Bills hoping Jairus Byrd performs well, to boost his trade value

October 29th is not far away gents.  That day is important if you are an NFL football fan.  That is the trade deadline.  Jairus Byrd was placed on the trade block several days ago per Adam Schefter.  Well the Bills will have several games to audition their Pro-Bowl Safety to see what they can get for him.

As of right now I would say Jairus Byrd’s stock is declining, because he is 26 years old with Plantar fasciitis on both feet which has held him out of the first five games of the season.

What is Plantar Fascitis?

It is the flat band of tissue (ligament) that connects your heel bone to your toes. It supports the arch of your foot. If you strain your plantar fascia, it gets weak, swollen, and irritated (inflamed). Then your heel or the bottom of your foot hurts when you stand or walk.

Plantar fasciitis is common in middle-aged people. It also occurs in younger people who are on their feet a lot, like athletes or soldiers. It can happen in one foot or both feet.

After reading that what do you think?  Would you want him if you were a GM?

Buffalo would love to keep him and have made him several decent offer’s but both his agent Eugene Parker and himself are holding out for top money.  Well unless your name is Darrelle Revis or Richard Sherman, I highly doubt you are going to garnish a top pick.  Sorry Bills fans, don’t be surprised if the team only get’s a 3rd rounder and a conditional pick.
I expect the same trade the Bills received for Marshawn Lynch a few years back, but if the Bills can turn the picks into studs like Kiko Alonso it was worth it.
