buffalocalzone Posted March 6, 2014 Share Posted March 6, 2014 By not franchise-tagging Jairus Byrd again, the Buffalo Bills might stand a better chance of signing him to a long-term deal, John Kryk of the Toronto Sun reports. That's what Bills general manager Doug Whaley said during the University of Buffalo's pro day. "I think it just sets up a more amicable negotiation, because last year -- I wouldn't say it was contentious, but as a player you always want to go out and see your true value, and we restricted that," Whaley said. So this year we said, 'For the betterment of the Buffalo Bills, and to show you more or less good faith, we're not going to use that option to restrict you from hitting the market. Let's try to go full bore, with both of us focused on trying to get a deal done.'" http://www.theredzone.org/BlogDescription/tabid/61/EntryId/40928/Bills-GM-says-not-tagging-Byrd--sets-up-more-amicable-negotiation-/Default.aspx Quote when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
