NFL Notes: 49ers, Bills, Chargers, Colts




Bills QB Tyrod Taylor said Wednesday that he isn’t focused on his future with the team at this point in time.

“I don’t focus on things that I can’t control, and I’m going to continue to be that way,” Taylor said, via Pro Football Talk. “All I can control right now is my preparation, my focus, my work ethic to putting it all in for this week. It’s a one-game season right now, and that’s for everyone. I can’t allow distractions or thinking too far ahead.

Taylor’s status with the Bills is something to watch as free agency draws closer, given that he’s owed $6 million on the third day of the 2018 league year.


Chargers GM Tom Telesco told Fernando Ramirez of NBC7 San Diego that he isn’t sure what will happen in regards to TE Antonio Gates and his future with the team right now.

We’ll probably let some time go a little bit after the season. I’ll sit down with Antonio and just kind of talk to him and see what his thoughts are, what he’s thinking and see where our thoughts are and what we’re thinking,” Telesco said, via Pro Football Talk. “I don’t have an answer for that right now. Honestly, he is one of the greatest Chargers of all time and to see a Hall of Famer this year really accept a secondary role, you don’t see that very often and see mentoring our young players on the practice field and still playing at a really good level. We saw that when we’ve got two weeks to go in the season where we have to win two more games and we really need him, and he steps up and plays at the same level as he had before. He’s a special, special guy.
