Bills Won't Place Franchise Tag on Byrd

Orchard Park, NY (WBEN) - The Buffalo Bills won't try to clip the wings of Jairus Byrd. The team announced it won't place the franchise tag on Byrd.

In a statement, GM Doug Whaley says, "We have negotiated with represenation for Jairus Byrd for more than a year, but have yet to reach an agreement on a contract extension. We remain open to getting a deal done with Jairus, but we have chosen not to use the franchise tag on any of our impending unrestricted free agents."
