Whaley to meet with Byrd’s agent

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WIVB) – Bills General Manager Doug Whaley will meet with Jairus Byrd’s agent during this weekend’s NFL Combine festivities.

“We will have some discussions later on this week with his camp, but there has been conversations with his camp before we got here,” said Whaley.

Whaley repeated what he’d said after the season, that he wants Byrd to return and will examine every possibility to make that happen. Again today, he would not rule out the possibility of the franchise tag.

Byrd will be an unrestricted free agent if the Bills are unable to sign him.

Fellow Bills free agent-to-be Alex Carrington is represented by the same agency as Byrd.
