Bills President and CEO Russ Brandon commented on the signing of Jairus Byrd late Tuesday, and there’s no change in the team’s approach to get Byrd locked up long term once the regular season concludes.
“We’re thrilled to have Jairus back,” said Brandon. ”I look forward to seeing him. He’s had a couple of great years for us and we’re looking forward to him having another great year.”
The Bills and the Byrd camp were able to see eye to eye on a long term contract extension prior to the July 15th deadline, but it never got acrimonious between the two sides. That’s why Brandon is confident a long term pact can be brokered once it is permissible at season’s end.
“As I said from day one there’s nothing personal in this at all,” said Brandon. ”He’s a great Bill. We weren’t able to come to an agreement before the July 15th deadline, but as soon as we can go back to work on that our goal is to have Jairus here long term.”
