Buffalo Bills free agent free safety Jairus Byrd is scheduled to visit the New Orleans Saints tonight, according to multiple reports.

Byrd is rumored to be extpensive with an annual price tag of $9 million.

The Bills made a substantial offer for Byrd to try to keep him. However, it evidently wasn't enough.

They declined to use the franchise tag on Byrd again, because it would cost them $8.3 million.

Byrd is expected to have a healthy amount of interest on the open market.
