Monday Morning Quarterback columnist Peter King provided his free agency primer on his site Monday morning. He commented on Jairus Byrd’s impending foray into free agency effective Tuesday at 4 pm. However, he doesn’t see how any NFL club would fork over the reported $9M per season Byrd is seeking in a new deal.
Here’s what King briefly wrote in his MMQB column on Byrd.
5. Jairus Byrd’s landing spot? A secret. He wants $9 million a year, and I can’t figure out who will pay a safety that much.
All it takes is one team to meet his asking price. Then again there are a good number of teams that deem other positions on defense like defensive end and cornerback as more critical to a unit’s success than safety. Only time will tell if Byrd gets what he wants.
