Stevie Johnson has had 1,000+ receiving yards each of the last 2 season.
Couple of items to mention:

Just saw and spoke to Vince Young in the Buffalo airport. I asked him how it went and he said very well!
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills receiver David Nelson describes free agent quarterback Vince Young as looking in great shape during his workout for the team.
What's unclear is what the Bills think about Young and whether he fits in their plans. The Bills and the player's representatives provided no update after Young met with coaches and held an on-field workout at the team's facility Wednesday.
Nelson was one of four Bills receivers to run routes and catch passes during Young's session. He said the sixth-year NFL player "looked good," and it was evident he's been working hard this offseason to stay in shape.
The visit was Young's first this offseason in a bid to find a new team. Young was not re-signed by the Philadelphia Eagles after completing a one-year contract.
From a Bills board, FWIW:
Heard the visit went excellent. He apparently was very humble and got along with everyone right away. My source says no way he leaves Buffalo unless his demands are high. Apparently looked to be in decent shape too...
Bills wr david nelson said VY is in great shape. Pretty good so far
David Nelson is the slot guy. He's the nuber 2 reciver but play always on the slot. Not very fast but good hands and solid red zone threat.
The number two receiver, who in the reality will be the 3rd option behind Nelson, maybe can be the guy we drafted this year in the 3rd round. TJ Graham from NC State. He's a speedster and was drafted to be a deep threat. He will compete against Marcus Easley, a guy we drafted 2 years ago in the 4th round, but was injured in his first year and had heart problems missing last year two. The fan base is high on him based on solid games in pre seasons and his physical skills. The other guy competing will be last year starter Donald Jones, who not played well, got injured, and looks more like a slot guy.
With Fred back, who is a great pass catcher halfback, CJ Spiller maybe will line up more at reciver too.
Our TE is Scott Chandler. He's 6'7, not fast but a big target in the red zone.
Chandler is a good TE
Johnson and Nelson are pretty solid
Jackson and Spiller will benefit with VY
VY and CJ Spiller in the backfield would be a pretty lethal option/zone read combo
So, does anyone have a clue what VY wants outta this? Seriously, does he need a job or not?
VY and Mario on the same team, but not original teams. Man if you redid the 2006 draft it would look completely different. I guess that goes for every draft.
MF: Vince Young was the primary backup last year to Mike Vick, he’s been available for weeks now on the free-agency market, he’s reportedly got a workout today with the Bills. How surprised are you that it’s taken this long for a market to develop for Vince Young?
HR: Very surprised. Vince was an unbelievable teammate when he was here and you saw him continue to get better. We felt like he was going to have an opportunity to go somewhere and maybe compete for a st. So whoever gets Vince Young is going to get a steal at this stage of the offseason and we wish him the best.
Looks like Vince impressed at least one Bill during his workout...
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Buffalo Bills receiver David Nelson described free agent quarterback Vince Young as looking in great shape during his workout for the team on Wednesday.
What's unclear is what the Bills think about Young and whether he fits in their plans. The Bills provided no update after Young met with coaches and held an on-field workout at the team's facility.
A person familiar with Young's travel schedule would only say that the player flew out of Buffalo later in the day. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because no updates had been provided by the team.
Nelson was one of four Bills receivers to run routes and catch passes during the quarterback's session, and was impressed by Young's appearance and ability.
"He looked good," Nelson said, after honoring a teacher and hosting a discussion at Orchard Park High School. "Big guy. Physical and aggressive. He's in shape. He's definitely in shape working out and working hard."
sounds like everything went well in Buffalo, with the possibility that he may have some offers from other teams to explore as well.

i think he can try out for the texans, matt schaub might not make it in time for TC/Preseason/season opener, and if that's the case, i think they'll sign a vet qb, but it'll most likely be jake delhomme. wouldnt hurt tho, gary is a great qb coach.

Love seeing the olineman celebrating, then back to earth. What a terrible drop. It will haunt him.
I think Buffalo would be a good fit. Good receivers and backs. Fitzgerald is good, but not some unseatable superstar and not necessarily an iron man. Young would likely get a shot in Buffalo at some point.
"He looked good, he's in shape," is not a ringing endorsement of a QB. Has anyone ever said, "Tom Brady, Ben Rothelisberger, Kevin Kolb, Alex Smith, Jake Delhomme, Matt Hasslebeck looks like he's in shape"?
"He's in shape," is good if there was an expectation that he'd been hanging with JaMarcus Russell or took a year off, but he played as much football as Ryan Fitzpatrick. Is he in shape?
They may be playing it close to the vest, but you want to hear, "His passes looked good... He was accurate... He understood what we're trying to do... Etc."
I know this has been said before but Vince needs a team like this. An average QB with decent or good skill position players. When he was in Philly even when Vick got hurt Vince had no chance of holding on to the job but with the Bills if Fitzpatrick gets hurt then it would be tough for him to win the job back. I think the Vikings would be a good place to land because Ponder is a joke.
That is the only comment to come out of this whole thing from the Bills' side. Guessing they're being tight-lipped as an organization.
Some of you guys are way over-analyzing a positive statement about VY's workout.
Prior to the work out the Bills posted the information on their website. The GM basically said they were bringing in a veteran QB who he thought was good.
At this point I think the Bills would love to sign VY. I think he's slow playing it for various reasons. A lot of moving parts to this.
wish there was a Buffalo Bills Network so that his workout could be viewed live, but only by a few.
Have to love aggy Geoff Hangartner going all aggy on Fitzpatrick at the end thinking the ball was caught. Oh aggy, you continue to be a never ending fountain of entertainment.
