It is but this is a great day for the organization from mr. Wilson for our. For our tartar fan base it speaks mayans to the work that party has done. And again goes back to our core philosophy and his party says this draft develop and retain. -- just Steve is another shoe shining example of that you know with.

You know ride -- each other you know -- to say if anyone notions like he'd do in the mud. As far as I got a more he's back there you know so. Best estimate just type team that we had those players as has taken care of each other and always. It's -- open market -- time to go out there and see what we're used. Now that gives you. An offer to -- You know what I mean. Has to be completely out as which you. I mean it every everybody is in this league and they wanna see old was gonna happen registry -- that but. I mean me personally. That would have been cool but I know where I wanted to be you know so wouldn't it -- -- -- he says to go see oh this scene one meal that seamless mean. It doesn't matter like how was -- looking at that if you know -- you -- be in as well going to be. Saw this -- he's -- Your talents. You. And you talk to any other. Players in. Who it is free agency.

You Andra Davis -- more slow like those guys the total was. They they've already told me they have like that that into words things start thinking about you know whether whether you -- -- -- -- is going to be chemistry would all that so. I don't we have the search and already had my Brothers are here to tell me that so. That was that was -- also information today from from them. -- This free time well you know the -- it's gotten his point here you -- -- won't play currently. At all so -- -- every day every day is is this -- I think about it a look at my little brother. Untrue Lewis he he's. He's basically going going -- route that I without taking knows what's gonna happen and in the end but you know I'm reminded of how I got here by. Every time I talked to him you know so. It's it's this amazing businesses a blessing. -- is be to be here right now talking you guys. On his podium you know. Being a member of the Buffalo Bills being in the Buffalo Bills. Since always you know so. -- and I'm reminded our in my myself every every day you know anymore talk a little Brothers to solely -- happens. Keep on working -- or. Immediately. And you know you do -- get it done and we're here for referring more to it doesn't matter what round economy and what your. -- violence permanently or our sales. Just the way you run you know -- your way. Well would it based off of you know -- routes but it is. Every is everywhere you know is -- no matter no matter what you do is close you get it -- beat them as best that's it you know. And best best attitude though that we have you know not just in the receiver -- but. Throughout the team you know we gotta we gotta be our man in and win that battle when they individual battles are sort seem to get the victory you know and them. He's -- he's instilled that it in as in he's he's been doing that since since he got here you know. I think I think I think will be. It seems. That you whether take notice what you know these these coming years you know we have we have a talented group. I was off the last eleven we get to the play -- which we can. I think we can mess -- in about a matchup -- anybody or nothing we can we can be anybody you know so alms to take a lot of focus and work. On the need one -- He's. You get this deal done stay here yeah. -- that war. Well -- -- -- to get the deal done is is a -- -- you know. -- be here in his shows that they have you know support me. Sought you know I want -- do all icann's some assurances to let them on at it and make a mistake you know. So. His and his me me being here -- in them and meet me being here right now -- -- us are the contract is says lot about them you know that the organization -- nudges. Badges you know Steve just you've you've got paid or whatever amount now way you know which -- -- about I want to make sure I make them look good you know it was not him about anything goes. Pessimistic view it -- and others it was a long process and an all time. In a row that were there any of those throughout this. Country. Not me I'll always. -- critical with you know everything I -- you know the organization is CJ was getting things in. I mean I'm every every time you hear me talking -- some so optimistic about being here everybody everyone knows that so. It was just a matter of when is gonna give you know in and you know it as honest as we there. Cecil B Johnson resigns with the bills to press conference on WG cars or things like. You're happy new year tribute that come and play at all in in the contract. -- while Lee who was those are known members and getting things situated you know sense that right. Every everything -- News pages as has happened is trying to get this concert. Didn't. They feel. That. Who fought through a lot of things. That. What -- and trajectory. -- You know I don't have one thing -- Out any army practice every day and he played every week. Which says something about here's toughness and his pride in that think guess a lot of the reason that. His teammates feel -- can do about it even count only meaning to -- -- Former sabre he's -- -- -- Or visit to keep. You -- -- here. Now entering his finances -- didn't. You know I think it's I think it's big in and -- at it. And mr. Wilson's let us -- written. But it's important that you keep PO UKB old -- losing good gas. Every year and we got a lot of mapped for different races. Would play a guesstimate every Sunday and you know you can't keep them all but gee you'd need did make the effort and do everything he can't keep. It will be. Steadier today. -- you Leo that's the -- You know don't believe would go go. And people say that you know we know where -- we won't -- yet but. We're going to go after guys that can help us in May not they were sabres I think we got good gas to go live. And I think David to aid the same thing we got some tout everybody talks about speed on that. That other satellite premium eight speed. I mean we got gas acting -- on it's a matter of keeping them healthy and keep in a moment for me and and then mainly books and another receiver that doesn't mean we will draft. But I do think we got a good group. What's -- what's. When you were -- Considering what what happens -- that challenge that you have to close calls. A little worried about what that child before. It's what you work sir did. You. A lot yet like that's always a concern and I think it was without us I mean if you're not careful use you go replacing -- Debt in May be is a little lesser talent cost you more takes longer eat like a little step back I don't care. Community and you're bringing. He's got to learn the