The Buffalo Bills are currently attempting to keep All-Pro safety Jordan Poyer in town. The 31-year-old is a free agent next offseason and should have no shortage of suitors on the open market.

Poyer recently joined the Inside The Garage podcast where he commented on the contract discussions, as well as his thoughts on the situation in Buffalo.

'Can't Think Of A Better Situation'

Poyer spoke highly about his time in Buffalo and indicated that he'd be open to sticking around long-term with the Bills.

"The team is just such a really cool group of guys. I always tell the rookies when they come in, 'You really won't ever be around a better group of men,'" Poyer said. "Just the relationships that we built in Buffalo ... those are relationships that we've built over the years that's really second to none, and I can't really think of a better situation for me to be in than Buffalo right now."

The Investment

One thing Poyer seems especially excited about is the coaching staff in Buffalo. He mentioned that this staff was the ones who truly believed in him, and that still means a lot to the veteran defensive back, even to this day.

"You can tell that coaches in Buffalo are really invested. ... They're guys who all really saw me and believed in me," Poyer said. "As a player, that's all that you really want, is for somebody at that level to believe in you."

A Culture Shift

Poyer was one of the first additions the Bills made when they brought in new head coach Sean McDermott in 2017. His arrival coincided with a culture shift in Buffalo, which Poyer was excited to be a part of.

"You know the Bills hadn't been relevant for a long time when we got there. We always heard about it coming to Buffalo, the Bills hadn't been to the playoffs in 20 years," Poyer said. "Micah Hyde, me and him came in together in 2017, and really it was a whole culture shift, and it was really cool to be a part of that shift."

"I've Enjoyed My Time"

Poyer finished off by saying that he feels as if he has unfinished business in Buffalo. And he'd prefer not to leave until that business is finished.

"I think we have the right group of guys in the locker room to [win], obviously I think we have the best quarterback in the damn league so that being said I think sky's the limit for this team," Poyer said. "Buffalo's been cool, man, I've enjoyed my time out there and definitely want to come away with a ring before I leave."
