We mentioned earlier Thursday that the majority of teams take their time working on contracts for their impending free agents.
Most of the work is done after the Combine, but there are exceptions. Like the Bills and Stevie Johnson.
Rodney McKissic of the Buffalo News reports that the Bills and Johnson have exchanged contract proposals over the last week. They have a meeting schedule at the Combine to continue the conversation.
This is a strong sign that progress is being made and the Bills view Johnson as a priority. If they keep up this pace, they won’t have to use the franchise tag to retain him.
