With it looking like a virtual lock that Jairus Byrd will hit the free agent market, there are reportedly other NFL clubs inquiring about the Pro Bowl safety.
According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapaport the St. Louis Rams were one team that showed exploratory interest in Byrd this weekend.

What makes the reported inquiry by the Rams interesting is the fact that Byrd grew up in Missouri. So in a way if St. Louis came to the table with a bona fide offer it would be an opportunity for him to return home.
Beginning at noon on Saturday NFL teams were allowed to contact agents of prospective free agents players. Contracts with new clubs however, cannot be signed until after 4 pm on Tuesday.
