Web Rumblings: Buffalo Bills News, 3/7

DT Williams out of the pool -
"I went back and saw my doctor in Charlotte two weeks ago and he cleared me," Williams told "I’ve been running in a pool and other different stuff. Now I’m allowed to do some dry land jogging."

Possible Bills Targets: WR Vincent Jackson - WGR 550
"Jackson and the Bills make a lot of sense, but the financial aspect of it all is the most concerning. The Bills have repeatedly said they will be aggressive, but aggressive enough to have two receivers making on average somewhere above $17 million per season? Only time will tell."

Bills, Nix deserve credit for getting Stevie done now - Wellsville Daily Reporter
"It’s been rare when the Bills deserved praise for their work in the front office, but this is certainly one of those times. With Fitzpatrick and Johnson back in the fold together, perhaps it’s a sign of a new, more aggressive, Buffalo Bills’ front office."

The importance of Buffalo re-signing Steve Johnson | National Football Post
"The point I’m trying to make is it’s the current Buffalo offense that has made Johnson a star and it’s the Buffalo offense that will keep Johnson a star. If he were to go somewhere else things may not be the same…he may be just an average player, if that."

Fitzpatrick holds up his end of deal with WR Johnson - AFC East Daily
"If (you) get a Mohawk mullet with the beard and a design on the left sign I'll sign TODAY!" Johnson texted Fitzpatrick Friday. "If you don't think about everyone in the billsmafia you'll be letting down... The ball is in your court! Don't be selfish." - Free-agent scouting report: Bills OLT Demetrius Bell
"Demetrius Bell looked good early in 2011 but couldn't stay healthy. Bills GM Buddy Nix said the team will try to re-sign him, but he may have to compete to start."

Re-signing Stevie is a first step, but it shouldn't be the last | Buffalo Wins
Joe Pinzone thinks the Bills owe fans not just the Stevie Johnson signing but more.

Buffalo Bills, Stevie Johnson happy with new contract | Democrat and Chronicle
"I don’t understand how anyone can minimize Bounty-gate. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is trying to make NFL football safer to play. How can that be bad? What’s wrong with playing hard-hitting football within the rules? The NFL is dangerous enough without malicious hits for bonus money."

Donahoe disputes Bountygate - The Buffalo News
"I consistently sat in on team meetings, defensive meetings and special teams meetings," Donahoe said by phone from his Pittsburgh-area home. "I never heard any discussion of any of that. Gregg was a model employee. We didn't win enough games, and that's as much my fault as his fault. But there really were never any issues with Gregg on how he handled the players or what he said to the players."

The Re-Invention of a Blog | Three Point Stance | Democrat and Chronicle
"By bringing back their No. 1 wide receiver for what seems to be a reasonable price – five years, $36.25 million, with $19.5 million guaranteed – the Bills have kept one of their young, promising players, and they have also avoided creating another gaping hole on their roster. Good. Now it’s time for Johnson to live up to the contract, play like a true No. 1, stop being immature with all the stupid celebrating, and become a team leader. That shouldn’t be asking too much of a guy going into his fifth season in the league."
