1. Kevin Byard, Safety

There have been rumblings about a potential Kevin Byard cut or trade going back to the offseason, and at this point, both sides might be ready to move on.

Byard has been a leader in the locker room, a star on the field, and he has been a team player when it comes to adjusting his contract. While Mike Vrabel might praise that, he didn't exactly go to bat for him his offseason which led to a reduced contract for the "Mayor of Murfreesboro" and a very public dispute for a team that likes to do their contract talks behind closed doors.

Kevin Byard has had a solid season with no glaring errors, but he just isn't the impact player that people think about when they hear his name. Maybe that is the scheme and he is being asked to be a very vanilla defender, but it isn't doing anyone any favors.

Teams like the Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, and the San Francisco 49ers seem like good fits for Kevin Byard for a mid-round pick.
