These are the top three questions for the Buffalo Bills at safety entering training camp.

Even with the New York Jets trading away Jamal Adams, the AFC East has some of the best safeties in the league and Buffalo Bills tandem of Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer are in that discussion. These two players are entering their fourth year together and this offseason was named the best duo by Touchdown Wire.

The Buffalo Bills understand the value that Hyde and Poyer bring to this defense and ensured that the two would stay together at least through the 2021 season as the Bills agreed to a contract extension with Poyer this offseason. He is now signed through the 2022 season while Hyde has two years left on his original free agent contract signed in 2017.

The question mark for the Buffalo Bills lies behind the team’s two starting safeties. The players on the roster after these two are really untested. This is where the questions are going to lie for this position group entering the upcoming 2020 season.
