WGR 550 in Buffalo is reporting that the Buffalo Bills and safety Jairus Byrd have yet to talk, and have no plans and no intent on talking prior to Monday’s franchise tag deadline. Reporter Joe Buscaglia also contributes that the situation is shaky between the two parties. When the Bills franchise tagged Byrd on March 1st, this likely wasn’t the ending they planned. As the two side approach a stand still, it might take a miracle to make a long-term deal happen. More than likely, Byrd’s 2013 salary will be that of a franchised safety. It’s been reported the 26-year-old safety wants to receive a deal in the ballpark of what the Chargers’ Eric Weddle (five years, $19 million guaranteed) and the 49ers’ Dashon Goldson (five years, $22 million guaranteed) received in recent memory. While the request certainly seems reasonable for the type of impact player he is, the Bills are showing some hesitance. Buscaglia adds Buffalo is dragging their feet because they want to see how Byrd plays under Mike Pettine’s new defensive scheme prior to a multi-year commitment. We have Byrd listed as the No. 5 player in our Top 50 – 2014 Free Agents list. The post Report: Bills, Jairus Byrd Have “No Plans to Talk” Before Deadline appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
