Jairus Byrd’s time with the Buffalo Bills could be coming to an end sooner rather than later.
The free safety is signed to a one-year, $6.916 million franchise tender after failing to reach a long-term contract extension with the Bills this summer. The restrictive franchise tag might not necessarily keep Byrd in Buffalo all year, however. Byrd and his agent, Eugene Parker, are trying to engineer a trade from the Bills before the NFL trade deadline, according to a report from Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News.
If the Bills can get good return value on Byrd, they may be smart to grant his wish.
