When Johnson last visited Lexington, he said he was hoping to stay up north where he was given a chance to succeed, but the Bills needed to come in with a strong offer to keep him.
Buffalo put together a 5-year deal worth roughly $36 million. Close to $19 million of that is guaranteed cash.
That makes Johnson happy, but so does the situation he sees with the team. In Johnson’s eyes, the Bills are much like the Cats from college and he wants to be a part of building a dynasty, not joining one.
