JAIRUS BYRD RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: New Orleans Saints Safety Jairus Byrd With the One-Handed Catch Off the Jugs Machine

If you think about it, it is a little surprising that we don't see more one-handed catch videos featuring some of the NFL's finest defensive backs. Catching is not their primary objective, but it never hurts for a safety or corner back to be good at doing what the offensive guys do. Why? Because if you can catch the ball--with one hand or two--that means the wide receiver didn't...

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...

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.

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...
