BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - People familiar with contract talks between the Buffalo Bills and safety Jairus Byrd have told The Associated Press that negotiations have stalled, and no further discussions are scheduled.
The people spoke Sunday on the condition of anonymity because neither side has publicly discussed negotiations.
The Bills face a deadline Monday to apply a franchise tag on Byrd and retain the three-time Pro Bowl player's rights before free agency opens March 11.
One person said, Buffalo offered a multiyear contract that would have paid Byrd about $30 million over the first three seasons. The full value and length of the Bills' offer were not revealed.
Byrd played under a one-year, $6.9 million franchise tag last season. The price would increase to about $8.4 million if the Bills tagged him this year.
