Buffalo Bills General Manager Doug Whaley has released a statement about the club's decision not use its franchise tag on safety Jairus Byrd or anyone else:

"We have negotiated with representation for Jairus Byrd for more than a year, but have yet to reach an agreement on a contract extension. We remain open to getting a deal done with Jairus, but we have chosen not to use the franchise tag on any of our impending unrestricted free agents."
