Jordan Poyer Signing With Dolphins

Former Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer is signing an undisclosed one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday, according to his agents Drew Rosenhaus and Kyle Lincoln. Poyer, an All-Pro in 2021 and a Pro Bowler in 2022 with the Bills, had 100 tackles (66 solo), one sack, four passes defended and one forced fumble in 16 regular-season starts in his seventh and final season in Buffalo in 2023. He will join the division-rival Dolphins after the Bills cut him last week. The soon-to-be 33-year-old veteran defensive back may be past his days of fantasy relevance in IDP formats and is now more of an injury risk, but he should form a strong safety duo in his new home in Miami with Jevon Holland. Poyer has had 100-plus combined tackles in four of his last six seasons and also 17 interceptions during that span.

Jordan Poyer Let Go By Bills

The Buffalo Bills are releasing long-time starting safety Jordan Poyer, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The one-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro signed with the Bills in 2017 and has played in 107 games for the organization. Originally selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft, Poyer has accumulated 807 tackles, 12 sacks, 24 interceptions, and 54 passes defended over his 12-year career. The 32-year-old is now a free agent, and it will be interesting to see if he has a robust market considering his age. The release of Poyer saves the Bills $5.7 million on the cap.

Jordan Poyer Ruled Out For Week 4

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said on WRG550 on Friday that safety Jordan Poyer (knee) is out for the Week 4 divisional showdown against the Miami Dolphins. Poyer suffered a knee injury in the Week 3 blowout win over the Washington Commanders and will be unable to suit up this weekend as a result after not practicing this week. The 32-year-old is considered day-to-day, though, so perhaps he'll be able to return in Week 5 against the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars. Losing Poyer for this game is certainly notable against the best offense in the league through the first three weeks of the season. The Bills defensive unit was the top-scoring unit in fantasy last week, but managers should temper expectations against Miami.

Jordan Poyer Expected To Return To Buffalo

Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer is expected to re-sign with the team, according to sources. Poyer took a quick peek at the free-agent market but decided to return to the team that he has spent the last six years with. He was a first-team All-Pro in 2021 and made his first Pro Bowl in 2022 despite playing in only 12 regular season games due to injury. The 31-year-old is very attractive for his playmaking skills in IDP fantasy formats when he's healthy. Poyer had 100-plus total tackles in three straight years for the Bills from 2018-20, and he had 93 total tackles in 2021. In his 12 games in 2022, Poyer racked up 63 tackles (44 solo), four tackles for loss, four interceptions, eight passes defensed and a forced fumble during the regular season.

Bills Expected To Re-Sign Jordan Poyer

ESPN's Field Yates expects the Buffalo Bills to re-sign impending free-agent Pro Bowl safety Jordan Poyer this offseason. He continues to play at a high level, and both sides have been interested in a contract extension for some time. Poyer will be entering his age-32 season in 2023, so this will be his best shot at one more big contract. He had four interceptions and eight pass breakups in 12 games this year and has played a significant role in Buffalo's defensive rise recently. If Buffalo chooses to go in another direction, the first-time Pro Bowler should have plenty of interest on the open market. In addition to Poyer, linebacker Tremaine Edmunds is another impending free agent on the defensive side of the ball for Buffalo that they will probably want back.

Jordan Poyer Being Evaluated For Head Injury

Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer (head) was injured during Sunday's postseason meeting with the Cincinnati Bengals. The 31-year-old collided with cornerback Tre'Davious White while attempting to intercept a deep pass to Tee Higgins. Both players remained on the ground in obvious pain. As a result, Poyer went to the locker room for an evaluation, and although he doesn't have an official designation, he should be considered questionable to return. If he doesn't, he'll finish the day with six total tackles. With Poyer set for free agency this offseason, it may be the last time anyone sees him in a Bills uniform.

Jordan Poyer Will Play On Monday Night

Buffalo Bills All-Pro safety Jordan Poyer (knee) said that he has been playing this year with a torn lateral meniscus in his knee, but he will be out there on Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals to close out Week 17 action. Buffalo hasn't lost any of the last 14 regular season games that Poyer has played in. Poyer was listed as questionable for Monday's game, but he will play and should be an every-down player after playing 92 percent of the offensive snaps in last week's win over the Chicago Bears. The Bills defense will need all the help they can get in trying to slow down Bengals wideouts Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd in a big AFC showdown. A first-time Pro Bowler in 2022, Poyer enters the game with 54 tackles (37 solo), four tackles for loss, four interceptions and eight passes defensed in 11 starts.

Jordan Poyer Questionable For Week 17

Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer (knee) is listed as questionable for the Week 17 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. The 31-year-old missed practice on Thursday and Friday due to a lingering knee issue. His absence would certainly be a significant hit to the Bills defense. Poyer leads the team with four interceptions and ranks top 12 in coverage grades among safeties this season, according to Pro Football Focus. The Bills defense is not exactly a strong play in fantasy leagues against the Bengals offensive unit. However, Poyer being on the field would certainly be an upgrade for this defense.

Jordan Poyer Officially Active Sunday

Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer (elbow) is officially active for Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns. He had been listed as questionable but practiced in full on Friday. Poyer has amassed 21 tackles and four interceptions through five games this season. His presence will bolster the Bills' secondary on Sunday afternoon.

Jordan Poyer, Greg Rousseau Ruled Out

Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer (elbow) and defensive end Greg Rousseau (ankle) have both been ruled out for Week 10 against the Minnesota Vikings. Poyer suffered an elbow injury in Week 8 and hasn't played since. The 31-year-old All-Pro leads the Bills with four interceptions, so his absence is notable against a Vikings offense that loves to throw the ball. With Poyer out again, Dean Marlowe is likely to make another start this Sunday. Rousseau suffered a high-ankle sprain in the Week 9 loss to the New York Jets and is likely to miss multiple games. The 22-year-old's five sacks rank second on the team, so he will also be missed in the matchup against Minnesota. Despite the absences of both Poyer and Rousseau, the Bills defense/special teams unit remains a strong starting unit in fantasy.
