Draft Scout LaRon Byrd News
05/01/14 - WR Laron Byrd, released by the Cardinals earlier in April, was signed by the Cowboys Thursday.
Byrd (6-foot-4, 220) was originally signed by the Cardinals as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2012. In four games with Arizona in 2012, Byrd had one catch for eight yards. He also made two special teams tackles with Arizona during his two seasons.
Byrd, 24, missed all of last season after suffering a concussion during the preseason.
04/07/14 - WR Laron Byrd was waived by the Cardinals April 4.
12/28/12 - WR LaRon Byrd (knee) has not practiced this week. The team's fourth receiver, Byrd will be replaced by another rookie, Kerry Taylor, on Sunday.
08/12/12 - WR LaRon Byrd, a rookie free agent from Miami, continues to take advantage of every opportunity he's given. Byrd caught three passes for 33 yards against the Chiefs, all coming in the final possession before halftime. Byrd (6-4, 220 pounds) is similar in size to Larry Fitzgerald and rookie Michael Floyd. He's caught the ball well, and his blocking has been decent. Byrd is contending for a spot on the roster as the fifth or sixth receiver. The key for him will be if he can contribute on special teams. That's not an easy thing to do for a tall receiver who isn't accustomed to those duties. Byrd is competing with DeMarco Sampson, who is in his second year, and Stephen Williams, who is in his third, for a roster spot. Byrd hasn't been flawless. He ran the wrong route early in the Chiefs game, resulting in an incompletion.
08/05/12 - WR LaRon Byrd has made an impression in training camp. He's big (6-4, 220) and has shown good hands. It's a tough roster to crack at receiver, however, and Byrd has a long way to go.
