Great analysis of Jairus Byrd's worth by Spotrac.com

No biggie, just didn't want to type all that again, lol.
I agree that the guaranteed money will be a sticking point, but I disagree on the projections (yours and the authors). I think if Byrd re-signs with the Bills, it'll be for over $45 mil if it's a 5 yr deal, and over $20 guaranteed. Byrd might not get that elsewhere, and his value would fall closer to the projections, but I think since the Bills don't want to let Byrd go and have the money to pay him, Parker will see that as an opportunity to squeeze every last cent out of the deal.
JMO, but I think Byrd and Parker sense they can get more than market value out of the Bills and are willing to play hardball to get it. I just hope for better or worse, Byrd gets into camp and the Bills at least get another year out of him.

Homestly I probably would have tried to move him prior to the draft and used a draft pick to bring in a young safety. 9 million per year is too much to pay for a safety. If Pettine convinced me that he needed Byrd to make his offense go I'd be swayed to pay up, but considering his history with the Jets I doubt he'd ask for the money to be spent there.

That was a legitimate gripe before Nix took over, but not since. Poz and Levitre are the two highest profile players the Bills have "let walk" and most would agree the salaries they received elsewhere approach insanity.
Kyle Williams, Stevie Johnson, etc., have been extended under this regime. Have a little faith; it's early in the process and this is a big contract.
