It's time for the Bills to move Byrd - Sports - The Buffalo News

Jerry Sullivan: "There's another thing I don't doubt. If the Bills had given Byrd a long-term contract as one of the top safeties in the league (something in the five-year, $42.5 million range), there's no doubt in my mind that Byrd would have been on the field from the start of the season."

"But for that belief to permeate, it has to be backed up quickly with another win - this time against a team they should take care of, despite what the odds-makers say. The Browns. Because after starting 0-2, the Browns have won games in Minnesota and against Cincinnati, which means in Cleveland, they're writing and saying the exact same thing about their team as I did here."
