Over the weekend there was a report by NFL.com’s Ian Rapaport that Miami was expressing interest in impending free agent safety Jairus Byrd. Now there is a report refuting that claim.
Miami Herald Dolphins beat reporter Adam Beasley is reporting that the Dolphins interest in Byrd is a bunch of hooey.
Pump the brakes on the Jairus Byrd-to-Miami talk, people. I’m hearing that’s a smokescreen.

This report is anything but surprising. This is the time of year when agents will do whatever is necessary to drive the price up on their client’s value. Knowing Peter King in his Monday Morning QB column stated that he can’t figure who in the NFL would pay Jairus Byrd his $9M asking price, you can understand why creating the illusion of multiple suitors is important.
