The Buffalo Bills’ trip to the Super Bowl ended abruptly after their 10-27 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC divisional round on Sunday, January 22, and with the offseason starting earlier than expected, the team’s focus immediately shifts on deciding which players to keep or drop next year.

While most of the Bills Mafia would like to see safe Jordan Poyer stay in Buffalo, his wife Rachel Bush, who has been adamant about getting her husband an extension before the season starts, threw cold water on hopes that the 31-year-old The old man will somehow finish his career in Orchard Park. On Tuesday, January 24, Bush appeared to confirm that Poyer’s tenure with the Bills was over.

bush tweeted, “I’m still taking my time to process all of this as I completely pack up our house for the first time in 6 years. Seems surreal. Bill’s Mafia no matter what – whatever comes out of Jordan’s FA this year, you’ve all been AMAZING over the last few years. THANK YOU❤️💙.”

Poyer himself has yet to officially say goodbye to Bill’s mafia, but learning his wife is “completely” packing up the house strongly suggests he may be applying for another team next year.

Bill’s general manager Brandon Beane said during a press conference on Tuesday afternoon that he had “a lot of respect” for how Poyer has managed his contract situation over the past year and while “we’d definitely like to have him back,” he’s not sure that’s possible until they get clarification on that have what is the cap The limit is for the 2023 NFL season.

While one could argue that Cole Beasley’s time in Buffalo seemed officially over after he sold his Buffalo home and briefly retired from the NFL, Poyer’s situation is very different. He is unwilling to sign a minimum contract for a one-year veteran. The All-Pro wants to get the money he makes and secure a long-term contract as he enters the back end of his NFL career.

Poyer, who has been with the Bills since 2017, is set to become one of the most sought-after free agents this offseason, and Bush is excited to see where he ends up. she retweeted Jets podcaster Will Parkinson’s post read, “If you want to win in 2023 sign Jordan Poyer and he instantly makes you so much better,” and wrote, “It goes for any team, that’s a fact😅🤪.”

The Instagram model tweeted another message of support on Monday evening. “❤️💙 He literally gave everything to this city and its team. Proud would be an understatement! You are super human @J_poyer21 !! 🤩 Time to get healthy next year and go crazy! You already know, Superstar⭐️.”

Unfortunately for Poyer, what appeared to be the last “home game” in Buffalo did not end well. After a bad one Helmet to helmet collision With Bill’s cornerback Tre’Davious White early in the fourth quarter – both players attempting to attack Bengal receiver Tee Higgins – Poyer was ruled out for the remainder of the matchup due to a serious injury.

While no one can deny Poyer’s talent, tenacity or dedication to the Bills, he endured a string of injuries last season and even drove 15 hours to play against Kansas City in Week 6 after a rib injury made flying unsafe for him had done – all the more bittersweet is his departure.

The Bills went 13-1 this year when Poyer was active, and with fellow All-Pro safety Micah Hyde hitting IR in Week 2, he pulled a lot of weight as both a player and a mentor. While injuries limited his performance, he finished the regular season with a 75.4 overall rating from Pro Football Focus, with 46 solo tackles, 4 interceptions and 16 receptions allowed.

Interested teams are hoping Poyer will recover over the summer and return to the level he played at last year. In 2021, Poyer tallied 61 solo tackles, 5 interceptions and 13 receptions allowed.

Financially, it will be impossible for Beane to keep all of his outstanding free agents, especially as Josh Allen’s salary comes with a $39.7 million cap in 2023, according to Spotrac.com, Stefon Diggs’ new extension with one Lost about $20.3 million and Von Miller’s deal consumed another $18.7 million.

While the NFL salary cap is expected to increase, it was $208.2 million for the 2022 season, Beane said Tuesday that Bill’s list for next year currently stands at $240 million and there’s no way the cap will be raised will the High for 2023.

In addition to Poyer, other key free agents include linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, linebacker AJ Klein, guard Rodger Saffold, running back Devin Singletary, punter Sam Martin, defensive tackle Jordan Phillips, defensive end Shaq Lawson, and offensive linemen David Quessenberry and Greg Van Roten.
