NFL Notes: Bills, Colts, Seahawks

Bills

Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, citing a high-ranking NFL source, reports that the NFL believes that Bills owners Terry and Kim Pegula are doing the right thing by taking their time rather than commit to a move from New Era Field.

“They want the team to have some success before asking for things,” Carucci’s source said.

As of now, the Pegulas are reportedly still in the early stages of the process of establishing themselves as owners of the Bills and fully understanding the dynamics with the team’s relationship with the community.

Both the Chargers and Raiders, who had two of the worst stadium situations in the NFL, are expected to have new stadiums to move into in the coming years, which leaves the Bills as having, arguably, the worst stadium situation in the NFL.

Colts

Colts new GM Chris Ballard mentioned that he felt it was important to reward TE Jack Doyle with a three-year contract extension after he earned it with hard work.

“Jack Doyle was an important guy,” Ballard said, via Colts.com. “He stood for everything we want to stand for. He worked. He earned his way. And had a really good season last year.

“I thought that deserved to be rewarded. And that’s what I want our players to understand. When you do the right things and you produce, you’re going to get rewarded for it.”

Ballard explained that their defense was older they wanted to bring in some players that were in the prime of their career.

“Defensively, we had some work to do,” Ballard said. “The roster was a little bit older. It happens. We wanted to get younger.

“So we’ve targeted players that we felt were good fits in the defense, that were still in the prime of their career with the arrow going up.
