The New Orleans Saints reached agreement with former Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd on a six-year, $54 million deal that includes $28 million guaranteed, sources told ESPN's Josina Anderson and ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
The Saints announced the six-year deal Tuesday night, but not confirm the terms.
"We had hoped for the opportunity to pursue Jairus Byrd," Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said in a statement. "After meeting with him, we are excited that he will become a member of the New Orleans Saints. We think that his play-making abilities will be an excellent fit with what we are trying to accomplish with our defense and in our secondary."
