“The inaccuracy issue,” Allen said. “Going back to college having a 56-percent completion percentage. Obviously, it’s not great. But I think that it’s a little blown out of proportion. I do think that I’m accurate. Jordan Palmer’s helped me out a lot throughout this process with getting my feet right. Once we did that [I’m] throwing the ball a little easier. The ball’s coming out and where it’s supposed to be.”
As for why his completion percentage was so slow, Allen pointed to his poor footwork.
“I think if you look at the film at the times that I did miss, my feet were jacked,” Allen said. “Going back to our offensive system I was asked to do a lot of things within our system. Threw the ball downfield a lot. I am the one to admit that I didn’t put the ball where it needed to be all the time. But, you know, given the circumstances that we had in Wyoming, we won two back-to-back eight-win seasons. It was a place where we ended up winning football games. I think that I helped out in that manner putting the team in the best position to win football games.”

- Rich Cimini of ESPN writes that the Jets appear to prefer Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield to UCLA QB Josh Rosen.
- In fact, some insiders who have spoken with Cimini also believe the Jets have narrowed their choices to Mayfield and Rosen, assuming USC’s Sam Darnold is off the board.
- The Jets announced that they’ve exercised their fifth-year option on DL Leonard Williams. However, Cimini points out that it remains to be seen whether he’ll be classified as a defensive end or defensive tackle, which happens to be a fairly significant difference — $14.2 million (defensive end), $11.4 million (defensive tackle).
