Doesn't Pettine like to use 3 safties a lot? I see Searcy and A.Williams being the starters this year with D. Williams being the 3rd guy we use. I also personally like Mana Silva A LOT, but we'll see what happens with Byrd first.

Sources: Bills' Byrd looking for Weddle, Goldson money

Quote:
"I don't think, in my opinion, Buffalo values that position enough to pay at that level," said the second league source. "Byrd is a good player. He definitely deserves to get paid at the top of the market. I just don't think Buffalo is willing to cave to the demands that Eugene is making. That's really what it's boiling down to, and that's why he didn't get the extension they could have easily afforded to pay."


Apparently the two sides aren't even talking. It's not going to happen.

God just once I'd like to keep a player that we develop before letting him go to the next team and be a star.

We should at least trade him and get SOMETHING for him.

This really annoys me. We have the cap room, and in all likelihood we are gonna loose him for nothing

This part annoys me the most. With the new CBA, don't we need to spend 90% of our cap space? I think we still have a lot of $$ to spend. Rolling Eyes Question

I'll say it till it's not true anymore.

We're the NFL's farm team. Players that showcase themselves here NEVER stay here. We never retain talent and it's infuriating.

Jarius Byrd's don't grow on freaking trees. Ya can't just slap an Aaron Williams (who's been a corner for 2 years) or a Searcy and expect there to not be a drop-off. Safety used to be a huge strength, now it's going to be another liability on a defense that's sucked at a historic level for 5 years.

Very true but I think since Byrd wants/deserves Goldson/Weddle money the Bills will take this season to see how Byrd fits into Pettine's defense and if he keeps playing at the same level this season he will be franchised so the Bills can pays the man the money he rightfully has earned.

The deadline has officially passed. Byrd can either sign the franchise tender, negotiate a one-year deal, or hold-out.

Statement from Whaley on Byrd

We worked very hard to come to a long-term agreement with Jairus, but unfortunately, were unable to reach one before today’s deadline. Our attention will now be focused on a one-year agreement with him and on Training Camp with our continued efforts to prepare our team for the upcoming season.


Sounds like BS to me.

As usual, I'm on the teams side on this one. He's under contract for 1 year and 6.9 million dollars. He's not going be playing as much deep center field in this defense. Gives the team a year to see how he fits the system and Byrd makes more money than he did the first 4 seasons combined.

So sick of it.

Any time we make any forward momentum we just shoot ourselves in the foot.

...because that makes sense.

we all know about Eugene Parker and Jason Peters. i don't doubt that OBD tried to get a deal done. probably a very earnest effort.

i simply don't believe they're capable of negotiating with Parker (other top agents/talent) because Russ Brandon strikes me as a dullard. Marv Levy did a [inappropriate/removed] poor job as GM prior to Brandon which would include giving fat contracts to Derrick Dockery and Langston Walker. Parker and Peters, rightfully so, wanted to be paid A LOT more than those two stiffs. Parker simply wanted what his client deserved and Peters wanted what he had earned.

so what's a moron to do? when they're faced with the very real mistake they've made (or towing the company line), through their denial and incompetence, they find a way to make a bad situation worse. they cannot help themselves.

the problem isn't the city, players or even the coaches occasionally, it's the idiots in the front office. Eugene Parker (Purdue) is playing chess while Russ Brandon (St. John Fisher) is finger painting with the crap from his Pull Ups.

the good news is that sometimes players and coaches can out perform the idiots drawing up the contracts. the bad part of that is that you can only enjoy brief moments of their talent. so if you can, do as i do, at least enjoy the moments with the expectation that's all you're getting...

...and wait for Ralph's expiration date.

Um Russ Brandon doesn't do any negotiating with contracts. The GM does with the help of Senior Vice President of Football Administration (Jim Overdorf). But Brandon doesn't do much with the football side of things since Buddy Nix took over as GM.

So get the facts straight before you try being cute with stupid/crude jokes and whiting out a joke that is just stupid. K? Thanks bro.
