Bills spokesman Scott Berchtold would not confirm or deny that an agreement had been reached.
"Nothing has been signed," Berchtold said.
The contract is worth $12,036,000 and includes a $4 million signing bonus, Riemersma's agent, Jack Wirth, and an unidentified team source told a sports Web site.
Riemersma joined the Bills as a seventh-round pick in the 1996 draft. Despite missing time with injuries in 1999, he set career highs with 37 catches and 496 yards receiving.
In four seasons, he has 88 catches for 992 yards and 12 touchdowns.
