"I don’t know where these reports come from," said Brandon. "It’s no different than what we talked about before. Our focus is getting JB back on the field and hopefully that will be this week. We are not actively seeking a deal. It’s not a topic of conversation in our building."

"I’m not trying to win them back over," said Byrd. "I’m just trying to go out there and play my game, do what we can to win games for these guys in the locker room that have played hard, that I’ve been with for four years. That’s what we’re going to try to do is go win games."
