Bills Release Jordan Poyer

In what was likely a salary cap driven move the Bills have released safety Jordan Poyer. Poyer started 16 games for the Bills in 2023 and was an All Pro in 2021. The Bills signed Poyer to a two year, $12.5 million contract in 2023 after his prior contract with the Bills expired. Poyer’s salary cap number was $7.72 million and the cap strapped Bills will save $5.72 million in cap room with his release. Poyer will leave the Bills with $2 million in dead money.

Poyer will join a crowded list of free agent safeties in 2024. The group of UFAs at the position was very deep to begin with and now Poyer joins a list of former stars that have been released including Jamal Adams, Kevin Byard, Eddie Jackson, Quandre Diggs, Rayshawn Jenkins, and Tracy Walker.
