Doug Marrone, Rex Ryan praise Byrd

(Mike Triplett)
New Orleans Saints safety Jairus Byrd drew some lofty praise from his former coach -- and from one of his former rivals -- Tuesday at the NFL meetings in Orlando.

The AFC coaches were available to the media on Tuesday morning, so Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone and New York Jets coach Rex Ryan were both asked about Byrd. Here are some video clips, courtesy of NewOrleansSaints.com.

Marrone said the Bills made a competitive offer to try to keep Byrd. But he said if they had to lose him, he was “actually happy” that Byrd landed in New Orleans -- both because the coach is in the AFC and because he knows it will be a good fit for Byrd.

Marrone, a former offensive coordinator with the Saints, said he told Sean Payton he’s getting an “awesome player” both on and off the field. Here are some more quotes via The Advocate.

Ryan said he’s happy, too.

“I’m glad he’s out of our division. I’m also glad for my brother,” said Ryan, whose twin brother Rob is the Saints’ defensive coordinator.

We paid a pretty penny but we should reap the rewards for at least six years.

I'm just glad we got someone who can catch the ball, not to mention an interception machine.

Ryan should be able to play a lot of single high safety this year, with Vaccaro/Bush playing closer to the line. We should have excellent run coverage even in a nickel look

Not too mention being able to press a lot safer...
