March 19, 2020 - 2:27 pm

The Buffalo Bills have announced an extension for safety Jordan Poyer, a two-year extension that keeps the 29-year-old safety in Buffalo through the 2022 season.

Poyer came to the Bills in free agency in 2017, where he would help team up with Micah Hyde and Tre'Davious White to help create one of the tougher secondaries to score on in the NFL. In three seasons as a Bill, Poyer has proven to be a ball hawk, bringing in 11 interceptions (one returned for a touchdown) and 5 fumble recoveries. Poyer also has averaged 100 tackles per season, including a career-high 107 in 2019.

Poyer came into the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles as a seventh round selection from Oregon State in the 2013 NFL Draft. Poyer only played in 3 games with the Eagles before spending close to four seasons with the Cleveland Browns. Poyer started a total of 10 games before becoming a full-time starter in Buffalo.
