Stevie encouraged by play of young WRs

While Stevie Johnson did get out on the practice field for the first time in about a month Tuesday coming off a strained back, the Bills top wideout has had a good deal of time to observe the young additions at receiver to the Bills roster. Here are his thoughts on the influx of youth at the position.

“I like what I’ve seen out there. They say it’s kind of fast right now, but as far as terminology, which is pretty much the hardest part, they say they’ve got it down,” said Johnson. “So now it’s just about going out there and playing and they’ve made plays and there are some that have been left out there, but overall I like what I’ve seen.”

Eight of the 11 receivers currently on Buffalo’s roster are 24-years old or younger. Only Johnson (26), Brad Smith (29) and Dorin Dickerson (25) are over 24 years of age.
