Byrd has 2 picks and a PBU in first practice back from injury

Forget taking small steps.

New Orleans Saints safety Jairus Byrd has shown up with a vengeance. The Saints' top free-agent acquisition this offseason took the field for a full practice for the first time Tuesday and then Wednesday night he was all over the field.

Byrd, a three-time All-Pro with the Buffalo Bills, showed all of the instincts and big-play ability Wednesday night that made him a must-have during the offseason.

Byrd intercepted two passes and deflected a touchdown pass from Drew Brees to tight end Jimmy Graham to wow the crowd at Mandeville High School while also impressing his teammates and coaches.

"He is another guy who got his hands on a couple of balls, one of them was a really good play," said Saints coach Sean Payton. "That's encouraging.

"It has been a step process, a little bit longer for Jairus. But it's good to have him out there on your team."

Byrd came up with big interception of a pass by backup quarterback Luke McCown in which he looked like a center fielder playing a fly ball. Byrd also got great position on Graham, who has a considerable size advantage, to break up a potential touchdown pass from Brees.

No you got it wrong. Cam and Galette will make him get rid of the ball quicker and Byrd and Vaccaro will feed off that

Bryd IS the QB of the defense. Not really surprised to read this. He has been a legitimate ball hawk since his early days in Buffalo.

Just wait until he shakes the 'rust' off.

Re: Byrd has 2 picks and a PBU in first practice back from injury

"He's someone that covers a lot of ground quickly. He's really smart with his eyes. He's a veteran player that understands formations and where the ball might be going," Saints coach Sean Payton said. "Tonight there were a couple of plays where the quarterbacks just commented, 'Where'd he come from?'"
If that doesn't get you fired up nothing will.
