I'm curious by what you mean by that? It's not like he doesn't want to play or that he purposely hid or got himself re-injured so he could collect a free check...

I'd like to see us keep Byrd and make him earn some of that money he stole.

You cant blame Byrd for being hurt. I blame the saints for continually picking up injured players in FA.

I totally agree with ya Q! I want to see us keep him and have him become the player we thought we paid!

Before Byrd landed in NO, he missed a total of 5 games in 5 years. Just had a unfortunate knee injury that takes a lot of time to recover from.

On the positive side, we've added Rankins, JL, St. Nick & Robertson that will be in front of him, not to mention a solid rookie season under the belt for Stephone. Circle back to that 09 season for a second ... Greer, Jenkins, Gay, Porter, McCray did a lot of heavy lifting, allowing Sharper to freelance & use his natural instincts. I think Byrd (when healthy) still have those same traits/ability & natural instincts. I'm expecting a HUGE improvement from JB this season.

At the end of the day, I think Byrd will be better because our TEAM defense has improved (at least on paper) & will step up.

You can't give players like Byrd guaranteed money...
The problem is that you cannot sign or resign free agents without guaranteed money.

For an organization, it's always a dice roll when doling out the guaranteed cash to a proven player. But it's wishful thinking to believe that players who have previously proved their value will accept a "prove it" contract when hitting free agency.

So saying that Saints should not have signed Byrd is one thing. However, there is no way to sign the guy without the guaranteed money because he had already proven his value.

It's pretty even between offense and defense. That sounds promising.

Re: Bobby: Saints very competitive at practice today

I remember last year and 2014 both Bobby and Hokie saying they didn't think there was any way this team would be 500 with the defense they saw in camp.

Nice to hear a different tune from a guy who has shown over the last 2 or 3 seasons that he doesn't wear B&G goggles.
