Whaley’s Statement on Byrd

The 4pm deadline has come and gone. No deal for Jairus Byrd and the Buffalo Bills. This is what GM Doug Whaley had to say following the deadline. “We worked very hard to come to a long-term agreement with Jairus, but unfortunately, were unable to
reach one before today’s deadline,” said Whaley. “Our attention will now be focused on a one-year agreement with him and on Training Camp with our continued efforts to prepare our team for the upcoming season.” Now the Bills can only have Byrd sign his franchise tag, work out a one year deal or possibly do a sign a trade with a other team.
