Just saw the contract.

Jesus. Byrd is a great safety and everything, but he's not worth THAT. Laughing

Saints are in for a looooooad of trouble in a couple years with the way their GM keeps trying to push money back. Think the Jets a couple years ago except way worse.


Yea can't wait to see what they do when Cam Jordan is up. They're steal trying to lock up Jimmy also.

It's reported that the Bills offered 7.5 for Byrd while the Saints got him for 9 million.

I love the Graham signing but with him making 4 mil a year and Chris Williams making 5 mil (I live in Chicago and Bears fans have gave me so much crap for this signing), it's hard to believe that we used the money right.

Would you rather spend $9 million on:

Corey Graham & Chris Williams

or

Jairus Byrd


What did we have starting caliber depth at? Safety.

What DIDN'T we have starting caliber depth at? Corner and Guard.

Not hard to figure out why we chose what we did.
IF these guys were similar caliber players I would agree. They aren't. We got a couple fringe starters and lost an all pro type player. I would much rather have spend the same money on Byrd than the players we got. A real head scratching free agency period for us thus far IMO.

Hopefully Whaley/Marrone know what they are doing. Hopefully these guys have a Hughes like jump in production with us. Still, based on their histories in the league I don't think they are worth any where near the contracts they have been given.

Conversely, I figured Byrd would get about $9M/yr. He is that caliber of player. He has a nose for the ball and creates turnovers. He also does these things without taking a lot of chances that gets him beat often.

He got paid and he went to a contender, I don't blame him.
