He was an all-pro for the Titans in both 2017 and 2021, leading the NFL in intercpetions in 2017.

They will save around $14 million in cap space by releasing Byard, giving them about $47 million in cap space in a year where there is some solid talent at the safety position.

The team currently has Reed Blankenship and Tristin McCollum, who signed a reserve/future contract at safety and Sydney Brown recovering from a ACL injury.
