All-Pro safety Jordan Poyer not at start of Bills’ OTAs

Fresh off of perhaps his best NFL season, Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer is looking to be paid like the All-Pro player he was in 2021 before he rejoins his teammates this offseason.

During his age-30 season last year, Poyer posted 93 tackles, nine passes defended, eight tackles for loss and tied for his career high with five interceptions, while adding a career-high 3.0 sacks as well. Last month, Bills head coach Sean McDermott indicated his desire for Poyer to stay in Western New York.

The Oregon St. product was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft, but played just three games with the team before being acquired off of waivers in October of that year by the Cleveland Browns. Poyer played with Cleveland from 2014 to 2016, before joining Buffalo ahead of the 2017 season.

During his first season with the Bills, he recorded 95 tackles, a career-high 13 pass defended, five interceptions (including one pick-six) and 2.0 sacks. Poyer was solid again in 2018 and 2019, registering over 100 tackles in both seasons, as well as six more interceptions and 3.0 sacks combined and a career best four fumble recoveries in 2019.

In 2020, Poyer put up a career-high 124 tackles in the regular season and continued his success in the playoffs, racking up 20 more tackles in the team’s three postseason games.
