    good move by Buffalo. I'm surprised they dropped the $$. Question still is, how much $$ did they pay him?

    This team is definitely on the rise.

    Pretty good price...

    @AdamSchefter
    Stevie Johnson signed a five-year, $36.25 million deal that includes $19.5 million gtd and over $24 million in deal's first three years.

    What Holmes' contract should look like.

    Stevie Johnson's contract is painful because it clearly demonstrates just how vastly overpaid Holmes is. At the same price, I'd take Johnson over Holmes in a heartbeat. Holmes being near double Johnson is just too painful too fathom.

    Thanks Tanny. The Holmes contract will be remembered as one of your worst moves as GM.

    Good receiver but a total knucklehead.

    +1

    Steve Johnson >>>>>> Santonio

    Steve Johnson is bigger, stronger, more physical, faster than Holmes and while he has a rep for being a headcase I bet he isn't half the turd Santonio Holmes is in person.

    [QUOTE]According to the Union-Tribune San Diego, "it is believed" that the Bills are interested in free agent Vincent Jackson even after Monday's re-signing of Stevie Johnson.
    The Bills appear to be going all-in on Ryan Fitzpatrick, intending to surround him with big-time playmakers and give him the best chance to succeed. The Bills have plenty of cap room for a run at Jackson despite the Johnson deal. Jackson's preference, of course, is to stay in San Diego. But the Bills, and likely the Bears, will push hard for V-Jax if he's still unsigned by March 13.[/QUOTE]

    That doesn't make me happy. Not one bit.

    Definitely not faster, but I agree with the rest :yes:

    Another case of Rex stroking off his players until they get overpaid, with his constant blathering about "Tone time" and how "Santonio gets that look in his eye and he's the best 4th quarter receiver in the history of the game" blah blah blah.

    There is really no reason for Holmes to be making that much more than Johnson, a player who has drastically outperformed him (minus a couple of painful drops) over the past two seasons.

    This year it will be Rex talking about how Shonn Greene is a cross between a tank and a bowling ball with ginsu knives. I'm surprised he hasn't already told Pouha he never thought he'd see a NT that was a more dominant player than Kris Jenkins.

    LOL. Stevie Johnson is a side-show.

    Bills fell in love with that one game he had against Revis which was complete smoke and mirrors. They overpaid big time.

    Johnson will never do that to Revis again b.c Revis will not play off of him like that anymore.

    people need to stop, Stevie Johnson is not Calvin Johnson he's a #1 WR but don't forget all the big passes he's dropped including a big one against us this season. Do I agree that Holmes is overpaid? Yes, but until I see more he's a better, more reliable WR than Stevie Johnson at this point. I would love to see this board after Stevie's first big drop that costs us a game.
