Saints News, 3/23/15: Healthy Jairus Byrd Eager to Become Part of the Solution for Saints

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: "The biggest thing I'm looking forward to is just a full offseason. Just being out there, being around the guys, going through everything and just staying healthy," said Byrd, who put a lot of blame for the Saints' 2014 struggles on his own shoulders – or, rather, his back and his knee.
