Good payer in Buffalo. Not great. Bad contract in New Orleans.

Let's see how healthy he is when TC starts before we blackball him
Danno, you think he's third best on Defense? IMO I have Cam #1, WestBank #2, and Breaux #3. The reason I put WestBank over Breaux, is because with a healthy WestBank, it will means the defensive coaching can blitz with reckless abandon. I would honestly have Byrd no higher than 7th behind Laurinitis #4, Rankins #5, and Kikaha #6.

I'm not only mixing the Kool-Aid and sugar but drinking it out of a Hefty Mug!! Everything I read about "Rankinstein" says this kid is the real deal!! They say he's quiet, listen's to Coaches and is very business like in his approach. Exactly what we needed in our First Round Pick. Plus he's exactly what we needed. We needed a run stuffing DT who can also apply pressure, "Rankinstein" does that. We also wanted a versatile player who can play in multiple schemes, "Rankinstein" fits that mold. Lastly we needed a kid who would come in ready to work. "Rankinstein" says that he's working to understand the position fully. I've pushed all my chips to the center with our 1st Round Pick. I'm holding 4 ACES.

Let him school the rookie and play Byrd as much as possible. Let Bell get a season under his belt and we can kiss most of Byrds contract buh bye next year.

At this point, like in the Galette situation but for completely different reasons, it's just time to cut bait and move on.

I like the eyeball test myself. Every now and then some pass.

Can Bell play SS? Could be a wicked tandam Bell at SS with Byrd at FS? Unless Byrd's leg want heel I can't see him being let go either.

He's our 3rd best "if 100% healthy"

He was a 3 time pro-bowler and 2nd team All-Pro.

Yes, "if 100% healthy" he's easily in our top 3.

Obviously the "100% healthy" is the hard part.
