Dolphins sign 32-yo dynamic former star Poyer

The Dolphins have signed former Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer to a one-year $2-million.

“I want to help as much as I can,” Poyer said. “I’m 32, I guess you can call me old or whatever, but at the same time, I have a lot of knowledge about this game. And I feel like I can help players see the game maybe in a different light, a different perspective and help them essentially just get one step closer to the ball, one step closer to making that play.”

Dolphins need to get Poyer back to his best

2023 was not a good year for the soon to be 33 year-old Poyer. He allowed 73.3% of passes his way to be completed and gave up a QB rating of 102.9, the fourth highest in his career, and looked like he had lost a step. But in 2024 he will be playing alongside Jevon Holland.

“I mean, he’s just an extremely athletic player, extremely gifted player that I’ve been following and watched kind of grow over the last few years,” Poyer said. “You know, that’s an Oregon Duck and you’ve an Oregon State guy here, so that’ll be pretty cool to just connect with him and learn about him.”

“This is just another one of those opportunities, another one of those great opportunities for me to go out there and prove to myself really that and everybody else around me I can still play and still play at a high level,” Poyer said. “I still help win games. I have a lot of experience in this game. A lot of experience within this division and a lot of people that I’ve seen over the years and I want to bring all that knowledge here to help ultimately help the Dolphins win football games.

“I’m here with open mind, open heart, with open arms to learn, to grow, to evolve as a person, as a player, and just bring the best version of myself that I can again to help this team win football games.”

New defensive co-ordinator Anthony Weaver will be happy to have Poyer on his Dolphins roster to add experience and help coach up some of the younger players that are bound to see the field this year.

While the Dolphins have to get cheaper on defence, Poyer has the potential to be a high-level player if he can return to form.
