Saints designate Byrd as post-June 1 release

Kristian Garic reporting

The Saints will designate ex-safety Jairus Byrd as a post June 1 transaction/release on the league's transaction report tomorrow, therefore saving some money against the cap and taking less of a hit on the salary cap. B

yrd wrapped up three disappointing seasons in New Orleans after signing  a monster deal in 2014 hours into free agency.  The designation gives the Saints an addition $7.8 million dollars against the salary cap this year.  The move also allows the Saints to spread the $8 million dollar cap hit from Byrd out over the next three seasons. Wise financial play by the black and gold.
