Saints counting on Jairus Byrd to force turnovers
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Saints signed safety Jairus Byrd to a six-year, $54 million contract. Now they expect him to force turnovers like he did with the Bills. In five seasons, Byrd had 22 interceptions and 11 forced fumbles.

"Every season you guys hear us say, 'Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers.' So you really begin to value those guys," coach Sean Payton said, per ESPN.com. "The ball finds them. [Byrd] is one of those players that seems to be around the ball a lot."

Saints lock up Jairus Byrd long term
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Though they have little room under the cap, the Saints somehow managed to find room for one of the best free agent defenders available. A few hours after free agency opened Tuesday, the team announced the signing of safety Jairus Byrd, the financial terms of which are not yet known.

Byrd has made the Pro Bowl three times in his five-year career, and is coming off a four-interception, 48-tackle season despite playing just 11 games for the Bills last season.

Aaron Williams signing 'independent' from other negotiations
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Bills CEO Russ Brandon said the $26 million contract extension given to safety Aaron Williams is "completely independent" from the team's negotiations with other players, reports ESPN.com. The suggestion is Buffalo still could re-sign safety Jairus Byrd, but that seems highly improbable given Byrd will command top dollar on the open market.
