After recently signing his one year franchise tender, Jairus Byrd may be looking to get out of Buffalo either this season or next. If the Bills do in fact trade the free safety, they could get a valuable package in return for him.
Byrd wanted to become the highest paid free safety in the game but that didn’t happen this season. You figured the problems would go away once a deal of some sort was gone but that isn’t the case. Ian Rapoport reported on Wednesday that ill will remains between Byrd and the Buffalo Bills.
Now Byrd isn’t demanding a trade, but he could be open to one and go to a team who could give him the deal he’s looking for.
This could be an issue that carries on through the entire season until a new deal is agree’d too or the free safety is moved to another team.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
