Bills FS Jairus Byrd has been named to the Sporting News All-Midseason Team.
Every year The Sporting News names their All-Midseason Team based on who has had the best first half season. Byrd with seven interceptions in his last four starts got the nod as one of the starting safeties on defense. He was joined by New Orleans S Darren Sharper, who is right behind him in the INT category.
It’ll be interesting to see if Byrd can continue his torrid pace of takeaways in the second half of the season. He needs only four more INTs this season to break the team record of 10 set by Billy Atkins (1961) and Tom Janik (1967).
