Saints Sign Jairus Byrd

One of the best safeties in the league is heading to New Orleans. Jairus Byrd previously played with the Buffalo Bills but he has signed a six year deal, worth $54 mil.

One of the league's elite center fielders, Byrd is going to have ample opportunity to make plays behind DC Rob Ryan's blitzing, aggressive 3-4 front. He has 22 career picks and 11 forced fumbles across 73 games. Byrd's foot issues from 2013 are a minor concern, but he appeared in all 16 games from 2010-12. He is still only 27.
 This is a great signing for the Saints who now have a leader to tighten up their secondary.
