It would appear the Buffalo Bills are poised to lose one starting safety this offseason with Jordan Poyer set to enter free agency. He certainly is going to be a tough player to replace but thankfully the Buffalo Bills do still have the other half of their safety duo under contract for the 2023 season in Micah Hyde.
This past season Hyde missed most of the season due to neck surgery after suffering an injury against the Tennessee Titans in Week 2. However, there was a chance he could have returned this season as he was medically cleared and would have returned if the Bills made it to the AFC Championship Game, according to WGR550’s Sal Capaccio.
The veteran safety is now entering the final year of a two-year contract extension that he signed in 2021 and has a cap hit of over $10.5 million for this season. However, if the Buffalo Bills and Hyde can agree to another two-year extension it could keep Hyde in Buffalo potentially through the end of his career and also create some cap space for this season.
