Orchard Park ( Three games left for the Buffalo Bills but wide receiver Stevie Johnson is thinking about the future. His future. Johnson becomes a free agent after this season but made it clear once again on Wednesday he hopes to continue his career with the Bills.
"I want to be here. Period.", said Johnson on Wednesday.

But Johnson, who leads the Bills in receiving with 63 catches for 790 yards and 6 touchdowns, says that he has not had any recent talks with the Bills about a new contract. The two sides were discussing a deal earlier in the year and Johnson admits he was upset when the two sides couldn't get it done. "At first yeah. That was months ago, but now it is what it is.", said Johnson. "It's a business. We'll see what they are doing. They have plans upstairs, maybe make some moves and then bring me back later on. We'll have to see how it plays out", continued Johnson.

Johnson says he would be willing to talk about a contract if "everything is right", but is content with playing the final three games and seeing what happens. He has no plans to approach the Bills. "We good. We're just going to let it ride out and see what happens at the end of the season".
