disappointment news: a key player for bills has just admitted that he made an embarrassing mistake for selecting bills over his…

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Another week, another big-time extension for the Buffalo Bills with the team signing nickel corner  through the 2027 season. The deal tops that of Kenny Moore II, who signed a three-year, $30 million contract extension with the Indianapolis Colts nearly a week ago.

Johnson, 27, had one year left on his previous three-year contract extension, signed during the 2021 season. He was set to account for $12.41 million in cap space this year. The Bills have performed several moves this offseason to create more cap space with extensions among them. The new contract for Johnson comes a week after the Bills signed left tackle Dion Dawkins to a three-year extension of his own.

Both Johnson and Dawkins fit the Bills’ approach of drafting, developing and re-signing their own. Johnson was drafted by Buffalo in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL draft, part of a successful draft for the Bills that included taking quarterback Josh Allen and now- Chicago Bears linebacker Tremaine Edmunds in the first round.

Johnson was named Second Team All-Pro for the first time in his career last season, finishing with a career-high three forced fumbles and 98 tackles. He has been a consistently available leader of the Bills defense, playing in every game but one since the 2020 season, when he cemented his role as the starter after being benched for a game during the season. That postseason included his historic 101-yard pick-six vs. the Baltimore Ravens in the playoffs. Johnson has recorded four regular-season interceptions, seven sacks, 32 passes defensed and 33 pass breakups.
