Buffalo Bills General Manager Doug Whaley released the following statement through the team:
"We worked very hard to come to a long-term agreement with Jairus, but unfortunately, were unable to reach one before today's deadline. Our attention will now be focused on a one-year agreement with him and on training camp with our continued efforts to prepare our team for the upcoming season."
Byrd and his agent, Eugene Parker, declined interview requests from The Buffalo News today.
