The Bills and Pro Bowl safety Jordan Poyer have agreed to terms on a two-year contract to keep him in Buffalo. Poyer, who joined the Bills in 2017, has been one of the star defensive players in the league over the last several seasons.

In 2021, Poyer was named to his first NFL All-Pro selection as he tied a career-high of five interceptions. Poyer followed that up in 2022 with four interceptions, eight passes defensed, one forced fumble and 63 total tackles in 12 games played, helping him earn a Pro Bowl selection.

The 2022 season spoke volumes about Poyer's commitment as he dealt with several injuries during the year. Poyer famously drove from Buffalo to Kansas City and back for the Bills Week 6 game against the Chiefs due to a rib injury that kept him from flying.

Bills GM Brandon Beane said at the start of the team's offseason they hoped to keep Poyer playing in Buffalo.

"I give Jordan a lot of credit. And he is a pro. I know the whole contract thing and like, people can handle those in many different ways. We all see that. But a lot of respect for how Jordan handled this and he's a great pro and did a lot of great things for us and we'd love to get him back, for sure. I'd be the first to tell you," Beane said in January.

Poyer's signing means he will reunite with fellow safety Micah Hyde to anchor the Bills secondary in 2023 after Hyde missed most of last season with a neck injury. The Bills went 13-3 during the regular season and won the AFC East for a third-straight season.

Additionally, the Bills have made the NFL Playoffs five times during Poyer's time in Buffalo and have ranked as a top five scoring defense in three of the past four seasons.

Since becoming a Bill in 2017, Poyer is the only NFL player to have 500+ tackles, 20+ INTs and 10+ sacks. His 22 INTs during that span rank fifth in the NFL, nine of which have come in the last two seasons.
