Pops in sophomore season
Bynum registered a career-high 81 tackles (49 solo) and added six pass breakups, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries while playing in all 17 regular-season games in 2022.
Bynum doubled his production in pass breakups while nearly tripling his number of tackles from his rookie campaign with Minnesota. The 2021 fourth-round pick saw the majority of his playing time on special teams in the previous season, but he opened the 2022 campaign in an every-down role alongside veteran strong safety Harrison Smith. The 24-year-old Bynum maintained this role throughout the entirety of the campaign after rookie first-round pick Lewis Cine went down with a season-ending fractured leg Week 4. If Cine is back to full health in 2023, Bynum could end up ceding more work in the Minnesota secondary.

Bynum recorded nine tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Packers.
Bynum was the only player on Minnesota's defense who never left the field in last weekend's matchup versus Green Bay, and he also set a new season high with nine tackles in the contest. He's more than likely to continue serving as an every-down safety in Week 18 against Chicago.
