JAIRUS BYRD RUMORS & GOSSIP

Jairus Byrd out for the season with a torn meniscus

Jairus Byrd injured his meniscus (knee) at practice today and will have surgery to repair it. That means he’s headed to IR and is out for the season. While Byrd created the lone turnover the defense has to this point (a forced fumble of Julio Jones that Corey White recovered), his play was largely disappointing and certainly not worthy of what was at the time the largest contract...

New Orleans Saints: Safety trio can be special

Recently, New Orleans Saints’ prized free agent Jairus Byrd said that he and Kenny Vaccaro as a safety duo “stand right at the top.” Saying they are number one is difficult to claim with the Seattle Seahawks still around, but as far as tandems east of Seattle he may have a strong case. Regardless, Vaccaro and Byrd, along with Rafael Bush are a nice set to have. With the addition...

Jairus Byrd’s return flight to the field is on schedule

There are plenty of reasons to be stoked about the 2014 NFL season for New Orleans Saints fans, and the biggest one hasn’t even seen the field yet. In May the Saints signed free agent Jairus Byrd to a massive long-term contract which made him the highest paid safety in the NFL. Earl Thomas of the Seahawks later signed a larger deal which pays him more annually, but the total value...

New Orleans Saints safety Jairus Byrd named top-3 in NFL

Typically speaking, sports fans tend to worry about two things – the past and the future. They’ll debate who was the greatest player of all-time, while also spending hours discussing whether or not a rookie is going to be develop into an All-Pro. Both are fun exercises, things that keep fans engaged and the beer flowing at the local tavern. But they miss out on what is most important...

Byrd droppings already falling in New Orleans

Well it seems it didn’t take long for Jairus Byrd to raise eyebrows in ‘Who Dat?’ nation as he has elected to have optional back surgery just as OTA’s began in New Orleans. Anyone that has ever read my articles involving the best free safety in the league knows that I am not at all a fan of Jairus Byrd. I find him to be one of the most selfish men in the NFL and feel he is...

Twitter Tuesday: Welcome Jairus Byrd to WhoDat Nation

Arguably the biggest surprise so far in NFL free agency was the landing of Jairus Byrd in New Orleans. Byrd spent the majority of the days after his signing retweeting fans welcoming him to WhoDat Nation: “@_JIMM__: @jairusbyrd welcome to the family man! #WhoDatNation” — jairus byrd (@jairusbyrd) March 12, 2014 “@The_EZ_Life_: @jairusbyrd one of my favorite players in the...

Jairus Byrd ranks 3rd in list of top 10 free agent defensive backs

Jairus Byrd says he will keep Buffalo in mind as an option once he hits free agency this year, and it just might be a good idea that he is. The Bills made him a “substantial” offer and for some reason Byrd seems to think that teams are going to knock down his door in order to make him the highest paid safety in the NFL and I’m not so sure that is actually going to happen. In...

Where’s Jairus Byrd rank among best free agents in the 2014 class?

With Super Bowl XLVIII in the books, the 2013 season is officially in the rearview mirror. Thus, it’s time to look ahead to 2014. But before teams gather for training camp in July, play preseason games in August and tee it up for real in September, they have some roster building to do. While the NFL Draft in May will get most of the attention, free agency, which starts on March...

Mailbag: Is a QB coach in the works, Coaches fired and Screw Byrd.

Will we sign a free agent WR or draft one? – Steven Munoz I don’t see us drafting another wide receiver very high in the draft this year, they already addressed what they want from developing talent at that position last year. That being said I wouldn’t completely rule them out of going after a free agent receiver only of course if the price is right. But the Bills actually...

Top 5 Landing Spots for Jairus Byrd In 2014

Not a season passes that a bevy of talented players become fodder for trade, and most often because their current team refuses to pay the price to keep them. It is a natural consequence of the era of free agency, where inflated salaries (and egos) see key cogs fly the coup for "greener" pastures.And many players allow the big bucks to interfere with their play, making their new deal...
