ESPN NFL reporter John Clayton in a report on the flaws of the franchise tag system, also provided an update on the Jairus Byrd situation with the Bills concerning a long term contract.
Clayton, who astutely pointed out that none of the eight franchised players this offseason have reached long-term deals, gave the following brief update on Byrd’s situation with Buffalo, from the point of view of the Byrd camp.
Byrd isn’t overly optimistic about getting long-term security with the Bills and might hold out. He’s unsigned.
Buffalo and Byrd have one week to negotiate a long term deal. We’ll have more on Byrd’s likelihood of agreeing to a long-term deal in our Top 25 Countdown to Training Camp Tuesday morning on the home page of Buffalobills.com.
