Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd hasn't signed his one-year franchise tender worth $6.9 million yet, and he looks to be content with waiting until the last minute, or until both sides can work out a long-term deal.
That means he won't be attending the teams' voluntary offseason conditioning that startsTuesday, a person Byrd has informed of his decision tells NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.
Minicamp, which in mandatory, begins June 11th, and Byrd will likely sign his tender then, one would assume. Among the eight players who were tagged this offseason, only Byrd and Ryan Clady have not signed their tenders.
Byrd is a two-time Pro Bowl selection who has 18 interception in his four-year career since he was selected as a second-round draft pick from Oregon.
