    Anything to the rumor that this signing could allow the Bills to trade Lee Evans for a first-day pick, in lieu of letting him walk next year and getting nothing?

      The Bills public relations director didn't confirm or deny this which means it's pretty much inevitable.

      Bryant Johnson is a definite upgrade over Josh Reed and Roscoe Parrish who are better in the slot then they are on the outside.

      He has all the tools to become a pretty solid #2. He's steadily caught about 50 balls and 500 yards with the Cardinals behind Boldin and Fitzgerald. There's no reason he can't up his production to 65 catches, 700 yards and 5 TD's.

      That's all I want from my #2 receiver. Don't forget that the Bills expect to give Marshawn Lynch more opportunities in the passing game and we plan on bringing in a pass threat at TE.

        That rumor came from Chris Mortenson who tends to make things up. Actually profootballcentral.com just confirmed that the Bills are trying to re-sing Lee Evans and they want him in Buffalo.

        Signing Bryant Johnson is to help Lee Evans not replace him.

          "EVANS TRADE RUMOR IS FALSE:

          There has been a lot of speculation that the Buffalo Bills are considering trading starting wide receiver Lee Evans. The speculation is just that, speculation; the Bills are nowhere near even thinking about trading the former Wisconsin star and are in the process of signing him to a multi-year deal according to several members of the Bills organization that I have spoken to."

          There's some info on that...

            Rumor: Bills Reportedly Will Sign WR Bryant Johnson

            The Buffalo Bills have reportedly reached an agreement with free agent receiver Bryant Johnson. Johnson has played three years predominantly as a slot receiver for the Cardinals, frequently starting the game from the third receiver position. His 35 catches in 2003 was the third most receptions for a rookie (his teammate Anquan Boldin had the most receptions for a rookie that year)[1]. Johnson’s career has been hampered by several injuries, but has not appeared in less than 13 games in his three professional seasons. Stay tuned for confirmation on this report.
            And here's some more information on Bryant Johnson...

              No Agreement With WR Johnson: There have been conflicting reports regarding free agent WR Bryant Johnson. A Phoenix radio station and Sirius NFL Radio originally reported the Bills had a tentative agreement with the receiver on a deal. The Bills told WGRZ that there is no truth to those reports. Johnson reportedly landed in Buffalo for his visit late this afternoon. Ben Troupe is now due in tomorrow. He was reportedly expected over the weekend. The Bills may turn to Troupe now that they lost out on Agle Crumpler.

                News channel 4 in Buffalo just announced that the Buffalo Bills have come to terms with Cardinals WR Bryant Johnson. Johnson has played three years predominantly as a slot receiver for the Cardinals, frequently starting the game from the third receiver position. His 35 catches in 2003 was the third most receptions for a rookie (his teammate Anquan Boldin had the most receptions for a rookie that year).

                  I've gotta admit, even though I'm not in love with this move, the Bills have had a really good offseason so far.

                  Who did they end up signing as their GM anyway?

                    We dont have a 'True' GM
                    We have 3 guys who work together.

                    I'm not getting excited though with the news about Johnson. I'm waiting for the Bills to announce it, before I do.

                      I agree very strong off season for the Bills, Bryant Johnson wont be anything special, but it makes Roscoe Parrish a little more dangerous in the slot who should get the ball alot more then he does with his playmaking ability...I felt Wilford would of been better then Johnson, but he is a realiable guy with good hands and thats all you can ask with a young qb...

                      And Im not sure Edwards has the weakest arm in the world, but he doesnt compare to a guy like losman or grossman when it comes to throwing the deep ball to somebody like Evans with his speed...They never even looked for that big play once he stepped in, maybe it was due to his learning curve, but I surely didnt see any huge bombs taking chances downfield with evans speed to stretch the defense.

                        Edwards has under-rated arm strength. I recall one play where he threw a perfect 50-60 yarder to Lee Evans down the sideline. He definitley has the arm strength. Schonert just has to call the right plays to allow us to stretch the field.

                          Trent Edwards connected on a couple of long bombs to Evans but after the Losman era there's a lot more than just throwing it up and hoping your guy comes up with the ball.

                          His long ball is something he can work on. He's already better than Losman and Grossman with accuracy and leading his receivers and he was a true rookie last year.

                            Now, according to WIVB, the Bills HAVE NOT signed Bryant Johnson.
                            Too many conflicting reports

                              I think sometimes teams just like to keep it "unofficial" until they and the player are ready to make an announcement together. Get a press conference going, a jersey ready with his name, all that jazz.

                                Speaking of which, I went to the Bills website and saw that I can now get my Kawika Mitchell jersey. I bet those are selling like hotcakes.
