Jairus Byrd will be with the Bills this season after all.
Following night practice on Wednesday, the team announced Byrd has signed his one-year franchise tender. He'll be a welcome addition to Mike Pettine's new defensive scheme.
Byrd was a Pro Bowl selection after putting up five interceptions and four forced fumbles last year.
The 26-year-old Byrd has 18 interceptions in his first four years in the NFL. Half of those came in his first season.
