    News

    Byard agreed Wednesday with the Titans on a five-year, $70.5 million contract extension, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Impact

    The contract will make Byard the highest-paid safety in NFL history in terms of annual average value ($14.1 million). The 25-year-old certainly merited the lavish contract based on production, as gathered 90 tackles (59 solo) and four interceptions in 2018 in what amounted to a strong follow-up effort from his breakthrough 87-tackle, eight-pick effort in 2017. In an era with many emerging standout safeties, Byard may be the unchallenged leader of them all when it comes to playmaking ability in coverage.
