Jordan Poyer looking for a contract extension in Buffalo

The Bills gave wide receiver Stefon Diggs a contract extension this week and one of Diggs’ teammates would like the team to make the same kind of commitment to him.

Safety Jordan Poyer is heading into the final year of his current contract and he recently hired Drew Rosenhaus as his agent in a move that signaled a desire to open up contract talks with the reigning AFC East champs. Rosenhaus confirmed that is the case this week.

“We have approached the Bills about a contract extension for Jordan, and he would very much like to finish his career in Buffalo,” Rosenhaus said, via Tim Graham of TheAthletic.com.

Poyer was named a first-team All-Pro last season after posting 93 tackles, five interceptions, and three sacks over the course of the regular season. He’s set to make $5.6 million this year with a $10.7 million cap hit that could come down if the two sides are able to agree on a new deal.

  1. He’s worth every penny of his current contract, and depending on what type of new money he’s looking for I can’t see why they wouldn’t wanna extend him

  2. Yeah this guy is awesome in the regular season! When the season is on the line in Kansas City during the playoffs two years in a row, he is MIA with Kelce and Hill blowing past him for a million yards without a defender in sight.

  3. Seems like he has a case for a new deal I mean he was first team all-pro last year.

  4. I saw Hyde all over the place in the post season. Don’t know where Poyer went though….

  5. I understand most Bills fans think Beane is a true wizard and can manipulate the cap effectively. And I believe he can actually reduce the cap hit for Poyer for 2022 with ease when the bulk of compensation is in a signing bonus.
    The problems arise down the road. 2023, and especially 2024 is where that wizardry will be put to the test. It simply is not sustainable.
    Currently, the Bills have $22 mil in cap space for 2023. And that does not include expiring contracts for Tremaine Edmunds and Ed Oliver, both players drafted in the top half of the first round. Even a franchise and a 5th year option exceeds the remaining space, and only delays free agency by a year. It will take another huge signing bonus for Edmunds, with the money pushed down the road.

  6. I’m thinking he’ll have to wait until after the draft, if they extend him at all. Poyer is 31 and may have a hard time reproducing what he did last season.

  7. The cap is going up significantly over the next two seasons and good GM’s that have a team ready to win now are taking advantage of this opportunity. That is all.

  8. He will be traded or this will be his last year in Buffalo. Foolish to spend big on 31 year old strong safety.

  9. Yeah this guy is awesome in the regular season! When the season is on the line in Kansas City during the playoffs two years in a row, he is MIA with Kelce and Hill blowing past him for a million yards without a defender in sight….as a Bills fan I wish I could dispute this, but I can’t

    They also have over 102 million in cap space for 2024. They will move money around to make it all work, just like every other successful team.

    In Beane we trust

    True, but they only have 19 players under contract…so you have 102M to buy 34+ guys. Its 3M a player, not a lot in NFL terms.

  12. The cap is going up significantly over the next two seasons and good GM’s that have a team ready to win now are taking advantage of this opportunity. That is all.

    Overthecap is already assuming the cap is going to be $225M in 2023 and 256M in 2024. Do you know they are going up more than that for sure?

    Maybe. The only thing I know is that I’m not losing any sleep over it this season.

    As long as the Bills have Allen, Buffalo will be a prime destination for good players. The way Beane is working the cap is sort of unlike anything I’ve ever seen – certainly in Buffalo. He’ll figure it out.

  14. For all the Bills fans downvoting the cap implications here:

    Best case scenario has the 2023 cap @ $225million.

    The cap hit for Allen, Von Miller & Diggs alone will be about $80m next year. 3 guys, 35% of the cap. The Bills will need to fit the other 48 players in the remaining 65%.

    This is a VERY top heavy roster.

    They are in win now mode, but it will come at the cost of 2-3 years of relying on internally developed talent to bridge the gap while these contracts play out and get renegotiated. Just hope Beane drafts well, and stockpiles picks.

  15. Let me be the one to break the bad news. You are not going to get a new contract, and we have already seen how well you do against Hill. He just so happens to be in our division now, so thanks but no thanks.

  16. Beane is a master! It will get done when it’s time to get it done. Just be patient.

  17. Tre White is coming back from injury. ( He was not there for the playoff game against KC)
    During the regular season victory over KC , White held Hill to 63 yards.

  19. Get em all done now, the cap will raise significantly next 2 years. There is no cap hell when you have a top GM. Only suckers get caught in cap hell.

  20. “lol!!

    This is great!”

    Uh huh. Look closer at 2024. No Diggs included? Do you see how many players are actually under contract in 2024? Yes, it’s for 19 players. The salary cap is for the top 51. And 8 of those 19 are on a low end minimum deal that is under $2 mil each. Later round draft picks and UFA, usually. And Diggs cap hit isn’t even there yet.
    Now to put that into perspective, the cap charge for Allen, Miller, and Diggs will account for between $90 to $100 million of a projected cap of $255 mil. Almost 40% for 3 players.

    Not hating. Just stating what is published.

  22. Welcome back to the 1990’S New England patriots

    You do realize they played in a SB in the 90’s?

  23. How don’t people understand the cap is going to keep rising. The only reason buffalo had a cap issue is because the cap didn’t rise like it should have do in part to covid. But then again I’m not a salary cap expert.

  24. Beane putting on a GM clinic on how to work the cap and build a machine for years to come.
