Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer has been named a first-team All-Pro by the Associated Press in his fifth season with the Bills.

This is Poyer's first All-Pro selection in his nine-year career and is the first Bills' safety to be named to the list since Henry Jones in 1992.

Poyer finished the regular season with the second-highest number of total tackles on the team (91), five interceptions (T-4 in NFL), 3.0 sacks, nine pass breakups, and eight tackles for loss. He was the only player in the NFL this season to have 3.0 sacks and five interceptions.

Since joining the Bills in 2017, Poyer is the only NFL player to have 500+ tackles, 15+ INTs (18) and 10+ sacks (10). His 18 INTs are sixth in NFL in that time span. He is the only NFL player with 90+ tackles and 2+ INTs in each of the last five seasons.

Poyer was one of the leaders of this Bills defense that ranked first in total defense (272.8 YPG), yards per play (4.6 yards), passing yards allowed (163 YPG), passing yards per play (4.65), first downs allowed per game (16.7), third-down conversion rate allowed (30.8%) and points per game (17).
