Bills Tweet Might Indicate That Jordan Poyer Is Leaving Buffalo
The NFL off-season is officially here, after the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl 57 on Sunday night.
The next to-do on the calendar is the NFL Scouting Combine, which will take place in late February and then we have the start of free agency in the middle of March. The NFL Draft will be the last Thursday through Saturday of April.
The Buffalo Bills had a very disappointing ending to the season, losing to the Cincinnati Bengals in a blowout loss in the AFC Divisional round.
Many fans and media members have similar ideas on what the Bills have to improve on, before entering the 2023 season. Positions like wide receiver, offensive line and safety seem like obvious positions to address.
The Bills have to worry about trying to re-sign some of their own players too. Tremaine Edmunds, Devin Singletary, Jamison Crowder, Jordan Phillips and Case Keenum are just a few big names who are set to become free agents in March.
That list also includes star safety Jordan Poyer, who is looking for a new contract. There's low optimism the Bills will be able to bring him back, simply looking at the salary cap limitations and what Poyer might command on the open market.
This tweet after the end of last night's Super Bowl might indicate they will move on from Poyer, or at least are not comfortable enough to put Poyer in their look for next season.
I think Poyer is gone. His age (31) might be a factor as well. The Bills have to sink some resources into the offense this spring. They won't prefer taking away from the defense, but they have to find wide receivers who can get open and lineman who can consistently protect Josh Allen.
