Byrd is worth at least a mid to late 1st in a trade. Easily one of the best young Safeties in the league.

Well without a longterm deal, the dude will walk next year.

I'm assuming you sing him longterm, but if not, you could trade him for something... Or get nothing

They would probably get a 3rd-4th round comp pick for him, so it makes no sense to trade him for a 3rd round pick now. It's voluntary workouts so as long as he's staying in shape, I don't see an issue.

For those saying he's worth a mid-first round pick or more, I disagree. His run support is suspect and I've went back and watched multiple big runs given up by the Bills only to see Byrd take a bad angle, letting the opposing RB break a long one. Chris Johnson owned him multiple times in the Titans game.

I would trade a 2nd for him though, just unbelievable range against the pass...

Actually, that doesn't seem to be the case. I read just read the CBA section on franchise players, and the rules are a little funky when they refuse to sign. I'll summarize below.

1. If they don't sign by week 10, they can't play at all that year.
2. If the player doesn't play at all that year, they can be franchised again by the team the following year.
3. It does trigger the part about the higher of the franchise tag value or 120% of the previous year's salary, but it counts the last salary he was actually paid, which would be still be on his rookie salary, and thus the base franchise tag value would still be used.
4. It would have to be a non-exclusive franchise tag.
5. The compensation if another team signs him drops from 2 1sts to a 1st and a 3rd.

Basically, if the Bills want to play hard ball, they could lock him up for up to three years without the cost of committing to him going up (at least not more than the franchise tag cost itself does. Although it would get a bit easier for another team to steal him away.

I don't see any way Byrd would commit to 3 years out of the NFL just to avoid playing with the Bills. And knowing you either get Byrd to sign, or get much higher compensation from another team, there's no way I'd accept only a 2nd for him.
