Jordan Poyer delivered for the Bills on a lower-middle-class (for the NFL) contract over the past three years, and the team will reward him. The Bills and the veteran safety agreed on an extension Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com tweets.
The new deal will pay him $20.5M over two years, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (via Twitter) hears. That’ll take him through the 2022 season, meaning that both he and safety mate Micah Hyde are each signed beyond this coming season.
Poyer, 29 in April, turned in a career-high 107 tackles last year. His stop totals have been trending up ever since he joined the Bills in 2017. All in all, he’s made 302 tackles for the Bills across the last three seasons, serving mostly as a part-timer.
In bigger news out of Buffalo, the Bills swung a blockbuster deal to acquire Stefon Diggs from the Vikings earlier this week. On the other side of the ball, they landed former Panthers defensive end Mario Addison on a three-year deal.
