WGR 550 SportsRadio - Is Byrd Worth It For The Bills?

"When you find an elite level player at a position that is trending up in the NFL, teams should not let that slip away unless a suitable understudy is ready to step in. The Bills clearly do not have that, and while fourth-round pick Duke Williams or the recently converted Aaron Williams could become a solid starter down the line, it's tough to top 'elite' on a defense that requires excellent play and instincts from their safeties."

You can’t always run a deep route every time. You have to figure out the inside stuff. He’s figuring it out. He’s going to do very well."
