“I don’t know why they were targeted,” he added, describing the unnamed couple as “two really good officers assigned to our Neighborhood Response Team.”

So on Aug. 23, a day before their baby’s due date, the Titans safety had to deliver his newborn son at his home in Nashville. Byard on Wednesday explained how the harrowing experience unfolded, beginning with his wife, Clarke, waking him up at 10:30 p.m. with contractions that quickly grew in intensity.
