01:21 PM ET 04.17 | The Buffalo Bills and safety Jairus Byrd both want to get a long-term contract extension done, now it's just a matter of coming to an agreement, according to Yahoo. Byrd is currently under the franchise tag and hasn't shown up to voluntary activities yet this season. Byrd has yet to sign his franchise tender which means he's allowed to negotiate with any team he wants to. General manager Buddy Nix wants Byrd back, but isn't pressing. Should Byrd come to terms with another team, the team would have to give up two first-round picks to Buffalo, making that scenario highly unlikely. The Bills also have the right to match any offer. The ffith-year safety is one of the best players on the Bills and certainly is of major importance to new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, who is trying to put together some early ideas of his personnel.

Not neccesarily. Brady, Mannining, Brees, and a host of others are still going strong with 10+ years in.
