Kevin Byard - Titans knew I was skipping OTAs, training on own - ESPN
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Titans safety Kevin Byard was back at the facility for the start of mandatory minicamp on Tuesday after missing the voluntary portion of OTAs.
Byard's absence at all voluntary portions of OTAs was intriguing given how he was asked to take a pay cut back in April and refused. He spoke to the media on Thursday for the first time during the offseason and offered an explanation for his missed time.
"I had already talked to the coaches about training on my own and doing my own thing," Byard said. "There was never any doubt from the coaches on my end that I was going to be here for minicamp and be the same player I've always been."
