Restructure for Byrd?

The Saints could restructure FS Jairus Byrdís contract.

Byrdís $6 million salary is fully guaranteed, but the Saints might look to reduce his $10.9 million cap hit. It would be the second straight year Byrd's contract was reworked after he converted his roster bonus into a signing bonus last season. Byrd has played in just 17 games the past two years.

Re: Restructure for Byrd?

I don't think we touch that contract again so next year it will be easy to make a decision on Byrd. Only 3,4mil dead money in 2017. Either he performs like one of the elite safeties or he is gone. I won't be surprised if we draft safety this year in first 2-3 rounds...

More cap space is cool and all, but I'd rather cut him after this season with less dead money.

I have to agree with Bree84. Do not back ourselves any further into a hole with Byrd.

We have a punter that needs to rework his deal first IMO

I don't get people being against paying the only guy on special teams that's performing well. In spite of McMahon.

If healthy, he's better than anyone else on the Saints roster at the position or in the draft. I keep having hopes for Sunseri. But, he can't stay healthy either.

No one is against paying a punter what he is worth but we are against paying an above avg. one the most in NFL history. No way he is worth 5 million a year.

Byrd has been an absolute pathetic pickup
Not counting when he was injured

He is never anywhere near the ball
Doesn't coverge over the top on a deep play
When he actually gets in position and has a shot he misses
In the Colts game last year he was turned around 3 times for a score

The only time you see him is when someone is already tackled he runs up to touch them, trying to add to his stats?

Just pathetic

The colts game was Delvin Breaux not Byrd

Delvin Breaux flat out tripped on the first long TD
Got turned around and then tripped on the second TD

But, but, but, he's been almost the best defensive player we've had too!
