Josh Allen’s racist tweets from HS have surfaced.
Does not bode well for a draftee or an NFL Teammate.
This cut and paste may offend, that is your warning.
Former Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen apologized for some offensive and racist tweets he made in high school.
Allen is projected as a top–five pick in Thursday's draft and told ESPN.com that he he was young and dumb when making the tweets.
The tweets have been deleted from Allen's account, but Yahoo! Sports reports that the tweets were sent when Allen was in high school in 2012 and 2013.
According to Yahoo@ Sports, below are some examples of Allen's tweets.
(Warning: The tweets contain offensive language.)

BS that they release it today. Clearly trying to effect his stock.
He might go from the most overrated (IMO) to the most underrated by the end of the day.
Man can they dig stuff up on the internet....
Funny show on Dan Barriero yesterday....he was talking to a draft expert Marty Wexler III. Marty apparently has NFL clients where they used GPS Tracking in bodies, Chips in Bodies, tested urine after players after they use a urinal, broke into prospects houses, etc. to find out what kind of kids they are.
Well any way Dan starts talking to him and after about 7 mins they hear you have 3 mins remaining and Dan was surprised....turns out Justin Gaard knew it all along---Marty was in prison for something he did w/o permission and they were talking to him in prison.
Here is more from 2007
From what I heard, Marty is a draft guru, writes his own draft guide and it is VERY detailed. He tests for some of the most intriguing stuff. And then he has this list of players that have a 85% chance of "becoming special" and he mentioned AP, Gaines Adams, and a couple of other players being in that group of "destined to be special players."
Some of the stuff he tests for...
If you've played Madden, you know the QB Pocket Pressure drill where they set up a few JUGS machines and fire footballs at 25mph at the QB as he tries to evade them.
He also tests how long a player can hold onto something while being dragged which tests the players' hand, arm, and upper body strength.
He also has this crazy drill where skill players (QBs, RBs, WRs) wear these special gloves that can shock the player when the person controlling the gloves chooses to do so. They start out at minimal milliamps and work their way up to 20milliamps total (which scientists say is the safest maximum amount of voltage). Apparently, Anthony Gonzalez of OSU was the best at this drill, which tests how well the player can hold onto the ball, and apparently Ted Ginn Jr. let go of the ball after the first shock.
There's also a drill where the QB is blindfolded and makes passes based off of instinct and awareness. Quinn did horribly in this category.
He said Quinn is the most overrated player in this draft. He Quinn did poorly for a QB on the test he gives out (similar to Wonderlic).
Also, there's this crazy thing he does where he implants a chip into draft prospects which is like a GPS chip and it monitors where the players go. This way the players can prove that they stay out of trouble. He says that 72% of NFL prospects elect to do this.
Anyway there's a bunch of more stuff I didn't get a chance to hear or forgot so I highly recommend you listen to this, its very interesting...
And I could be wrong on a lot of those things above, they are pulled from my memory while I was listening in my car.
Yeah it was whacky almost like it wasn't real...but when Dan kept asking Marty where he was calling from and Justin didn't tell him until near the end of it----made it seem real to me. Pretty good bit if it isn't real at this time of the year.
