Byrd is a good player. Would be a big upgrade for our struggling Safety position.

Need to draft a bad ass SS to go along with him

Robert Lester could be that guy in the late second or early third round

Wbyrd is way better than any rookie or Current Panther. Deshawn Goldosn is another but why would he leave now? Byrd is youger too..than Goldson or Nakamura.

byrd and godfrey at safety? yes please.

secondary would go from a weakness to a strength, especially coupled with gamble's return, norman's play and captain's improvement. huge props to the front office (whoever they may be) if they make this happen.

Byrd is the true FS that I long for. He's fast, good in coverage, has good range and ball skills. If Gamble does return and we could land a FS of Byrd's caliber our D would be very stout, especially if we can add another DT to the mix.

Wait...what's that? Yep, I just got a chubby thinking about it.

Don't forget Josh Thomas, he may make Captain expendable in the slot. He's playing very well.

Everytime I remember his name I'm always reminded of the obvious decline of Jake. Didn't he pick him off like 3 times in that game as a rookie?

He hasn't slowed down since then and he's just a natural ballhawk. I'd love to have him.

This would be the heat. Byrd makes all types of play all over the field. This would give us fast safties and we could dictate with the blitz a little more.

His contract is up after this year I believe and will be a free agent. He has yet to work out a contract with the Bills and is a straight up BALLER. He's fiery, a sure tackler and a ball hawker. It seems like this is exactly what we are missing on our much improved defense. Now even though we have our own cap problems the Bills do as well. After giving Super Mario that ridiculous contract they might not be able to give JByrd the contract he wants. He is also most likely disgruntled for awful Bills defensive play. I have a feeling the new GM will want to makes some serious moves through F/A and restructuring. Only question is what would you want to give up for this monster if anything at all?

Also I wonder how the Bills feel about Dwan having more sacks than Mario Williams?

Note: Also this is all under the assumption that the Bills let him walk and don't franchise him. But getting Byrd frees us up in the draft to address DT, WR, CB, OL or TE which I feel are our biggest needs.

- He also played college ball at Oregen for Chip Kelly and with Jstew. He also works out with Beason in the offseason.

I'd had my eye on Eric Reid from LSU, but you make a very good point.

Sherrod will likely be gone. I hope we cut Naka. I would be fine with trading or cutting "all pro - Bwood" CB Chris Gamble if he doesn't take a pay cut. Gamble is aging and really had one great season after signing a Champ Bailey contract. After that we should have money to spend and remember Wharton's cap space goes toward next year also.

I can live with Byrd, Godfrey, Norman, Thomas, Capt if he stays, and maybe a rookie CB.
