Jordan Poyer (2017 – Current)

Jordan Poyer came to the Buffalo Bills in 2017 on a free agent deal and was immediately inserted into the starting lineup, along side Micah Hyde.  Poyer was originally drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL draft and was selected with the 218th overall pick in the seventh round.

Now, before anyone tells me I don’t know football, let’s make it known I am very much aware that Poyer has most recently played strong safety but he’s played both, so we went with free safety for this article.

After being drafted by the Eagles, he played in just three games before being waived and was picked up by the Cleveland Browns, where he remained through the 2016 season.  Poyer was finally getting starting time with the Browns in 2016, when he started six games before falling to injury and placed on IR.  Poyer opted for free agency and joined the Bills in 2017.

He currently has 22 career interceptions with Buffalo, placing him tenth all-time and 582 combined tackles with 44 passes defenses.  In 2021, Poyer was voted a first-team All-Pro and also made the Pro Bowl roster in 2022.
