The Buffalo Bills and All-Pro safety Jordan Poyer have agreed to a reworked contract for the 2022 season that includes up to $2 million in incentives, agents Drew Rosenhaus and Kyle Lincoln told ESPN’s Field Yates on Saturday.
Poyer had been getting $500,000 in incentives from his previous deal — a two-year, $19.5M extension signed in March 2020.
“Jordan appreciates this good will gesture by the Bills as we continue to work for a contract extension,” Rosenhaus told ESPN.
The incentives cover a variety of categories tied to play-time, on-field production (e.g. interceptions) and team categories (i.e. win or statistical improvement), all of which are attainable given Poyer’s prior role and production and the team’s success.
The Bills beat the Los Angeles Rams 31-10 on Thursday night to open the NFL season.
Poyer signed with the Bills in 2017 as a free agent and has become one of the game’s best safeties. He is currently scheduled to be a free agent after this season.
