment of the team and wanted to hang out with the guys and wanted to learn and get to know the guys and I thought that was pretty special. You hear all these crazy stories in the media and I think he’s had a bad rep where he was at,” Allen said.
