Performance Splits: 2020 to 2022
Career Stats by Season: 2016 to 2022
Byard recorded nine tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 16-15 loss to the Saints.
Byard found himself in the familiar position of pacing the Titans in tackles while also being on the field for every defensive snap. He's played a significant role in the Tennessee defense across the last six seasons and that looks to be the case again in 2023.
Byard and the Titans agreed on a reworked contract Friday, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.
Byard's base salary for 2023 will drop from $14.1 million to $11 million with the opportunity to earn back the money in incentives. The freed up cap space will allow the Titans to bring in wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who agreed on a deal with the team this past weekend. Byard has been a fixture in the team's secondary since 2016 and he compiled 108 tackles, six pass deflections and four interceptions while playing in all 17 of Tennessee's contests last season.
Byard finished the 2022 season with 108 tackles, four interceptions and an additional two defensed passes across 17 games.
Byard remained a stalwart in the Titans' secondary this past season, and he has yet to miss a game in his seven-season career. He's topped 1,000 defensive snaps in six of those campaigns and has picked off at least four passes on five occasions. Byard will enter 2023 with two years remaining on his contract with the Titans and figures to remain a key contributor.
