The Redskins are beginning to look a lot like the Carolina Panthers North!
According to the NFL Network, the Panthers have traded Kyle Allen to the Redskins, with Ian Rapoport of NFL Network adding that Carolina acquired a fifth-round draft pick in return.
Allen stepped in as the Panthers’ starting quarterback in Week 3 of this past season after Cam Newton went down with a foot injury. The 24-year-old got off to a strong start, leading Carolina to four straight wins, but after that, Allen began to struggle.
In 13 appearances and 12 starts overall, Allen threw for 3,322 yards, 17 touchdowns and 16 interceptions while completing 62 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 80.
Allen, who played his collegiate football at Texas A&M and Houston, went undrafted in 2018.
The Redskins took their own quarterback in the first round of the draft in 2019, selecting Dwayne Haskins with the 15th overall pick. While Allen hardly seems like a threat to dethrone Haskins, Washington does not seem 100 percent committed to Haskins heading into 2020.
