Bills Links, 9/20: Jordan Poyer shines in Buffalo defense

The free agent safety has been key to Bills success

NFL: New York Jets at Buffalo Bills Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

After two games Jordan Poyer has shown to be a standout for Sean McDermott and the Buffalo Bills. Poyer earned additional praise for his play at Carolina, and is featured in a number of stories in today’s edition of the Bills Links.

The Bills also made two roster moves on Tuesday with the release of Trae Elston and Jelani Jenkins. There are now two open spots on the Bills roster, which is something to keep an eye on leading up to Sunday’s game against Denver.
