Jordan Poyer

Another key part of the secondary for the Buffalo Bills with Sean McDermott as head coach has been the safety duo of Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde. However, that era appears set to close as Hyde will be a free agent this offseason and it doesn't seem likely the Bills will try to bring him back.

As for Jordan Poyer, he is under contract through the 2024 season after signing a two-year contract last offseason. If the Bills were to release him, it would save $5.47 million in cap space with only $2 million in dead cap.

The organization may want to look to have a clean start at the position and could still release Poyer. However, keeping a veteran like Poyer, who knows this defense better than anyone, to mentor a new starting safety could be a great way to approach the position this upcoming season.
