Jordan Poyer changes agents


Recommended Posts

Poyer will be gone. Ik people don’t want to hear it but paying 2 safeties the amount of cap they do is not manageable as some of these contracts continue to balloon. They are also both 30+ their has to be a plan in place. Unless they think Damar Hamlin is that guy then they have to draft one high

Re-signing Diggs likely means that one -- if not two -- of Knox, Edmunds, and Poyer will not be re-signed.

Given age and recent safety prospect visits, I'd list Poyer as the MOST likely not to be here in 2023.

I'm not commenting on that decision one way or the other. I love Jordan Poyer. Most underrated safety in the NFL. I'm just recognizing the reality that you can't pay everybody, and that a 32 year old safety seems like a logical choice to let walk after the season.

Hey, I saw this very comment on Twitter

First of all, I would like to apologize to everybody here. I bought a Poyer jersey last year. These things tend to happen when I buy a jersey. 

To the bolded. I think Poyer and Hyde cover a lot of deficiencies for in our front 7. I get they are getting old, but I thought they both had another contract in them for sure. The Bills have not hit their front 7 picks out of the park by any means. Moving on from Poyer and Hyde could cause some issues. 

Unpopular opinion, but the Diggs contract gets me worried about this stuff. Josh Allen's feelings aside, I am not sure having the highest paid WR/QB tandem in the NFL is a long term recipe for success. 

Only the highest paid Wr/QB tandem until the next tandem finishes signing!

 I think you've got to find a way.  It takes a long time to develop TE's.  If we move off Edmunds & Poyer, that probably allows us to get it done. 

That’s gotta be the plan. I think I’ll like this roster a lot more when the dust settles.

Didn’t he just get a new deal last year?

 

Spotrac shows him as signing in 2020, but for a 2 year deal that expires AFTER this season, so...unsure

I think he signed in 2020 for 3 years.

 

Poyer is currently the 5th (or 6th) highest cap hit on the Bills at $10.78M, with only Tre' White, Josh Allen, Tremaine Edmunds, and Dion Dawkins (and presumably Diggs) paid more.  He only has $1M signing bonus, so most of that is new cash.

He got a 2 year extension 2 years ago so it kind of makes sense for him to be looking again.

Just a little note that the Bills picked up both Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer when their original teams didn't want them.

So there is a third option, which is inking under-rated talent from another team.

I looked it up and Poyer signed a 2 year extension in 2020, prior to the last year of his contract in Buffalo.

He restructured in 2021.

 

So yes, it typically does make sense for a player and team to start talking about a new contract prior to the last year of their existing contract.

 

 

Rachel Bush got salty when the Bills signed Von Miller:

Yes. Name me 10 better.

All of the above are arguably better than Knox.  And don't get me wrong, I like Knox and want to hold on to him.  As it is right now, he's a quality NFL starting tight end.   But as the other poster said, he needs to take the next step to be top-10 at the position.

When was last time the Bills got a comp pick?  The idea that the Bills will get a LOT of comp picks seems ludicrous.

When was the last time we were so stacked that we couldn’t afford great players in FA?  Gilmore?  
 

I agree, we won’t get a LOT of comp picks…..we may be able to get one for losing Edmunds.  I don’t foresee us signing a bunch of high value free agents next year,  but rather some settle/Crowder type deals. Not sure we sign someone with the market value of Edmunds.  
 

i could see us getting a 3rd or 4th….which is what we’d probably get now if we traded him. I’d rather have edmunds this season rather than trade him for a 4th

He can change agents all he wants,  I don't see Beane throwing him some monster guaranteed money extension. If he chooses to stay he will need to give the Bills a team friendly deal or move on at his age.

These players are annoying. They have big money agents negotiating contracts for them, squeezing every penny out of the team they can and then whine a short time later about the contract that they signed willingly. 

 

Just like the rest of the free market, prices go up.  Can the guy who sold you a house last year come back and ask for more money because real estate prices went up? 

 

It’s getting really dumb. 

Eh, it's a free market.  They have the right to try and renegotiate and the team has the right to tell them to pound sand, which is likely what will happen in this case.  Poyer is a top-5 safety, imo, and I have no problem with him asking to be paid like one.

What’s he worth? A third maybe?  Can we offer him to move up in the first? Doubt it. Maybe we swap seconds throwing him in and move up in the second pretty far with a team that has two like the Seahawks?

I love me some Poyer but top 5? no. Top 10? yes!