system he's got to be -- -- and ex set you back a little bit yet we were. Obviously I think about it there's a lot that I think about it all the time so that was a big part. -- will not answer that you don't know me to I don't. I don't have to think -- -- good question no -- Few days you know -- It was a it was a time in Indianapolis -- -- these days and things like that related. You know Jim over nor did -- did the basic. Grunt work I mean he he worked and he met with -- -- he talked to him nearly every day and you know -- out of it again -- go back to it. I believe Steve when he said he won't debate here. And then I know we were sincere and we said -- So those things take time that normally comes together and this is normally the outcome that's. If that's a case really were both sides. So -- -- -- I was gonna ask you about the grant Williams this is definitely count that Cuba. I'm not aware of many of the contact but yeah I think today our focuses on is definitely on Steve. And I put out a statement on Friday in them leave the statement words. It. That wraps up press comes one bills drive -- -- largest a quick question on the bounty story but most of the press conference was about. Stevie Johnson. The article I thought -- was gonna ask about that it was about injuries and play. Nobody brought it. Nobody -- but nobody ST right. I miss glad I didn't say I'll -- a message to decide in my head of it of the jamaat I honestly I'm shocked I'm really stunned it did not come up at all. Me too I must say I really thought for sure was gonna come up. But -- as it comes up right now after the one out once again overnight asked more questions elders are. The press comets are that they have a home quickly talk again -- At this moment and you know case Stevie now what about the messages. I brought it up past because it's part of it. -- there was one question. I think it was one question about when the talks were going on was it strictly about numbers contract numbers mean that was the question. Or was it with -- brother things disgusted Stevie said no. It was just about contract. The numbers and everything anyway Stevie -- signs five year deal according to ESPN it's a total value of 36 point 25 million dollars nineteen guaranteed 24 in the first three years. And buddy nix basically said the -- you joined in progress this is about keeping good players here draft the player developed the player and then when he becomes good. Keep them here and get an even better and that he said was a big part -- the deal done that they didn't wanna take a step back if they did not re signed Stevie Johnson. -- Stevie thank just about everybody could thank what you're doing an Oscar de it was. You know that the director the producer my agent the of the writers the make up man and he thanked everybody thank Ralph Wilson thank you thank god for. Everything quote he's put me through good and bad it's molded me into the person I am today agent family friend's wife teammates. Thank the city of buffalo talked about representing you guys. Thanked his mom said look at her son now and talk about taking care of his mom. And he said he -- Representing Jeremy was the you know. One question was you know we get this close to the market he'd be tempted you've gone this -- market opens up next week. You just go find out is there a better offer whose interest it even if there's a part of an ego thing for you to find out if other teams are interested and he said basically. It wouldn't of made sense to go look. Because he didn't wanna go to or else she knew we wanted to be here he wanted to stand buffalo he wanted to stay a bill. So it really would've made any sense to go out on the market because you know it's. I don't know that it's not often you find guys like it's Foster signed with Houston guys don't normally signed this close to the market opening. Well when you come right down to you know I mean and there's there's drops to consider there's of the winning in the loss and the loss and winning and losing about it but. It is tough to like anybody more than. Then Stevie Johnson the guy just comes across -- sole real he's had so many things that so many people wanna hear from there but he didn't say you know. I'm doing them a favor there doing what they're doing me a favor they -- it's easier loyalty and a lot loving to be here -- he says all the right things and I just. Sometimes an athlete will say things -- you don't know it's real or not I don't question any of his motives ever he comes across is one of the most real athletes and I've ever. Ever even talked about. You know to get his quarterback to shape that aside -- head is a good indication of how much Ryan Fitzpatrick thinks that Stevie Johnson Israel. And when they were three you know or whatever when -- when their I don't remember the record this year the point is when they are doing well. That stuff came into the forefront and when they started to lose games we kind of forgot about it but you know the antics that are talked about him part of the reason that I. I hate talking about them is because it takes away from. Well I think he has which is an absolutely exemplary person for off and the root for -- seventh round pick. Team takes a chance on -- he remembers it re signs. You know just full marks the Stevie Johnson always. Since he tweeted and cried after the Pittsburg drop liked him since that day people made fun of because of the -- to god or whatever when he was up there. Just so emotional taking it so personally. I love that and I just I like a lot of things about them and I'm glad he -- for a number of reasons. -- one thing you know get back to the early portion of his press conference. They asked him why -- day. And he said that's where I started I wanted you brought up loyalty said specifically wanted to remain loyal. He said I knew in my heart I wanted to be a bill and you know we talked from time to time. About players leaving. And one -- the go elsewhere and that whatever whatever he's doing -- story here is the guy who said today. I you know Italy -- he's got a good contract but he was a week away from going into the open market. And -- You know some of the receivers won't even make it to Shawn Jackson was tagged is story today that Wes Welker is gonna be tagged by the patriots know pro football weekly did their top 100 free agents in this Stevie the fifth best. Wide receiver about to hit the on restricted market but he said. I wanted to be a bill. So it's it is heart warming for for fans that have seen -- -- sabres for that matter -- over the years the funny guys that I didn't -- -- just. You know let's get it done get an offer -- make it fair and I don't wanna go anywhere. All right. What are we doing battle but it does that but we'll take a but I rejoined -- okay.
