Jairus Byrd, where art thou?

25
41. New England (fr. GB) - CB Darius Butler, UCONN - Signed (4-years, $4.325M; $2.735M guaranteed) 42. Buffalo - CB, Jairus Byrd, Oregon 43. Carolina (fr. SF) - DE, Everette Brown, Florida State - Signed (4-years, $4.3M; $2.685M guaranteed) Really, what is the hold up here? The parameters have been in place for a few days now. In fact, with Butler's signing a while ago, this could have been done soon after. The fact that Byrd is still unsigned is incredibly ridiculous at this point. Why is the team not offering 4 years, $4.13M, $2.71M guaranteed to split the difference between the two picks, and if they are, why in the world is Byrd/agent not signing the deal? This is silly if they are haggling over something like $15K or something. This might not be a big deal quite yet, but the fact that Byrd hasn't had one single practice with the Bills since he missed all of the OTA's, means he is likely incredibly behind. Each practice he misses means it's more and more likely that he won't be able to contribute right away. It also means we might have to keep a guy like Ko Simpson when we normally wouldn't simply because we need him as a backup. I'm more upset about this one than about Maybin potentially being out for a while simply because of how much Byrd has missed and how the outline for his deal is in place. Anybody else a little peeved about this one?
