According to James Walker of ESPN.com, the Buffalo Bills and safety Jairus Byrd haven’t made any progress towards a new contract.

There has been no recent progress in the contract dispute between the Buffalo Bills and Pro Bowl safety Jairus Byrd, ESPN.com’s AFC East blog has learned. According to a league source, all has been quiet on both sides with the deadline to negotiate an extension fast approaching.

The Bills placed the franchise tag on Byrd in March.  If they can’t work out a deal by July 15th, he’ll be forced to play out the season under the tag.
