Bills tag Jairus Byrd

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Buffalo Bills have placed the franchise tag on safety Jairus Byrd.

I would think the Bills will end up signing Byrd to a long-term deal,  He’s a very important part of their defense.

The 26 year-old Byrd recorded 76 tackles, 4 forced fumbles and 5 interceptions in 2012.
