That might seem like a daunting task for a rookie but considering the Bills spent a third-round pick in 2019 and cut a Pro Bowl running back, the team seems ready to put their faith in the young running back.
Singletary will look to also do is take some pressure off of Allen who will try to build off his rookie season. The Florida Atlantic running back has displayed great vision, toughness and pass-catching ability to be a valuable weapon for Allen but how much opportunity he gets is all up to his production with limited snaps.
"“He’s being asked to do some different things; they didn’t throw the ball to him a lot at Florida Atlantic,” said Beane to Sai Maiorana of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. “We haven’t played live games, that’s a different speed coming up. We’ve warned all our rookies the preseason is a different speed. Devin is an unproven player, but he did enough and answered enough questions for us. We just felt we could get contributions from Devin. We felt he was ready to roll in some form or fashion for our team.”"
Having Yeldon and Gore will give Singletary some quality mentorship considering he wasn’t a prized first-round pick that is ready for full-time duty. Plus the Bills would be wise to make sure they don’t force Singletary right off the start.
