I heard on moving the chains on Sirius that he's not playing. Can anyone confirm?

Isn't Jairus Byrd his backup? Wish Whitner was good to go since Byrd's got 5 picks already this season.

This guy surprises me quite a bit.
I was scouting Patrick Chung at Oregon at safety.

Byrd was their CB, but they projected him at safety in the NFL due to his lack of straight-line speed.

He looks faster as compared with his time speed though. (4.60s)
Dude is only 5'10-5'11 206 lbs but he's really aggressive and physical.

I have no idea he adapts so quickly to the change of position.
His Ints were kinda lucky, being in the right place at the right time; bad decisions by QBs. But he looks like a ball hawk, I just finish watching all the Bills game.

Schaub would better not force the ball into double coverage.

Byrd is also the son of the old Chargers CB Gill Byrd. The only reason I know the name Gill Byrd is because of Tecmo Super Bowl, that dude always led the NFL in INT's on the game!

I'd take some lucky picks if we could get them. We probably lead the league in dropped INTs.
