The Buffalo Bills are committed to Josh Allen and Allen to Buffalo, and now it just seems a matter of time before the two sides come together to formalize it.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane opened up this week about the negotiations on a contract extension, which has been a priority of the team since Allen’s breakout season in year three that saw him take down a number of franchise records and lead the team to the doorstep of the Super Bowl. Beane revealed this week just when the process could play out and gave some hope for the steps still to come.

Beane has said for weeks that the Bills will likely sit down with Allen and his representation sometime after the NFL Draft is completed to start work on a contract extension. Beane spoke to reporters this week, sticking to the same timeline but noting that the team has already been in contact with Allen about a new deal.

“Josh and I have spoken and I’ve also had one conversation with one of his representatives that we’re just going to get through the draft and then when we get to later spring, maybe summer — there’s no rush. But we’ll have some kind of conversation,” Beane said, via NBC Sports’ Pro Football Talk. “And, listen, we would love to get Josh extended — no doubt. But it’s going to be a number that works for him and works for us, and that’s been my conversation with them. And they know the same.”

Locking down Allen for the long term rose to the top of the team’s priorities after his breakout third season. Allen led one of the league’s top passing attacks, racking up 4,544 yards with 37 passing touchdowns and adding another 8 rushing touchdowns. Allen would finish second in the MVP voting, cementing the Bills as a top AFC contender.
