CONTRACTS SIGNINGS, EXTENSIONS, AND RESTRUCTURINGS
Here is where we will list contract details that we 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 2008 calendar year. 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.

WR Lee Evans - 4 yrs. for $37.25M $18.25M guaranteed.
CB Leodis McKelvin - 5 yrs. worth up to $19.4M. $12.6M guaranteed.
OG Brad Butler - 3 yr. extension worth $8.8M of new money. Base $945,000 (2008); $1M (2009); $1.55M (2010-12).
DT Spencer Johnson- 5 yrs. $17.5M. $6M guaranteed.
LB Kawika Mitchell - 5 yrs. $17.5M. $5M guaranteed.
