Whaley on how he’ll handle Byrd situation

Posted by Chris Brown on May 16, 2013 – 11:39 am

One of new GM Doug Whaley’s bigger short term decisions will be coming to a resolution with franchise player Jairus Byrd. Here’s how he addressed the Jairus Byrd situation when asked about it by Buffalobills.com Thursday.

“First of all we’ve got to recognize that Jairus is a good player, and we’re in the business of accumulating good players,” Whaley said. “We as an organization are going to continue to negotiate with Jairus, but one thing we’ll stick with is not negotiating in the public.”

Whaley clearly understands that Byrd is a player they’d like to keep for the long term, but this is a situation that may not have an easy answer. No one knows what direction negotiations will take, but it will certainly be one of the bigger decisions Whaley will have to make early in his tenure as Bills GM.
