  • Did he? In 11 games Casey threw for 2586 yards 57% and 13 tds to 14 ints and was benched for his brother at one point.

    Austin in 8 games was 1427 yards 56% with 10 tds to 5 ints.

    Casey had a better final game.

    Scoteboard?

    Bucs rookie QB Austin Allen, shown with RB Ronald Jones, got the second-largest guaranteed money among the Bucs' undrafted rookies.(MONICA HERNDON | Times)

    The Bucs have had great success in finding talent in undrafted rookies in recent years, and they paid out more than $250,000 in guaranteed money to undrafted rookies this year, hoping to continue the trend.

    The biggest bonus, and among the largest for any undrafted rookie in the league this year, was $105,000 to Northwestern safety Godwin Igwebuike, who got a $20,000 signing bonus and $85,000 of base salary guaranteed. That could cover most of the season on practice squad, even if he didn't make the team's initial 53-man roster.

    — QB Austin Allen of Arkansas, who will go to training camp as the Bucs' No. 4 quarterback behind three returning veterans, got a combined $50,000 to sign with Tampa Bay. Allen got a $15,000 signing bonus and $35,000 in base salary guaranteed.

    Yep. Maybe they can keep the gorillas out of his grill long enough for him to sharpen some skills.

  • $35,000 will not be enough for him to live on in the Tampa Bay area, especially when he is getting the snot knocked out of him as the dummy bag for the starting defense.

    1. Did you miss the $50,000 figure? Did you also miss the word "base" in "base salary?"
    2. Do you really think scout team QBs in today's NFL are just cannon fodder and actually take hits from the 1st team defense?
    3. Per NFL rules, for the 2017 season, practice squad players could make no less than $7,200 per week, which equates to $122,400 for the season. So if he makes the practice squad, I'm sure he'll have enough to live on in the Tampa Bay area.

    Whole lotta "sheesh" in your post.

    The $50K was the $35K annual salary + the one time signing bonus of $15,000. So I did not miss anything. As 4th team QB, he'll be a perennial scout teamer until he decides to stop trying to make the NFL field.

    He'll also be making at least $122k to be around football and, unlike what you said, not getting teed off on by the starting defense.

    "Hey Austin, stick around, hang around an NFL team and learn from NFL talent, run the scout team offense while still working out with the team, learning the offense, playing in some preseason, and have an outside shot at making a few gameday rosters. We won't let you get beat up while you run the scout team, and we'll pay you at least $122k a season to do all that."

    Not a bad gig if you ask me.

    It's a 50K check to try out for the team. If he actually makes the squad or practice squad, his contract is subject to the same rookie wage scale as all rookies. So if Allen isn't on the practice squad, he'll be guaranteed roughly 570K/year and as RyanMallets(Massive)Ego pointed out, he's dude 123K/year there.

    So it's a pretty good deal. Make the team and you're set. Don't make the team and you got paid 50K to try out.

    I think it's funny that you're begrudging a kid for trying to make an NFL squad. Could you even walk onto a football field without losing your breath?

    You use a lot of different terms: team, squad, practice squad. I do not think you are sure what you are talking about.

  • (Regardless of what happens, Austin Allen got 1/5 of the Bucs' UDFA signing money, 2nd highest in that category on the current team.  There were originally two other quarterbacks on Tampa Bay's UDFA list, one from the MAC and Riley Ferguson from Memphis, who had gaudier stats and a better won/loss record than AA ended up with as an Arkansas starter.  Given that Ferguson graduated summa cum laude and #1 in his UM December graduating class I wouldn't think character was an issue, but neither he nor the MAC guy are in the Bucs' camp anymore. Someone speculated that given Paxton Lynch's first year performance in "the league" that the American Athletic Conference is seen as a far different barometer for NFL readiness than America's toughest Division I conference the SEC West.  AA's already won some small battles others mightn't have given him a chance on...landing even on a practice squad will be tough but the TB QB coach says young Mr. Allen has the intelligence and the ability to run a pro offense, and just needs more time to learn.  We'll see, but more power to him already.)
  • #114 by SooieGeneris on 30 May 2018
  • Only a very small percentage of players in CFB make it as far as AA already has, but don't let that destroy the Hogville expert narrative that he and his older brother "suck" and only started due to their last name.

    If only every CFB staff in America had not been involved in a "deep state" conspiracy to keep poor Rafe Peavey down, he would have been the surefire #1 pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

    As to the words quoted above, anyone who uses either of the terms in quote automatically gets 30 IQ points deducted...

    My answer to the question that began this thread was "no way" back in the fall during the season. I was right.

    This thread has now devolved into how much income he will get if he makes the practice squad as an undrafted free agent. Typical.

  • Austin Allen's nickname (given to him by "the Rookie Scouting Portfolio"): "The scorpion"

    Quote

    I’m not an expert on animal fables but one fable that has always stuck with me is The Scorpion and the Frog.  Essentially a scorpion asks a frog to take him across a river. The frog is doesn’t want to because he fears the scorpion will sting him. The scorpion promises he won’t. The frog agrees to give him a ride to the other side however the scorpion stings the frog halfway across the river killing them both.

    Austin Allen of the University of Arkansas is the scorpion. Specifically, Allen is rather destructive to a defense when he can set up his passing game with run plays and play action. The flip side of that is that the defense is the frog. Allen’s game outside of play-action is pedestrian. A defense that can take away his penchant for finding voids in coverage off of play-action can go a long way in neutralizing a looming threat.

  • #137 by SooieGeneris on 21 Jun 2018
  • Yes, AA might get to be the 3rd QB for an NFL team for at least 3 games. The Hogville experts may not be impressed, but how many guys who have played CFB ever do that? The pct. is very small.

    If he gets bumped down to the practice squad when Winston comes back, that's still something to tell future grandkids.. Ryan Fitzpatrick may have grandkids now..

    The thing that caught my eye though all this back and forth.  1 AA made an NFL team in some fashion which already accomplishes more then a lot do in their careers. 
    2 the amount he would make just being in the team. I am too lazy to look it up but it seems like over 100K. Prolly twice as much a year as half the people in this thread makes. 
    3 The idiots searching for a way to pooh poo anything a former razorback does all the whil proclaiming to be a fan.  (looking at you HiM and Alboringland.
