Report: Jairus Byrd Trying To Get The Bills To Trade Him
Bills safety Jairus Byrd is fed up, and wants out of Buffalo now.
Byrd, who signed his franchise tender and agreed to play this season for $6.916 million, is trying to orchestrate a trade out of Buffalo, according to the Buffalo News.
It’s not clear exactly what Byrd and his agent are doing to try to get traded, and it’s also not clear whether any teams are interested in giving up anything of value to acquire him.
A team that acquires Byrd would have to give him a long-term contract next year, and it’s unlikely that any team would only trade for Byrd unless it were confident it could get a long-term deal done with him in March, when he becomes a free agent again.
The NFL trade deadline is Oct. 29, after the eighth week of the regular season.
