Jairus Byrd Hasnt Requested A Trade
During an interview with WGR 550 on Wednesday morning, Bills CEO Russ Brandon tried to clear up something about Byrds status with the team. There were reports last week that Byrd was trying to get the team to trade him, reports that Byrd questioned without denying when he was asked about them. Brandon was asked about them as well and said that theres been no trade request.
There was no trade requested. Thats not even a topic of conversation in our building, Brandon said, via Mike Rodak of ESPN.com.
There may not be a formal request, but theres been little from Byrd to suggest that hes thrilled to be in Buffalo right now, not that it matters all that much. Between his foot injury, his salary and the inability to sign a long-term extension until after the season, theres plenty of reasons why a Byrd trade would seem to be a fanciful notion at this moment in time.
