Buffalo Bills, Stevie Johnson's Agent To Meet Friday In Indy, Per Report

Here's the latest chapter in the tale of the Buffalo Bills trying to re-sign impending free agent wide receiver Stevie Johnson: WKBW's Jeff Russo reported Wednesday afternoon that the Bills and Johnson's representation are set to meet face-to-face on Friday at the 2012 NFL Combine in Indianapolis.

This had been reported previously, but the exact day of the meeting was not yet known.

The news comes on the heels of a Monday report claiming that the Bills and Johnson are still "far apart" on the terms of a new deal. Clearly, a face-to-face meeting is the best way to create significant movement on that front. Johnson is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 13, meaning that from the time of tomorrow's meeting, the two sides will still have about 18 days to hammer out a deal.

In 2011, Johnson became the first receiver in the history of the franchise to record back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. He's caught 158 passes for 2,077 yards and 17 touchdowns over the last two years.
