Saints restructure contract for safety Jairus Byrd
by Igor Mello |

The Saints have restructured the contract for safety Jairus Byrd, as they move closer to getting under the 2015 salary cap, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

New Orleans cleared $4.8 million of cap space by converting Byrd's $6 million roster bonus into a signing bonus. His cap number also dropped from $10.3 million to $5.5 million with the restructure.

Byrd, 28, signed a six-year, $54 million deal with the Saints in 2013, but has missed 17 games over the past two seasons. He announced Wednesday that he's officially cleared for the 2015 season, after having surgery last October to fix a torn meniscus in his knee.

by Chris Cwik |

Saints safety Jairus Byrd underwent season-ending knee surgery Friday, according to the Seattle Times.

Byrd was placed on season-ending IR earlier in the day. He injured himself in practice Thursday. Coach Sean Payton said the team doesn't believe Byrd will be limited at the start of next season. "The good news is the repair went well, and it’s something that, with the right rehab and treatment, there should be no carryover effect," Payton said.
