The Buffalo Bills haven’t added any new talent through the first seven hours of free agency, but they’ve already lost their marquee free agent from their 2013 roster. Jairus Byrd, a three-time Pro Bowl free safety who the Bills opted against franchise tagging for a second consecutive year, has been signed to a six-year contract by the New Orleans Saints.

According to a tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Byrd’s contract is worth $54 million total with $28 million guaranteed. While the year-to-year structure of the deal remained unreported as of midnight Wednesday, his total contract value, guaranteed money and per-year salary all rank highest among all NFL safeties (and as such, are all-time records for the position), according to Spotrac.
