Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd is one of the top players scheduled to hit the free agent market in free agency. He is arguably the second best safety in the NFL, behind Seattle Seahawks' Earl Thomas. On the open market, Byrd will likely draw significant interest.
The Bills have discussed a contract extension with Byrd, but are unlikely to agree to one before free agency and are unlikely to use the franchise tag on him, according to Joe Buscalgia of WGR550.com. He says that it is unlikely that Byrd will re-sign with the Bills.
