According to Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550 Sports Radio in Buffalo, the Bills and wide receiver Stevie Johnson still haven’t discussed a possible contract extension.
The Bills have indicated that they would like re-sign Johnson and he’s made it clear that he would like to re-sign with the them.
Back on January 9th, Bills general manager Buddy Nix was asked if he intended on opening up contract talks with Johnson’s agent C.J. Laboy soon.
“There were proposals made during the season. The last one we made their stance was we’d like for Stevie to concentrate on the season, finish out the year and then start the talks at the end of the year. And there has been dialogue since the season was over and they will continue.”
Per Johnson’s agent, there haven’t been any further contract discussions since Nix’s statement during the Bills’ January 9th press conference.
“We did speak to them following Buddy’s press conference, but we have had no contract talks,” Laboy told WGR on Friday.
