New Orleans Saints agree to terms with safety Jairus Byrd
 
1 Attachment(s)
The New Orleans Saints made a huge, unexpected splash in free agency as the team agreed to terms with prized safety Jairus Byrd on a six-year contract, the team announced Tuesday night. The deal is worth a maximum of $54 million, including $28 million guaranteed, according to ESPN.

The Byrd deal came on the heels of former Saints starting safety Malcolm Jenkins agreeing to a three-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday afternoon. Jenkins said the Saints never made him an offer forcing him to look for a contract elsewhere, and it looks like the Saints had loftier plans of landing one of the top overall free agents on the market.

The Saints weren't in a position to spent megabucks on a free agent as they're about $2 million under the salary cap before the Byrd deal. So the Saints will have to make significant salary maneuvering to make this deal work as Byrd secured the $9 million per season price tag he sought in free agency.
