Jairus Byrd unhappy with Bills’ lucrative offer


Byrd and the Bills have reached an impasse as it pertains to contract negotiations. According to the Associated Press, the Bills offered a lucrative deal, but Byrd turned them down.
“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.”





Spotlight on Dennis Hickey

The Miami Dolphins are stuck at a crossroads. Not since the days of Dan Marino have the glory days returned to a Miami team stuck in mediocrity. Last season the team came close to reaching the playoffs, before stumbling at the final hurdle with painful losses against the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets. Now it’s Dennis Hickey’s turn to take his seat in the spotlight.



Its Mallett time in Foxboro


Mallett is in the final year of his rookie deal. The Pats could re-up him, extend his period as Brady’s understudy, or perhaps trade him. Already, there’s been some speculation about him going to the Texans and rejoining Bill O’Briengiven Mallett knows the offense the former offensive Patriots coordinator plans to install in Houston




POLL: Should the Jets pursue Michael Vick


In many ways, this move makes sense for the Jets if it were to happen. New York is one of the few locations outside of disaster franchises like the Browns or Jaguars where Michael Vick has a reasonable chance at starting and taking a team somewhere. Vick’s best years were under the supervision of current Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
