Byrd said that a big part of the reason he decided to join the Saints was that they had a strong combination of tight defense along with some surprising plays from Ryan.
"To have that ability with an offense that's gonna put up points and a stingy defense like that and exotic in the way coach Ryan calls things, it's unorthodox, it's gonna keep people guessing," Byrd told ESPN. "That combination right there was enough.
"Look, [Ryan] has some stuff in his head that he's gonna get out one way or the other."
The Saints finished last season with an 11–5 record.
