    He should just shut up, take the Franchise money and either become a Free Agent after the year or get a 20% increase in pay if they Franchise him again.

    Could we even afford his franchise tag after the Waters signing? The safety tag is nearly 7 mil.

    Byrd is a player. He is going to get a nice contract next year.

    Quality safeties are very hard to come by these days. With that said, I'd give up a 1st for the guy - would fill a major hole for many years to come.

    Too bad we're straight up broke.

    We're not going to have the luxury of spending big money on a safety for awhile.

    Too many holes at key positions in the near future.

    Im sure we can find a player to trade that would release cap and throw a solid pick (maybe not a 1st) but idk how old he is. I would totally approve a trade though... Ratliff?

    Gotta look at it from the Bills perspective, give up one of my very best young defensive players - for an aging, overpaid, often injured DT and a mid-round pick?

    Heard the talking heads on Total Access say it would probably be a player for player trade since someone will have to take on the remainder of his tag. We could probably move Miles for him, but I'd rather roll with what have then bring in a safety with plantar fasciitis.

    I believe that was part of Jay Ratliff's injuries from last season. My understanding is once you have it there are treatments for it but nothing cures it completely, it could flare back up at anytime.
