CONTRACTS SIGNINGS, EXTENSIONS, AND RESTRUCTURINGS
Here is where we will list contract details that we obtained through various media outlets. It is an approximation since the Bills do not release contract details. We will list all new contracts, restructured deals and extensions that happen in the 2011 calendar year. Some players may be asked to restructure their contracts which would convert base salaries into signing bonuses to save cap money. This practice usually puts teams in a bad cap situation in future years so it isn't likely this off season since the team is in good cap shape.

OT Erik Pears - 3 yrs. $9.3M; $3.85M guaranteed.
QB Ryan Fitzpatrick- 6 yrs. $57.75M; $24M guaranteed. SB $10M. $5M Option bonus (March 2012); $3M Roster Bonus (2013); $3M Roster Bonus (2014). Base $2.8M (2012); $4.25M (2013); $4.35M (2014); $7.2M (2015); $8.75M (2016); $9.4M (2017).
DT Kyle Williams - 6 yrs. $39M; $6M guaranteed.
LB Nick Barnett - 3 yrs. $12M; $6M guaranteed.
DT Marcell Dareus - 4 yrs. $20.4M All guaranteed.
LB Chris White - $2.16M.
WR Brad Smith - 4 yrs. $15M.
CB Drayton Florence - 3 yrs. $15M.
