New Orleans Saints safety Jairus Byrd named top-3 in NFL

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; There’s a reason why the Saints were willing to give Byrd a six-year, $56-million contract this offseason, and it certainly wasn’t because of the calming influence he brings to the locker room. Instead, the sometimes-unhappy safety got a big payday ...

New Orleans Saints safety Jairus Byrd named top-3 in NFL

There’s a reason why the Saints were willing to give Byrd a six-year, $56-million contract this offseason, and it certainly wasn’t because of the calming influence he brings to the locker room. Instead, the sometimes-unhappy safety got a big payday because he’s one of the most-versatile players at his position. He has the cover skills to stick with tight ends and wide receivers (see 22 career interceptions), but can also deliver a punch in the run game.

Re: New Orleans Saints safety Jairus Byrd named top-3 in NFL

they were talking about byrd this week here locally, yes he cost the mother load but this guy may be the steal of free agency with what he brings our defense with his cover skills and his ability to make or cause turnovers. we are a defense to be reckoned with, the best on paper for sure.

The article shows him at #2.

BTW: Colston didn't make the top 10 at WR.

Think about it guys. In Rob Ryan's system if he can stay healthy we are talking about a Hall of Fame player on our hands.

BOLD PREDICTION: Byrd wins DPOY sometime in the next 6 seasons

Re: New Orleans Saints safety Jairus Byrd named top-3 in NFL

Who is Cover32? Never heard of him before. I love this ****. Somebody posts an opinion and everyone else sits around either just plain butt hurt, arguing against it, or both. I'm thinking they put names in a hat, pulled'em out, then figured out how to justify each pick. So, if you like arguing opinions, here's some more for ya'll:
Best Saints QB of all time? -We haven't drafted him yet.
Best LB? -We haven't signed him yet.
LB crew that'll throw the Dome Patrol into ancient history? -Just around the bend.
Best all time Saints D? Gonna be here any season now.
See what I'm sayin'?

Re: New Orleans Saints safety Jairus Byrd named top-3 in NFL

he has the stats but i am tentative a bit because of the AFC Easts revolving door at QB the last few years. he will make an impact that i am sure of but i think there will be a slight drop in turnovers he will produce just because he is moving to the NFC south. this will be a solid challenge for him. maybe that challenge is what brought him here.
