Buffalo Bills general manager Doug Whaley said on Thursday that the team would listen to offers to safety Jairus Byrd even if they are not out trying to make a deal happen.

“Our focus right now is Jairus getting on the field and playing the best he can for the Buffalo Bills,” Whaley said, via the Associated Press. “We are not actively on the phone hammering out trying to look for a trade. By the same token, (team president) Russ Brandon would listen if someone wanted to trade.

“So if the phone rings, we’re going to listen. But that doesn’t mean we’re out trying to trade.”

Byrd has not played all season while dealing with plantar fasciitis  but is expected to make his season debut this Sunday against Cincinnati.
