Could Kyle Allen be Carolina's Dak Prescott? Why he's the ultimate bargain

Kyle Allen has not, historically, been the guy who gets the job.

Sure, five years ago he was a red-hot quarterback recruit out of Scottsdale, Arizona, who signed to play at Texas A&M and looked to have it all set up in front of him. But from that point, it has not been the smoothest of rides. Let's recap:

Allen lost a competition for the Aggies' starting job to Kenny Hill at the start of 2014, got the job back later that season, opened the 2015 season as the starter but lost the job to Kyler Murray, transferred to Houston, sat out 2016, opened the 2017 season as Houston's starter, lost the job to Kyle Postma, went undrafted in 2018 and got cut from two different practice squads -- the Panthers' and the Jets' -- before landing back on the Panthers' practice squad a little over one year ago.
