Jairus Byrd trade rumors: Bills safety wants out of town

Norm Hall

Buffalo may not be the home of Byrd much longer, who is reportedly wanting a trade.

Bills safety Jairus Byrd and his agent Eugene Parker are seeking a trade out of Buffalo, according to the Buffalo News.

Byrd and the organization have made little progress since the end of last season in signing a long-term contract, and now Byrd and his agent are reportedly seeking a trade before the NFL trade deadline on Oct. 29.

When asked last week if he really was demanding to be traded, Byrd certainly didn't halt the rumors, per the piece:

"I’m going to leave the private matters of the business side between us," Byrd said. "But I don’t really want to comment on other things."

The Bills would likely want at least a draft pick in return, probably ranging from a second to fourth round selection depending on how well Byrd looks this season while dealing with plantar fasciitis. Byrd has been one of the better players for Buffalo since being drafted in the second round back in 2009.

In his four seasons with Buffalo, Byrd has 18 interceptions including nine his rookie campaign. In 2011, he racked up a career-high 98 tackles.
