The Buffalo Bills have a budding defensive superstar on their hands.
Jordan Poyer was one of the Bills’ best players this season and makes an instant impact whenever he steps on the field.
Jordan Poyer’s season:
-Played on final year of contract
-Hyperextended elbow in camp
-Fractured two ribs
-Drove 15 hours to play in KC
-Played with a torn meniscus
The Bills were 13-1 in games he played

Not only were the Bills 13-1 in games that Poyer played, but he has shown that he is a true team player, and has worked tirelessly to ensure that he is on the field whenever possible.
This tireless work was on display in mid-October, when the Bills were slated to play the Kansas City Chiefs on the road, but he was not cleared by team doctors to fly.
So, in true Poyer fashion, he drove over 15 hours from Buffalo to Kansas City and was able to participate in the game as a result.
Poyer is the definition of a team player and continues to show his allegiance to the Bills.
Will the Bills re-sign him for 2023 and beyond?
In 2022, a contract year for Poyer, he racked up 63 total tackles, one forced fumble, and four interceptions.
Poyer’s veteran leadership has proven valuable to the rest of the Bills defense, as they gave up the second-fewest points in the league to opposing teams.
The Bills look to grow on the success that they found in 2022.
Allen and the rest of the Bills roster will look to get over this hump next season, finally breaking into the Super Bowl.
