Father's Day A Bigger Pain Than Normal For Byrd Family

With the NFL lockout continuing despite optimism, several NFL players are having a much different time this Father's Day than in years past. One of those players is Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd.

NFL teams aren't supposed to have any contact with players. That goes for owners, general managers, and coaches. Jairus' father, Gill, is a defensive backfield assistant coach with the Chicago Bears. Gil must record every conversation he has with his son.

"He has to report it and write down what we talked about and whatever," Jairus Byrd told Tim Graham this May. "I don't have to jot anything down, though. To me, I just talk to him like I always have. That's his problem."

So while Jairus can stop by and say hi, his dad has to take some time to mark down the visit. It's also his parent's anniversary today as Byrd mentioned on his Twitter account this morning.

"Happy fathers day and happy anniversary to my parents ...28yrs and strong

Happy Father's Day, Rumblers. Check out last year's story from Father's Day which outlines the current and former Bills who had dads or sons play in the league.
