I know I’ve been a little negative in my coverage of the Jairus Byrd situation. So I would like to hear your comments on the situation.
With training camp coming up and no word from the Byrd coop on if he will be attending camp or not, should the Buffalo Bills try and trade him now so that the situation does not become a distraction to the rest of the team while they are trying to learn new systems?
If Byrd decides he is going to sit out for the majority of camp and the pre-season, how quickly will he be able to get up to speed in Mike Pettine’s new system? There are going to be many new wrinkles to adapt to out of the same basic defenses. If there is a corner blitz called and he is not aware that he needs to pick up the receiver a big play will result. It only takes one or two big plays to turn a football game around.
Say he holds out for all of training camp and most of the pre-season will Pettine even be willing to let him on the field.
Byrd could end up as one very expensive backup player.
