Titans S Kevin Byard celebrates interception by posing on Cowboys star at midfield

The Titans clearly think a lot of safety Kevin Byard.

Tennessee gave Byard a five-year, $70.5 million extension with $31 million in guarantees, according to a report from ESPN, which cites unidentified league sources.

If the report is indeed true, Byard surpasses Redskins safety Landon Collins and Ravens safety Earl Thomas as the highest-paid safety in NFL history.

Byard, 25, was a third-round pick out of Middle Tennessee State in 2016.

He has made one Pro Bowl and one All-Pro team in his three NFL seasons.

He had eight interceptions in 2017 and four more in 2018 while totaling 228 total tackles in his first three seasons combined.
