VIDEO: Keenan Allen Trolls Russell Wilson With Training Camp Trash Talk
The AFC West turned into an arm's race this offseason with all four teams adding big names via free agency and trade. Perhaps none bigger than the Denver Broncos' acquisition of quarterback Russell Wilson.
With the ante officially upped, the rivalry between these four squads, both on and off the field, will pick up in intensity. That's just what happens when all four teams are a threat to win the Super Bowl.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is one of the longest-tenured players in the AFC West, having spent the first nine years of his career with the Bolts. He fully understands the impact of these rivalries, and had a little fun with this in a recent training camp practice, hilariously trolling Wilson and the Broncos.
Check out the video below.
"Let's ride" has become a moniker and theme for Wilson and the Broncos, and Allen had plenty of fun with it. He was caught on video, mic'd up, saying the phrase about 10 times to various teammates on the field with a little chuckle at the end of both.
Allen clearly thinks the whole "Let's ride" theme is a bit corny and had some fun with it. After all, Wilson has long been criticized as one of the "cornier" players in the NFL.
It's all fun and games, for now, but the Broncos and Chargers will be battling it out to dethrone Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs from AFC West supremacy. Kansas City has won the division for six years running.
On the betting front, the Chiefs enter the year as slim +155 favorites to make that seven consecutive seasons, according to NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook. The Chargers rank second at +240 with the Broncos on their heels at +260 odds.
