Byrd could end up on the path to losing some money this season if he fails to make the Pro Bowl or earn first-team All-NFL honors.
The safety has a provision in his contract that will drop his 2017, 2018 and 2019 salaries by $500,000 if he doesn’t make the Pro Bowl or earn first-team All- NFL honors in 2015 and 2016.
If he only makes one Pro Bowl or earns one first-team selection during 2015 or 2016, his salary will drop by $400,000 in 2017, $300,000 in 2018 and $300,000 in 2019.
Considering Byrd missed three games to start the season, he might have a hard time achieving either of those goals this season.
