Odd communication rules for Jairus Byrd and dad

J. Byrd Posted by Andy Benoit

Gill Byrd is the defensive backs coach for the Chicago Bears and father of Bills safety Jairus Byrd. The rules of the lockout prevent coaches from speaking to players. But preventing a father from speaking to his son is absurd (right?), so the NFL came up with an only slightly absurd solution: logging the conversation.

"(My dad) has to report it and write down what we talked about and whatever," Jairus Byrd told ESPN.com’s Tim Graham. "I don't have to jot anything down, though. To me, I just talk to him like I always have. That's his problem."

Good thing Jairus is well past the age of receiving the birds and bees talk. Can you imagine having to give your employer a log of that discussion?
