Jordan Poyer Thanks Buffalo Before His Potential Last Home Game
The Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals will play in what should be one of the most entertaining playoff games in recent memory.
The Bills and Bengals have two of the top quarterbacks in the NFL (Josh Allen, Joe Burrow) and some of the most potent offenses in the NFL.
The Bills defense will have its hands full on Sunday afternoon, trying to defend the likes of Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd; arguably the best wide receiving core in the league.
Bills veteran safety Jordan Poyer will be tasked with helping cover those wide receivers, along with tight end Hayden Hurst. Dean Marlowe is likely the other safety for the Bills on Sunday.
Poyer's contract is up in March and the 31-year-old safety has been in Buffalo since 2017. He signed on the same day as Micah Hyde and the two have been stars in the defensive backfield.
However, there's been talk that Poyer could leave via free agency in 2023, as the Bills are tight against the salary cap and also have to worry about re-signing linebacker Tremaine Edmunds this off-season; along with defensive tackle Ed Oliver in 2024.
Poyer fully recognizes that this Sunday could be his final home game in Orchard Park with the Bills. He took the time on his podcast to say "thank you" to the Buffalo community and Bills fans.
The Bills' salary cap concerns are very real in 2023. At some point they cannot keep everyone. Would Poyer take less money to stay in Buffalo? Problem is that he likely only gets one more contract and it's his right to try and get the most he can.
We will see what happens.
