The Buffalo Bills are revved up for Rasmus.

The team's new quarterback welcomed Buffalo Sabres No. 1 pick Rasmus Dahlin to town on Twitter.

Josh Allen, picked No. 7 by the Bills in the 2018 NFL Draft, says that the wings are on him when the two get together.

Tweet from @JoshAllenQB: Welcome to Buffalo @rasmusdahlin00! Can���t wait to watch you play, wings on me later this summer. #LetsGoBuffaloIs #SabresMafia a thing? It is now.

Dahlin, who had a large contingent of Sabres fans in Dallas cheering his selection, also got a welcome video from Bills coach Sean McDermott.

Of course, sharing a city and drafting super talented rookies in 2018 aren't the only things that connect the Sabres and Bills. They are both owned by Kim Pegula, who also tweeted her excitement for the arrival of Dahlin.
