Byrd signs with New Orleans

  • Text size: + -

Jairus Byrd's time with the Bills is now officially over. The safety is now a member of the Saints.

On the first day of free agency, Byrd signed a six-year deal with New Orleans.

A three-time Pro Bowler with the Bills, Byrd was franchise tagged last season. This year, the Bills tried to offer the safety a long term deal, but Byrd wanted to test the open market.

The Saints were not really in the Byrd discussion until after free agency started.
