At the end of the 2013 season, Aaron Williams left a message written in magic marker on one of his own game jerseys in the locker of Jairus Byrd. In part it said he enjoyed playing with him and hoped he could continue to do so. After signing his contract extension Wednesday Williams was asked for his thoughts on Jairus Byrd’s current situation just day from hitting the free agent market.
“The whole thing about Jairus Byrd, people ask me every day if we’re going to sign Jairus back,” said Williams. “To be completely honest, that’s none of my business to even talk about. I’m going to let Russ (Brandon), Doug (Whaley) and Jim (Overdorf) handle that. If Jairus does come back that would be the greatest thing ever because our chemistry is unbelievable. I said it at the end of last season that we can look at each other and not even talk and know what we are talking about.
“If he doesn’t come back, good luck to him. We’re always going to be best friends. The business side is never going to change our relationship outside of football. We just have to move on and find another piece to try to replace his role and whatever we’ve got to do I know Russ and the office upstairs is going to have a game plan for that to happen.”
