The Bills obviously got over Johnson's antics, re-signing him to a five-year, $36.25 million contract ($18.05 million guaranteed) in March. Johnson had groin surgery in the offseason, but he's expected to be a full-go when training camp begins this week.
"I want to do right by them," Johnson says. "I want to prove I can celebrate without getting penalties. I work hard to get in the end zone. My attitude is, 'Why can't I have some fun when I get in there?' But I have to do it in a way that doesn't hurt the team."
A game last November against the New York Jets neatly encapsulated The Stevie Johnson Experience. The receiver took it to vaunted cornerback Darrelle Revis, finishing with eight catches for 75 yards and a touchdown. But Johnson also was hit with an excessive-celebration penalty for mocking Plaxico Burress' shooting incident, then later dropped a pass that could have sealed a Bills victory.
