I went ahead and put "rumor" in the title because that's exactly what it is. But take it for what its worth and people who have been on this message board for a long time know I've never posted anything like this before BUT.......I do know someone who spent 2 years with the Bills roster back in the mid-2000's and who he says still talks to one player (won't tell me who) on the roster (has to be Fred Jackson but he won't tell me). I say Fred Jackson because the guy I know came from NFL Europe around the same time Fred Jackson did.
He messaged me this morning on Facebook and said that the rumor going around the franchise is that the Bills and Byrd have never been closer to a deal than they are right now and that's why the Bills haven't tagged Byrd yet compared to other teams who have already began tagging potential free agents. Said that the hang up is guaranteed money and the Bills are expected to get it done this weekend or he will be tagged.
