Bills Excited To Have Poyer Back As Minicamps Start Up
ORCHARD PARK, NY (WHEC) – Monday marked the first of three scheduled Mini Camps for the Buffalo Bills. With attendance mandatory, it turned the attention to whether or not Jordan Poyer would be present as the All-Pro safety seeks a contract extension. That question was answered a day before they began. Some teammates rejoiced in Poyer returning while understanding that there’s business to be done.
"That’ll all kind of figure itself out," QB Josh Allen said. "You know, I’ve been around this league for now five years and, you know, sometimes it’s how thIngs go. But I’m glad that he’s here. And we missed him. We missed him in OTAs. I know he missed being here. So again, he’s ‘All Pro Po’ and when he’s he’s on the field, he’s one of the best, if not the best safeties. And we’ve got the best safety team in the league. And I’ve said that since I’ve been here, and I’m going to continue to say that."
"The older guys, they understand, you know, what goes into it’s a business," Safety Micah Hyde said. "I think at the end of the day, just like you guys are trying to feed our families and, you know, we want to be compensated for for the work that we do. And so, you know, a situation like that comes along. You know, we have full faith that, you know, Po[yer]’s representatives are going to handle it. And and obviously, you know, the people upstairs here are going to handle it."
Buffalo has a second mini camp practice scheduled on Wednesday before a final one on Thursday. However, it’s believed that session will be used for team-bonding as much as it would be for football related activities, if not more.
