Last year, the Buffalo Bills had five players make the Pro Bowl, including Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs. Those two players earned their first career trip to the Pro Bowl.

This season, the Bills have a number of players who could join Allen and Diggs as players earning their first career Pro Bowl nod starting with a player who should have made it last year.

Jordan Poyer

The Buffalo Bills starting safeties have been a strength of this defense for a few years now and the fact that Jordan Poyer still hasn’t earned a Pro Bowl nomination is surprising. Since joining the Bills in 2017, Poyer has had 95 or more tackles every season, including a career-high of 124 this past season. That total led all safeties last year in that category.

He also has 13 interceptions, 27 passes defended, and seven sacks during this four year stretch with the Bills.

Jordan Poyer has been a key part of this secondary, a group that has typically ranked near the top of the league in pass defense, and this should be the season that he finally earns that first Pro Bowl nomination.
