Bengals RB Jeremy Hill says he isn’t even thinking about a contract extension right now and is instead focused on the upcoming season.
“For me, it’s not even an elephant in the room,” Hill told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “It’s simple enough: it’s what the NFL is. I can’t worry about where I’m going to be next year. I’ve got to focus on where I am this year. Then everything else after that will fall into place whether I stay here or go somewhere else. I’ve got to do what I can to help my team win football games and then everything will fall in line after that. So, I can’t, ‘Oh next year, next year, next year’ and then this year I end up not playing or having the season I want to have. I’m taking care of that first and then everything else will fall in line.”
“Sean and I are trying to build a culture here,” Beane said. “Anquan, as a man on the field and off the field, who he is — ninth all time with over 1,000 catches, this guy is a Hall of Famer in my mind, no doubt — but second to none, this guy was Man of the Year. Teaching guys how to live and run your life, not only in the locker room, on the field, but in the community. He’ll be a great asset to us in Buffalo.”

“He’s close. We’re easing him back into it,” Mularkey said, via Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com. “We’ll see how he feels after what he did [Monday] and hopefully we’ll get him out here [Tuesday].”
Murray added that it’s frustrating to not be out there, but he knows it’s important to ensure he’s 100 percent healthy for the upcoming season.
“It’s obviously frustrating not to be out there with those guys grinding with them,” Murray said. “For me and the team, the best thing to do is to get healthy and make sure this thing is 100-percent healthy.”
