Bills franchise player Jairus Byrd doesn’t appear to be making any progress toward a long-term contract.
All has been quiet on both sides, according to James Walker of ESPN.
Byrd, a free safety who started 16 games, intercepted five passes and forced four fumbles last year, has not signed the one-year, $6.9 million franchise tender offer. He and Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady are the only franchise players who have not signed their tenders.
The Bills and Byrd have until July 15 to agree to a multi-year extension. If he doesn’t sign by then, he can only sign a one-year contract.
