Details Of Stevie Johnson's New Contract With Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills and pending free agent wide receiver Stevie Johnson agreed to a new five-year contract on Monday morning, allowing the Bills to avoid placing the franchise tag on the talented, young wide receiver. Details of Johnson's contract have now emerged from Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Johnson's deal isn't massive, but it should set the free agency market going forward. The deal for Johnson is front loaded, as to not strap the Bills against the salary cap in the later ends of the deals if Johnson's play falls off. Johnson has led the Bills in receptions and receiving yards the past two seasons, notching back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons.
