Bills, Stevie Johnson Haven't Talked Contract Yet

While the Buffalo Bills discuss a contract extension for star defensive tackle Kyle Williams, they have apparently not yet done the same for their best offensive player. That according to that very player, wide receiver Stevie Johnson.

"I haven't heard anything yet," Johnson told The Howard Simon Show (WGR 550). He later continued: "Hopefully I will be next."

Johnson is now Buffalo's undisputed No. 1 wide receiver after veteran Lee Evans was traded to Baltimore last week. When (not if) the Bills begin talks with Johnson's agents about a new contract, said representation will likely be pointing to deals signed by top receivers Santonio Holmes (five years, $45.25 million, $24 million guaranteed) and Sidney Rice (five years, $41 million, $18.5 million guaranteed) earlier this off-season.

Still, despite being on the final year of a rookie contract that pays him like a seventh-round pick, Johnson understands the team's desire to wrap up a deal with Williams first.

"That is huge right there," Johnson said. "He’s a stud on the defense, so hopefully we do get that contract extension for Kyle - and whatever for me."
