Found September 05, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
PLAYERS: Jairus Byrd
TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
There is more drama going on in Orchard Park, New York than my daughter’s 7th grade homeroom.  After flying into camp late, signing his franchise tender at the last moment and publicly hinting at his displeasure with the Bills for placing the franchise tag designation on him, Buffalo Bills safety, Jairus Byrd, wants out of Buffalo. Michael David Smith of NBCSports reports that Byrd, who is battling plantar fasciitis in his foot, is trying to be traded from the Buffalo Bills.  If I was a blind man and did not know which team Byrd was on, I would say he was on the Jets with all this BS flying around. The reports are unclear at this time what Byrd is actually trying to do to be traded.  The trade deadline is October 29 and his new team would have to take on his $6.9 million dollar salary in addition to negotiating a long-term deal or Byrd will glide away come spring.  Byrd played through pain last season for the losing Bills yet the Bills still do not want to walk down the aisle and create that lengthy union.  This is the natural result; Byrd has had enough and wants out. I have written a few articles about this topic and I keep going back and forth as to who is to blame for this impending break-up.  Byrd, for not taking his coin and shutting his beak or the Bills for letting a player, who “took the needle” just to leave his blood and guts out on the field, become so disgruntled he wants out.  For me, a player, especially a talented one, who does what he can within the rules to stay on the field, is a player I want. O.W. Shaddock, played by the late great John Matuszak, in North Dallas Forty, speaking to the fictitious club's coach/general manager said, “Every time I call it a game, you call it a business.  Every time I call it a business, you call it a game.” How appropriate your words are O.W.  I think Byrd and Bills’ management should watch that movie together.   You can follow me on twitter @TheSoftParade69 Talk football talk cigars talk anything, I know a little about a lot.   Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
