According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Buffalo Bills plan on using the franchise tag on safety Jairus Byrd if they’re unable to sign him to a long-term extension.
The #Bills still want to do a deal with S Jairus Byrd. If not, I’m told they plan to franchise tag him. Won’t let him get away for nothing

It looks like Byrd can’t escape Buffalo.
