The Philadelphia Eagles are acquiring safety Kevin Byard from the Tennessee Titans, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
The Eagles will send fifth- and sixth-round selections in 2024, as well as safety Terrell Edmunds, in exchange for Byard, according to The Athletic’s Dianna Russini.
Byard has appeared in 120 games since being drafted by the Titans in the third round in 2016. The 30-year-old established himself as one of the NFL’s most consistent safeties, having recorded 27 career interceptions, including a league-high eight in 2017.
He’s also earned two Pro Bowl berths and two first-team All-Pro nods during that spell.
The safety position has been a priority for the Eagles this year after the team lost C.J. Gardner-Johnson, Marcus Epps, and K’Von Wallace in the offseason. Philly signed Edmunds in March, but the former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive back lacked consistency with Philadelphia.
