Bills sign FS Byrd, waive WR Sam

The Buffalo Bills have officially announced the signings of OG Eric Wood - which we've known about for nearly 24 hours now - and FS Jairus Byrd. 

Wood, as we explained earlier this afternoon, agreed to a five-year, $13 million (maximum) deal.  He will practice Thursday and is expected to lock down the starting right guard job sooner rather than later.

The terms of Byrd's deal are as of yet undisclosed, though it's highly likely he agreed to a four-year deal.  As we mentioned roughly an hour ago (via the Buffalo News), Byrd recently underwent sports hernia surgery and is expected to miss the next two weeks while he recovers.  That's the bad news - he hasn't practiced with the team since May's rookie mini-camp, and he may not see the field until after Buffalo's first pre-season game.  The upside, however, is that he'll be in Pittsford, participating in meetings and picking the brains of the veterans.  For someone with as little NFL experience as him, that counts for something.

With these roster moves in mind, the Bills had to free up a roster space.  They did so by placing WR P.K. Sam on the waived/injured list.
