With arguably the best safety duo in the whole NFL over the last few years, Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer have been the catalysts for the defense from the safety position. Jaquan Johnson and Dean Marlowe have been reliable backups at the position, with Johnson having a standout game in his first ever start in Week 17 versus the Jets last year.
Hyde finished a strong 2019 campaign with 72 tackles, 1 interception and 2 forced fumbles, continuing to be a standout at the Free Safety position. Poyer accumulated 107 tackles alongside 1 sack, 2 interceptions and 4 forced fumbles. Both had great 2019 seasons and should continue that momentum into next season.
The primary backups Johnson and Marlowe offer good depth, the Buffalo Bills are very high on Johnson and he might find more time on the field than last year. Josh Thomas and Garrett Taylor are two UDFA players from this offseason and they are most likely going to be contending for a spot on the practice squad.
With Hyde and Poyer playing almost every snap on defense, as long as they stay healthy the Bills will boast great talent at the Safety position.
