The Buffalo Bills and Jordan Poyer contract talks roll on.

The All-Pro safety made his feelings known this spring: He wants an extension from the team.

Letting his actions speak, Poyer did not attend voluntary practices. However, once mandatory minicamp camp began, Poyer held up his end of the bargain and showed up.

Both sides have indicated they want him to remain in Buffalo. Despite that, some time has rolled on and still no deal. At least things still seem to be on good terms as of now after the latest update Poyer gave on his feelings.

Poyer appeared on the Inside The Garage Podcast earlier this week. His comments strongly indicated exactly how he felt.

"I can’t think of a better situation for me to be in than Buffalo right now," Poyer said.

The 30-year-old discussed how much it meant to be him to be fully apart of the turnaround the Bills have had.

Poyer and safety partner Micah Hyde signed in Buffalo in 2017, two of the earliest additions by head coach Sean McDermott. Poyer said he prides himself on that and also the relationships he has made with Bills teammates.

He went on to add how the future looking bright with Josh Allen leading the way also makes him want to stick around.

"We got the best (expletive) quarterback in this league so sky is the limit for this team, obviously a lot of expectations of our football team but we’ve got to keep things real–We come into work every day and just work, that’s what we do," Poyer said.

During OTAs while Poyer was not around, Buffalo general manager Brandon Beane expressed his desires with Poyer. He did not beat around the bush.

"I want Jordan here. I’m not looking for anything different than that. It’s just business gets in the way sometimes, and I respect that," Beane said.

Now it just remains to be seen if the two sides can come to a price point and contract that works for both.
