Much has been made over the past several days about the fact that the Buffalo Bills are meeting with the agent for impending free agent wide receiver Stevie Johnson today at the 2012 NFL Combine in Indianapolis. GM Buddy Nix would like you, Bills fans, to know that Johnson is one of only five free agents with which the team will be attempting to make negotiation headway with this weekend.

Nix told reporters Friday that the Bills will also be meeting with the agents for tight end Scott Chandler, offensive tackle Demetrius Bell, linebacker Kirk Morrison and safety Bryan Scott in Indianapolis.

That makes a total of five players that the Bills are attempting to re-sign - and that's just the list they've disclosed. None of the five are particularly surprising; with the exception of Morrison - who may very well be a starting linebacker next year if he's retained - all of Johnson, Chandler, Bell and Scott had significant roles with the team a year ago.

Clearly, Johnson is the priority right now for Bills fans, but the organization is apparently busy trying to retain many more players than simply the team's most popular figure.
