CONTRACTS SIGNINGS, EXTENSIONS, AND RESTRUCTURINGS
Here is a list of contract details we have obtained through various media outlets. It is an approximation since the Bills do not release contract details. We will list all new contracts, restructured deals and extensions that happen in the 2007 off season. Some players may be asked to restructure their contracts which would convert base salaries into signing bonuses to save cap money. This practice usually puts teams in a bad cap situation in future years so it isn't likely this off season since the team is in good cap shape.

RB Marshawn Lynch - 5 yrs. $18.935M. $10.285M guaranteed.
LB Paul Posluszny - 4 yrs. $4.75M. $2.55M guaranteed; $325,000 incentive cluases.
TE Derek Schouman - 4 yrs. $1.72M. SB $55,000. Base $285,000 (2007); $370,000 (2008); $460,000 (2009); $550,000 (2010).
RB Anthony Thomas - 2 yrs. just over $1M.
OG Derrick Dockery - 7 yrs. $49M. $18.5M guaranteed; $13M SB.
OT Langston Walker - 5 yrs. $25M.
OL Jason Whittle - 1 yr. $720,000. $40,000 SB.
CB Jabari Greer - 2 yrs. $1M guaranteed.
DE Chris Kelsay - 4 yrs. $14M guaranteed. $11M in SBs Base $1M (2007); $1.4M (2008); $3M (2009); $3.7M (2010).
K Rian Lindell - 5 yrs. $9.15M. SB $3.5M. Base $750,000 (2007); $1M (2008); $1.09M (2009); $1.36M (2010); $1.45M (2011).
