Summary

The first season of his multi-million dollar free agent contract in New Orleans couldn't have gone much worse for Jairus Byrd. Picked on often in coverage and a liability in run defense, a torn lateral meniscus early in the season was the nail in the coffin. Byrd's deal will presumably mean he'll have every chance to redeem himself in 2015 and is slated to start at free safety. However, Byrd has seen a steady decline in production since his best season 2011 and is a buyer beware for fantasy owners. The word out of Saints organized team activities is that Byrd (knee) is looking good in his recovery from his meniscus tear. (June 5)
