Jordan Poyer Doesn’t Like the Taxes in New York State
The start of NFL free agency begins on March 15th at 4 pm, EST. That's when free agents, who have expiring contracts in 2023, can negotiate and sign with any team. The start of free agency marks the beginning of a new league year.
The Buffalo Bills have still not re-signed any of their pending free agents, which includes safety Jordan Poyer.
The 31-year-old safety will enter free agency as one of the hottest commodities on the defensive side of the ball. Despite the fact Poyer will be 32 years old in April, his play has not yet fallen off and has been an important part of the Sean McDermott defense since he signed with the franchise in 2017.
The problem is the Bills are over the salary cap and likely will have to make choices with his to allocate money, which means Poyer is likely gone.
It sounds like Poyer is accepting that reality and recently shared that New York state is not exactly his favorite state to live in.
Poyer said last week on his podcast that he has pondered where he would want to go, if it cannot be in Buffalo. Poyer admits that he does not want to" live in a state that takes half my money."
Poyer said that has nothing to do with the City of Buffalo or the Bills, but unfortunately state taxes are something everyone has to deal with.
Poyer also said it would be nice to see the sun, at least once a week.
It does not sound like he will be back in Buffalo.
