Breaking News: Tennessee Titans trade out superstar All-Pro safety

Byard has been a cornerstone of the Titans’ defense since being drafted in 2016.
He recorded nine tackles in his last game against the Colts.
There’s been a lot of excitement in the AFC South ahead of his NFL trade deadline next Tuesday.

The Indianapolis Colts’ rival Tennessee Titans have traded two-time All-Pro safety Kevin Byard to the Philadelphia Eagles.
In exchange for Byard, the Titans received safety Terrell Edmunds and a 2024 fifth- and sixth-round draft pick.

Byard was selected by the Titans in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Over the past eight seasons, Byard has been a leader for the team on and off the field.

In addition to being named team captain in each of his past five seasons, he recorded 674 tackles, 27 interceptions, and 63 pass deflections in his career.
Through six games this season, Byard was third on the team with 47 tackles.
Nine of those players played in the Titans’ 23-16 loss to the Colts in Week 5.

In 15 career games with the Colts, he had 81 tackles, two interceptions, seven pass deflections and one fumble recovery.
His 30-year-old agent joins an Eagles defensive backfield that lost both of its starting safeties from the 2022 free season.

They signed Edmunds in March with the hope that he could fill one of those roles.
Edmunds was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
In five seasons there, he had 410 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, five interceptions and 26 pass deflections.
He started three of the Eagles’ first seven games and recorded 28 tackles and one forced fumble.

The Colts will play the Byerdress Titans in Week 13 at Nissan Stadium.
