The Buffalo Bills still have more than a month to negotiate a new deal with top receiver Stevie Johnson, but he’s not going to be blind to the free agent process.
Appearing on the Jim Rome show at radio row at the Super Bowl Friday in Indianapolis Johnson said Buffalo is still where he wants to be, but should he make it to the free agent market come March 13th he would listen to willing suitors.
“I’m going to have all my options open,” said Johnson in such a situation. ”This is my first time ever being in a situation like this. I’ve heard from other players that have been in this situation and there are different ways of going about it. But at the end of the day I’m going to keep my options open with anybody. I still have nothing but love for Buffalo and I’m hoping we can connect on something.”
When asked by Rome if he thinks he’ll get a deal done with the Bills Johnson wasn’t sure.
“I don’t know yes and no,” he said. ”I can’t speak to it. I’m hoping they will, but I don’t know. I would think it would’ve already been done so that’s what kind of gets me.”
