The Philadelphia Eagles recently traded for Kevin Byard from the Tennessee Titans.
Byard is an eight-year NFL veteran who is slated to fit in nicely into the Eagles’ secondary.
He has spent his entire career with the Titans, and while joining a new team can be difficult, Byard seems to be embracing the change.
In a transcript shared from the Eagles website via ProFootball Talk, Byard said, “This team has a great culture and I’m just trying to add to that.”

Byard also added, “It feels good to wake up 6-1.”
This seems to be a win-win scenario for both parties.
The Eagles now have Byard on their roster, who will be a welcomed addition to their secondary, if for nothing else besides additional depth.
Byard not only joins a new team with championship aspirations, but he goes away from the Titans who still seem a few years away from contending for the Super Bowl.
The Eagles’ next game is against the Washington Commanders.
Pending an unforeseen setback, Byard is slated to make his Eagles debut in this game, hoping to show his teammates that he is ready to make a massive impact on their defense.
Byard joins a safety room with Reed Blankenship and Sydney Brown, who have 2.5 years of combined NFL experience.
He will not only help the Eagles’ on-field performances, but his veteran presence in the locker room should be a bonus for young players like Blankenship and Brown.
