I think the rules under retirement also help out the cap...

Irk, but I bet if he reads between the lines he will be able to see that the Saints aren't going to over spend for him. They just spent some of his money for a very good player.

Re: New Orleans Saints agree to terms with safety Jairus Byrd

Saints sign S Jairus Byrd (6 years, $54M; $28M guaranteed): C+ Grade
When it was announced that Jairus Byrd inked a 6-year deal, I wondered what the value of his contract would be. I thought that a pact worth $45 million with $22 million guaranteed would earn the Saints a B+ or maybe a B. I was not expecting $54 and $28 million, respectively.

Byrd is one of the top free agents on the market, but this is too much money for a non-quarterback and non-pass-rusher, especially for a team as strapped for cash as New Orleans. Having said that, Byrd is going from a reeling franchise to a perennial Super Bowl contender, so unlike the free agents who defect for inferior squads, he could be motivated, even in the wake of signing an extremely lucrative contract.

Re: New Orleans Saints agree to terms with safety Jairus Byrd

I'm still in giddy disbelief over this whole thing. If it pans out then you can put this one up there alongside the acquisitions of Brees and Sproles in terms of the dynamic elements each brought to the team. And the fact that we're pairing an All-pro in his prime with the quickly developing monster that is Kenny V is just over the top.

I've come to expect things like this to happen every few years on offense under Payton. He will always have his toy(s).. but to finally have our prayers starting to be answered on defense is almost too much joy for my heart to take.. almost. What a day to be a Saints fan

Byrd and Graham Pairing Worth All of the Cuts Saints Had to Make | Bleacher Report

All of the cuts, and names that still might be gone are worth to get someone like this on the squad.....
