New Orleans Saints Safety Jairus Byrd
Conference Call with Local Media
Wednesday, March 12, 2014

When did the Saints get in touch with you? Was it right off the bat, March 8? How quickly did this thing come together for you to end up in New Orleans?

“Once the time for teams to contact agents and stuff like that, that was loud. I knew there was some interest but I really didn’t know what was going to happen, I left that up to my agent and he kind of sorted everything out through all the teams. I was able to come here and that is kind of how it all started.”

What did you like about the Saints when you visited and what made you choose them?

“It’s the winning coaches. What Coach Payton has done and what Drew Brees have done here, any time you have that explosive offense it always helps when you are a guy on defense and a team is able to get leads on people, (and) jump out to early leads, that bodes well for a guy like me who wants to get turnovers and create turnovers because it makes another team one-dimensional. That is a really big factor and what allowed me to weigh all of my options and think about the best situation for myself.”

What do you make of Rob Ryan’s defense?

“Just from the defensive side, I see it is really aggressive. They do a lot of different things. I don’t want to say too much because I haven’t really had a chance to get in detail with Coach Ryan and everybody about the ins and outs of the defense. I don’t really know. I just had conversations. That’s really all I can really say is just from watching it that it seems aggressive and attacking.”

How much do you know about Kenny Vaccaro?

“I know he was a first round pick last year and from everything that I have heard he is a really good player. I am looking forward to playing with him. I really look forward to seeing what he does really well. When he played against us (Bills) he made a lot of plays. Everything I’ve heard is that he is a really good player so I look forward to watching him on film and stuff like that. It will be a really exciting thing to be back there with him.”

He must have been watching our 2011 explosive early lead offense.
