Kevin Byard struggled after he was traded from the Titans to the Eagles on Oct. 23, 2023.

The 30-year-old saw his completion rate allowed go up from 72.7 percent in six games with the Titans to 75.6 percent in his 10 regular season games with the Eagles, and his passer rating allowed went from 99.8 to 103.3.

He gave up completions on 74.6 percent of the passes thrown his way, the highest of his career, and his total passer rating allowed was 102.1, the second-highest of his career.

Nick Shook of NFL.com recently listed Byard as a cut candidate this offseason.

Philly traded for the former All-Pro safety in October … and its secondary only got worse.

Howie Roseman, Nick Sirianni and new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio need to retool this unit as soon as possible, and releasing Byard and his $14.4 million cap hit should be one of the first steps.

The move would open up $13.3 million in cap space, and while Byard is still a starting-caliber player, that money could be invested much more effectively elsewhere.
