Among the Bills' biggest goals in the offseason was to provide more support around quarterback Josh Allen.
To show his appreciation for the moves early in free agency, Allen sent General Manager Brandon Beane a GIF. Beane has declined to share which GIF it was, saying only that it was "good" and that it was "clean."
"He was appreciative of the moves we were making," Beane told reporters.
The identity of the GIF remained a secret until the first episode of the second season of Bills Embedded, a series that provides inside look at the Bills posted on the team YouTube channel. Four episodes were posted Sunday night.
During the episode titled "Agents of Change," Allen and his girlfriend are shown at a dinner with teammates Micah Hyde, Matt Barkley and Steven Hauschka and their significant others.
In the course of conversation, Barkley asked Allen what he sent, "The little kid with the Jeter hat," Allen said. "Respect. I was pretty happy."
The kid is Derek Jeter's nephew, Jalen, and the hat tip came after the legendary shortstop's final at-beat in 2014.
Allen wasn't just saluting the GM in the early days of free agency. A number of the new Bills said Allen was the first of their new teammates to reach out.
