Found July 27, 2013 on Fox Sports:
PLAYERS: Jairus Byrd
TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills president Russ Brandon says the team will take another run at signing safety Jairus Byrd to a long-term contract next offseason despite failing to do so this year. In an interview with The Associated Press on Monday, Brandon described the chances of reaching a multiyear deal as being ''absolutely'' realistic even though Byrd and the team are at a stalemate in talks. The two-time Pro Bowl selection remains unsigned, and it's unclear when he'll report by accepting the team's one-year, $6.9 million contract offer. The Bills prevented Byrd from testing free agency in March by designating him their franchise player. Byrd is limited to signing a one-year contract through the end of this season after the two sides missed a July 15 deadline to negotiate a long-term deal.
