Re-Assessing Looming Buffalo Bills Contract Situations

When the Buffalo Bills started the season 3-0 and upset New England, fans of the team were eager to see the team re-sign three of its biggest offensive stars: quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, running back Fred Jackson and receiver Stevie Johnson. Since then, however, the Bills have gone 1-2, and we're curious to see if anyone's opinions have changed on that front.

Fitzpatrick is well on his way to a career year in the final year of his deal. He's completing 66.3 percent of his passes and has thrown for 1,477 yards - nearly half of his 2010 total - with 12 touchdowns and six interceptions. Fitzpatrick is currently the league's seventh-highest rated quarterback.

Jackson has been nothing short of phenomenal. He is currently the NFL's second-leading rusher with 601 yards at a career-high 5.7 yards per carry. He's also set a career high with six rushing touchdowns in six games, and is currently the Bills' third-leading receiver with 24 receptions for 279 yards. He is putting up MVP-type numbers.

Johnson has lived up to the hype as a true No. 1 receiver this year, hauling in 33 passes for 382 yards and four touchdowns through six games this year. He's well on his way to at least equaling his 2010 numbers, and could surpass them.

What do you think, Bills fans? If you could pick just one of these players to get a bye-week contract extension, which would it be and why?
