Report: S Jairus Byrd to visit New Orleans Saints

March 11, 2014 Updated Mar 11, 2014 at 8:07 PM EDT

Buffalo (WKBW) Safety Jairus Byrd hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent on Tuesday and his first visit will reportedly be with the New Orleans Saints.

Multiple reports say that Byrd is headed to the "Big Easy" to meet with Saints officials with the NFL Free Agency period underway.

The Buffalo Bills were interested in re-signing Byrd but the team was unable to negotiate a long-term contract with the three-time Pro Bowl safety. The Bills also decided not to use the franchise tag on Byrd for a second straight year.
