One of two franchise taggees not to sign his one-year franchise tender to this point, Buffalo Bills S Jairus Byrd appears to be quite serious in his desire to get a long-term deal to replace that one-year offer. To this point, there hasn't been much buzz on serious negotiations between the two sides; then again, the Bills had free agency and the draft about which to worry. Now that those two items are out of the way, the team can get to work trying to find a common ground with their best home-grown player.
