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 2009 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.

RB Fred Jackson - 4 yrs. $7.5M. SB $1.1M. Roster Bonus $650,000 (2009). Workout Bonus $50,000 ea. yr. Base $500,000 (2009); $1.195M (2010); $1.625M (2011); $1.830M (2012).
DT Marcus Stroud - 4 yrs. $28M. $12M Guaranteed. (2 yrs. restructured; 2 year extension).
WR Justin Jenkins - 2 yrs. $1.185M. Base $535,000 (2009); $650,000 (2010).
QB Ryan Fitzpatrick - 3 yrs. $6.9M. Base $1.8M (2009); $2.3M (2010); $2.8M (2011).
C Geoff Hangartner - 4 yrs. $9.6M. Base $1.9M (2009); $2.35M (2010); $2.55M (2011); $2.8M (2012).
