The Buffalo Bills are willing to use the franchise tag on safety Jairus Byrd for the second year in a row reports NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

While the Bills have been trying to re-sign Byrd they could always use the tag on him for a second straight year. Doing so would earn Byrd a salary around $8.3 million. It could give the two sides a chance to work out an extension.

Byrd is believed to be seeking a salary of $8 million annually.
