#20 - Will Jairus Byrd sign long term? -
"Yeah re-signing with Buffalo, I have no problems, but I know that around this time it’s about business, so I understand that too," said Byrd late last season. "I love the fans here. We just have to win. That’s the biggest thing, just winning and I want to be somewhere where I’m wanted too. I want people to want me here and if that’s the case I have no problems with Buffalo."

"You can see what’s going on with Jairus Byrd. Cam Chancellor of Seattle just got $7-million dollars a year. I don’t know if the Bills are at that number or not, but you would think Byrd would want top safety number, a little bit over $9-million. And that probably isn’t going to happen. Because of that, it’s tough to get those long term deals."

Byrd watch: Sides aren’t talking - The Buffalo News
"The Buffalo Bills are not close to signing safety Jairus Byrd. No contract talks have been scheduled, and there’s no understanding between the sides that they’ll talk any time soon. That’s what a source close to the situation told The Buffalo News on Monday, one week before the July 15 deadline for franchise-tagged players to negotiate multiyear contracts."

Fantasy running back handcuffs for all 32 teams -
"2013 Outlook: Spiller is coming off a career season that saw him rank among the top-10 players at his position based on fantasy points. He also averaged more fantasy points per touch than any other back in the top 10. He'll see the lion's share of the work under new coach Doug Marrone and is a surefire first-rounder. Jackson, 32, is coming off an injury-plagued campaign and has missed a combined 12 games over the last two years. He's more valuable as a handcuff for Spiller owners at this point in time."
