Spot on.
Good punter, and seems like a good guy and all that, but he is not top 5 anymore. Statistically he is not even top ten

It is not that it is just logical when you look at the deal for both parties. Besides I would rather get stuck with Morstead for another year contract wise than paint myself into a corner and get stuck with Byrd for another year because I re did his deal. I would think the saints would want to keep all options team friendly when it comes to Byrd.

Byrd had 22 interceptions in his first 5 years. Funny how he comes to New Orleans and plays like ****, when in Buffalo he was a ball hawk. System? Maybe. Malcolm Jenkins might think so.

Bring him closer to the line and let him jump crossing routes

Playing centerfield is doing absolutely nothing!

He came here injured too. We'll see what happens to him this year.

Re: Restructure for Byrd?

I have a good feeling about Byrd this year, I think we had some obvious secondary problems last year, and I think Byrd often tried to adjust to fix holes in the defense which made him look out of place. I have a feeling this will be the year he lives up to the rep.

I agree. Byrd was too busy keeping a lazy eye on #39. Kind of hard to freelance when you know the play was coming his way.

Byrd will definitely restructure now, along with Drew of course.
