Most know by now that Stevie Johnson took in the Kentucky-Vanderbilt game as his alma mater last weekend and expressed optimism that something would get done with the Bills in a “week or so.” Here are a couple of more comments from him.
Courtesy of the Kentucky Advocate Messenger, Johnson commented on his thrill of getting an ovation from the Wildcats fans after he was introduced at midcourt during halftime of the game. He also addressed his controversial touchdown celebrations provided he re-signs with the Bills, which he reiterated are a thing of the past.
“I was already planning on making a change as far as the type of mentality I have on and off the field,” Johnson said. “I have put in time with my quarterback. I know my quarterback will be there for the long run. If I sign a long-term deal, I can do all I can to build up the organization. I am going to change and become a better player and person around the (team) facility.”
Johnson also said that money won’t change him knowing his next contract will be significantly larger than his rookie deal.
“I am not going to relax because of the money,” he said. “My family will be good. The main thing is to take care of my family. I have a lot of couins, aunties, mom and dad. I want to make sure they are all taken care of and with the new contract that happens and then I can just focus on my craft and getting to a Super Bowl. The only change with the contract will be for the good.”
