According to Rotoworld.com,  ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported reported on Thursday Night Countdown that the Buffalo Bills have had some “dialogue” with other teams about possibly trading safety Jairus Byrd.

Mort didn’t suggest a deal was likely to happen, but did say the door will remain open until the trade deadline. He added that it would have to be a “player-for-player” swap since teams don’t trade first- or second-round picks for safeties, even ones as good as Byrd. Byrd wouldn’t be able to sign a long-term deal with any team until next offseason, in the event he does get traded.

We reported on Wednesday that Byrd hasn’t requested a trade and their is some “ill will” between both sides.
