Summary

An incredible talent who has been down on luck since departing Buffalo, Jairus Byrd will hope 2016 heralds a new start in his career. Byrd has played just 17 games during the past two seasons for New Orleans, and so far has provided a poor return on investment. The pair of he and Kenny Vaccaro are, on paper at least, a versatile one-two punch at safety. Byrd's injury issues - or poor play - could derail his comeback effort, but it is not too late for him to bounce back. (May 22)

Our View: That's a good sign for Byrd..and for the Saints. His time with New Orleans has been marred by this knee problem, and Byrd has appeared in only 17 of a possible 32 contests with the Saints. The 29-year old needs to stay healthy and start producing like he did years ago when he was with the Bills.
