The Bills continue to make progress in contract negotiations with DT Kyle Williams and likely will approach WR Stevie Johnson about an extension soon, according to league sources.
Williams would garner his third new deal in the past five years, and he’s in line for a new payday despite having two years left on his current contract. He has become one of the NFL’s premier interior linemen, and a deal could be finalized as soon as this week.
Williams has been a starter since his rookie season in 2006, when the Bills drafted him in the fifth round out of LSU.
Johnson is coming off a major breakout season in which he finished with 82 receptions for 1,073 yards and 10 TDs and is one of the few weapons on Buffalo’s transitioning offense.
