For this reason, the Bills are trying hard to lock him up before the season. Likelihood: Unlikely S Jairus Byrd Jairus Byrd has emerged as one of the best all around safeties in the NFL and he’s better than Michael Huff, Tyvon Branch, Michael Griffin, and Dashon Goldson, all of whom have been franchised as safeties over the last 2 seasons. The safety franchise tag value is pretty small (6.2 million in 2012) so, unless they can get him signed long term beforehand, it’s very likely he gets the tag next ...

That time the Bills finally beat the Pats
