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.

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


I agree, I'd take Josh Thomas over Captain. I'd also cut Gamble if it would help with us bringing in Byrd. Cutting Gamble actually saves us the most money. Kind of like Wharton this year.

Agree. People gets carried away about Gamble's great season last year. People doesn't remember that this man hasnt been able to stay on the field and he only lived up to 1yr of his "Champ Bailey" contract. I'd trade him to a team like the Pats for a 5th or 6th, or cut him. We have a lot of money attached to him next year and not knowing how many games he'll give us in the future.

Gamble was playing at the same level this year and that was before the pass rush was working.

the main point would be are there any other teams out there in need of a FS, that worry's me if we go after him because the more teams that call the higher his contract will be but there is a plus side he does work out with our guys

Sure there are. His team the Bills, SF, Cincy, Pats, Denver, Jets, Houston, us, etc are all in need of a FS

hmmmm it's looking hazy right now but depending on our new gm and if Rivera stays will ultimately be the deciding factor. i'm hoping we could work this out in the off-season somehow

Not going to lie that he didn't but if you were the GM of this team, would you pay an aging vet that kind of money who since he signed his 6yr contract have missed 23 games? Or would you rather trade/cut him and use that money toward a need of "FS" in a Byrd or Goldshon?

Think the Bills are in pretty bad shape in cap space also.
