Byrd was given the ``franchise'' label in March, and the two sides faced a Monday deadline to work out a long-term deal. He is the only remaining NFL player who has not signed his franchise tender.

A person familiar with the details of the negotiations said there were no talks today. The source spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of contract discussions.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book, the Bills are 150/1 long shots to win the 2014 Super Bowl. The Niners, meanwhile, are 6/1 to win, while the Broncos are 13/2 and the Seahawks are 8/1. The Patriots are also 9/1 and the Packers to win 12/1.
