No Talks Yet With Johnson
No Talks With Johnson: WGR is reporting that there have been no new contract talks between the Bills and Stevie Johnson. His agent, C.J. Laboy said there has been dialogue since Buddy Nix held his State of the Bills press conference but no contract talks. He said he's not ready to say that Johnson will wait for free agency which starts on March 13th. He knows the Bills can use the franchise tag and said Johnson's heart is in Buffalo so there is still time to get something done to keep Johnson off the market.

They may also still need to add another linebacker coach that was vacated by Dave Wannstedt's promotion to defensive coordinator. They did add an assistant defensive line coach that wasn't on last year's staff. All the comings and goings are on our front office page.
