Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson knows ... when you sign a $36.25 MILLION contract ... you thank your boss every time you get a chance!

Johnson was out in L.A. last night ... celebrating his new 5-year deal with the Bills with friends ... and told us, "Shout out to the Buffalo Bills for signing a kid!"
 
Stevie continued, "I'm in a comfortable position right now ... I can take care of everybody now ... I can take care of the family now."

Johnson says the NFL has prepped him about how to be responsible with his fortune ... but as Stevie puts it, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make that b*tch drink."

I predict a torn ACL in the 2nd preseason game. He then develops a case of "bench butt" and is traded to the Browns for a 1st round draft pick in 2013

TMZ, it sucks that you are reporting more and more on sports. They have their own sites and channels, stick to the entertainment. when I see sports on TMZ I click out of the site and go over to Perez Hilton. Know your target audience!

Be careful. Taking care of everybody will make you bankrupt. Who are those two guys? Hangers on?

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like urban Asians are always overcompensating. That little dude was so damn ****y and annoying, and for what? Using words like "we". That's not his money. lol.

This guy has a promising future, including 3 "baby mommas", a concealed weapons charge, and bankruptcy.

My guess is, Stevie will be broke in 5-10 years. He won't be "taking care" of anybody.

He's a douchebag cheap shot artist. All i can say is all other players in the nfl should watch their back. He'll go at your knees even if the play is 30 yards away.

Do not become a walking ATM for your family and new friends. They will use you until you are broke and then bye-bye. Be smart, invest, save for a rainy day. Hope he has people he can trust and that are looking out for his best interest.
