Jairus Byrd?

Report: Bills unlikely to tag Byrd or sign him before free agency

Posted by Josh Alper on March 2, 2014, 1:04 PM EST



Bills General Manager Doug Whaley said that every option was on the table in regard to safety Jairus Byrd as he approaches free agency, but it appears that the Bills have eliminated one of those options just before the deadline to use the franchise tag.

And despite making what Buscaglia reports was a ”substantial” offer for a contract that would keep Byrd off the open market, it also looks unlikely that the Bills will be able to sign Byrd before free agency opens on March 11.

Wouldn't mind it. We can use a true FS. But he is way out of our price range if he wants $8m a yr

Maybe he's someone that'd rather win and play for a good organization and make less $ instead of staying w a flailing organization and making a couple million more a year...? We won't know until he is actually signed by a team, but I think he wants to win. Just call it a hunch.

Defense wins championships. Give our offense a short field and an extra possession.

I don't see how we can shell out at least $8 million a year. Thanks Jimmy.

I normally lean toward not bringing in high priced players unless its a top QB. Draft well and bring in pieces in FA.

Love to get this guy, safeties are relatively cheap, even the best ones, also the cap will expand next year with a new tv deal, so it's possible but we would have to fix the Graham deal or get two 1st round picks

Among the options the Bills reportedly considered was tagging Byrd with the intention of trading him, but the possibility that they would face another protracted holdout from Byrd if they couldn’t find a taker in a trade helped quash that notion. Byrd would make $8.3 million if tagged after being tagged last year.
I think a FS of his caliber is worth it.
