UNDER PRESSURE: Saints Send Byrd a Not-So-Subtle Message

The 2016 Saints regular season will also be Year 3 of starting free safety Jairus Byrdís huge six year contract that Mickey Loomis and the Saints gave him on March 11th, 2014.

That contract of course was for $56 million dollars, $28 million of it (as Saints fans will quickly remind you) which is guaranteed.

However, with the selection of All-American and Ohio State safety Vonn Bell ó whom the Saints made a Day 2 trade with the New England Patriots to move up to get ó the Saints appear to have sent Byrd a not-so-subtle message: itís time you give us some return on our investment.

Wishing the best for Byrd this upcoming season. With the key FA acquisitions on the line, LB's, #1 draft selection & hopefully healthy corners ....

Ball hawking JB should have no excuse for 2016. Oh and #39 is no longer on the roster.

Byrd may fly if he doesn't answer the Bell.

it may sound goofy but that pick Byrd had lined up on the crazy D. Walker TD would have got him going if the corner didn't knock him off the ball. It was basically in his hands.

I remember watching that play and never understood why one of them didn't concede to the other. That was definitely a game we should have won. If only we had gotten at least 1 stop in the 2nd half.

Re: UNDER PRESSURE: Saints Send Byrd a Not-So-Subtle Message

They aren't giving him a hint of anything. He is obligated to another year and after that his stock falls no matter what happens in the future. I doubt they had any intention of resigning him anyway. Von will be ready to go by the time the contract is up. The Saints have all the leverage on Byrd now. No way he can try and argue a big extension. If anything he may get close to league minimum based on his age and injury status.
