Beane on Jordan Poyer extension talks: ‘There’s no conflict’
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WHEC) — Jordan Poyer was half of arguably the best safety duos in the NFL last year, alongside Micah Hyde.
In his 5th season with Buffalo, Poyer picked off five passes matching a career-high from 2017. The 87 yards returned from those picks combined more than doubled his previous best from that season (33). Buffalo would like to compete him beyond next year, when his contract ends. However, that’s not a given.
He was absent from the first day of voluntary workouts in Orchard Park. Not too long ago, Poyer, an All-Pro last season, switched agents. He’s now represented by well-known agent Drew Ronsehaus, who also represents Rob Gronkowski and Tyreek Hill.
Poyer’s camp has reportedly reached out to the Bills about an extension. According to Pro Football Talk, he’s in line to make $5.6 million this season with a $10.7 million cap hit that could be reduced if a deal is worked out. Bills GM Brandon Beane is determined to conduct business the way he sees fit.
"We don’t get to you know, every team gets to conduct business how they want to and every agency or player gets to conduct we just we control the Bills do," Beane said. "And I would just say that, you know, he’s got a really good agent. I’ve worked with Drew for a number of years and we’ve always had a great relationship. So there’s nothing there’s no there’s no conflict, anything like that. We’ll do business the way we do it and they’ll do it the way they think is best for them."
