Sources tell WGR 550 Buffalo that the Bills will likely put Stevie Johnson on the trade block if they draft a wide receiver early.

It's no secret the Bills' new coaching staff in 2013 had a rocky relationship with Johnson. Buffalo already paid Johnson a $1.75 million March roster bonus, but could get out of his $3.65 million salary by moving on. Johnson could probably attract a fifth- or sixth-round draft pick. The Bills have been heavily connected to Sammy Watkins, Odell Beckham, and North Carolina TE Eric Ebron.

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak expects the team to keep Stevie Johnson for 2014.

Specifically, Rodak considers Johnson a "long shot" to move on this offseason. Johnson may be entering his final season with Buffalo, but he's due back as the club's primary slot receiver, with Mike Williams likely playing "X" and Robert Woods "Z" in three-wide packages. From a fantasy perspective, Johnson would need E.J. Manuel to take a huge leap forward for a bounce-back season.

NFL Network's Albert Breer suggests Stevie Johnson "could be moved" if the Bills draft Texas A&M WR Mike Evans at No. 9 overall.

The same thought has speculatively crossed our mind; Breer on Tuesday tweeted a few nuggets he'd gleaned around the league. Breer recently did a mock draft with Michigan OT Taylor Lewan at No. 9 to Buffalo. Breer was "told" Evans belongs in the top-ten picks. Evans' huge catch radius would be of great assistance to erratic passer E.J. Manuel. Johnson would very likely be released.

Bills coach Doug Marrone insists Stevie Johnson remains in the team's 2014 plans.

Marrone said he recently "cleared the air" with his supposed No. 1 receiver. "We had a great conversation," Marrone said. "I told Stevie, 'Hey, listen. I'm excited about getting started with you. I'm excited about you coming in and getting healthy and get this team going." Speculation - including from the Bills' own website - has been rampant that the team could decide to move on from Johnson, but doing so would free up just $25,000 in cap space. Johnson will be back in 2014, but with no room for error as he looks toward 2015.

Stevie Johnson is owed a $1.75 million roster bonus in March.

Joining WGR 550's Joe Buscaglia, ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak is the second Buffalo beat writer to suggest the team may cut ties with Johnson. Johnson clashed with first-year coach Doug Marrone in 2013 and set four-year lows in catches (52), yards (597), and touchdowns (3). Unfortunately, cutting Johnson would save Buffalo just $25,000 in cap room. We don't expect it before 2015.
