With the influx of youth at the wide receiver position since Stevie Johnson signed his contract extension a year ago the Buffalo Bills front office has followed through with a plan to hopefully take more advantage of his jukes and moves in the slot. The receiver has been lining up inside for much of training camp this year.

Let's rewind for a second. In December of 2012 former Bills GM Buddy Nix said he envisioned Johnson playing in the slot instead of lining up outside. At the time he was talking about the loss of Buffalo's slot receiver David Nelson and also looking ahead to the 2013 NFL Draft. They added a legitimate outside receiver in Robert Woods in April and had already added T.J. Graham who was already to the roster.

"We need a big-time outside receiver. T.J. gives us a lot of that" Nix said "but you still need to get another bigger guy that can line up out there and catch the ball when he's covered."

Since then a lot has changed at One Bills Drive. Gone is Nix - moved upstairs to an emeritus role - and head coach Chan Gailey who took his offensive coordinator with him. Doug Whaley took Nix's job following the drafting of Woods and Doug Marrone has installed a new offense with coordinator Nathaniel Hackett. Stevie's move to the slot has continued despite the upheaval.
