Micah Hyde

This offseason, it seemed likely that they were going to lose one half of their starting safety duo from the past six seasons with Jordan Poyer set to be a free agent. They were able to agree to a new deal with him but next offseason they face the possibility of losing the other half with Micah Hyde entering the final year of his deal.

Hyde joined the Bills the same year as Poyer as a free agent and these two have been one of the best safety duos in the league during that time. This past season, Hyde missed most of the season due to a neck injury and his absence was certainly notable.

He will be 33 years old at the end of this season, and similar to DaQuan Jones, is getting towards the end of his career. However, he is still playing at a very high level and it wouldn't be surprising to see the Bills try to reach a one-year extension this offseason to keep Poyer and Hyde with the team through the 2024 season.

If they don't reach a new deal before the 2023 season, a short-term deal would make a lot of sense for both sides.

Projection: Buffalo Bills sign Micah Hyde to a short-term deal
