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.
