Warren Sapp To Jairus Byrd: ‘Go Earn’ Bills Contract

Reportedly looking to be the highest-paid safety in the NFL, Jairus Byrd failed to agree on a long-term contract with the Buffalo Bills on Monday, which might lead to ongoing contract haggling.

Soon-to-be Hall of Fame defensive tackle and NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp said on NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access” Monday night that Byrd should stop quibbling and just go play.

“It’s about what the team deems you worthy of being paid,” Sapp said. “Sign your tender, go back to work and earn it like your rookie year when you came into the league and you went to the Pro Bowl. That’s what you do. Whenever somebody questions your play on the football field, you go out on the football field and you show it.”
