Note to Green Bay Packers: Here Are the Top Free Agent Safeties
Jairus Byrd, Buffalo (6-0, 205)
48 tackles, 4 INTs, 1 sack, 1 FF
Byrd has been in the league five years and he’s been a Pro Bowler for three of them. Although his 2013 stat line might not look terribly impressive, he compiled those stats in 11 games. Byrd has 22 career interceptions. He’s returned two of them for touchdowns. Byrd can tackle and he can cover, something we’re not sure any of the Packers safeties can do. Byrd is going to command top dollar if he reaches free agency, so unfortunately, there’s probably zero chance of the Packers signing him.
