BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A person familiar with the status of contract negotiations between the Buffalo Bills and safety Jairus Byrd has told The Associated Press the two sides are expected to meet at the NFL combine, which opens this week in Indianapolis.
The person spoke Monday on the condition of anonymity because of the Bills' policy of not discussing contract talks.
The person says there have previously been no formal contract talks between the Bills and Byrd, who is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent next month. The person adds, there has so far been no discussion as to whether the Bills intend to place a franchise tag on Byrd to retain the fourth-year player's rights.
Byrd is a four-year starter, and was selected to the Pro Bowl as a rookie.
