Yes, the Bills to re-sign him, or at least franchise him.

Bills need to resign him. His price may have just gone up though.

Byrd made PFF's All-Pro first team too. Glad he's getting some recognition!

More interesting than the team itself is who received votes. Wood had a vote. McKelvin had a few at KR. Levitre and Spiller didn't get anything.

A lot of established backs with far more touches. Guards are a position thats getting a bit hot with talent too. Center is a total void, and KR is one that cycles quickly so a single good season is more likely to be noted.

Congrats to J. Byrd for getting the recognition while playing in such a crappy defensive scheme this year. Hopefully Pettine has plans to highlight his strengths next year...I can see him using his instincts & intelligence to become an even more dominate player.

Also congrats to M. Lynch (wished he were still here) for turning his career around and making the 1st team, BEAST-MODE !!!

On a side note, according to PFF, Levitre is Bills best pass blocker by a mile and its not even close for 2nd

Yeah, really.

It's beyond me how they would let these guys test free agency. Sign one and franchise the other if necessary.

Byrd has to be the #1 off season priority.  Teams with impact players win in this league and he is the Bills #1 impact player on defense.

If they tag him, he's got no choice.

It's interesting that no draft pick or free agent signing of Buddy Nix received any votes either.  Building a team isn't about having Pro Bowlers or All-Pros (ask the Chiefs) but there remains a distinct lack of talent on this team.

This is going to be a difficult situation for the Bills FO.  I think the only way we keep Levitre is to tag him for one more season.  He mentioned he wasn't offered a contract, which can sound like the Bills haven't done anything, but could it be his agent didn't ask for one?   I think it's going to be a long negotiation with Byrd, which may force a tag to be necessary to continue to work on it next year, which could cause Levitre to walk.

On a sidenote, who else remembers everybody tearing their hair out when Byrd was drafted?  Presumably because he was a DB.

That is very surprising.  The Pouncey brothers have been really good.
