The Bills have elected nine players to serve as team captains for the 2022 season, for a new team-high in the Sean McDermott era.
For the offense, quarterback Josh Allen will serve as captain for the fourth consecutive season and wide receiver Stefon Diggs will be in this role for his second consecutive season. Center Mitch Morse, a new face to the group of captains, will be in this position for the first time in his Bills career.
Returning as captains for the defense are linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, and safeties Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde. Edmunds is serving as a captain for a fourth straight year, Poyer for a third straight year, and Hyde for his second consecutive season. In his first season with the Bills, outside linebacker Von Miller will be the fourth defensive captain this year.
