The Buffalo Bills’ completely revamped secondary paid dividends in 2017, and the accolades continue to roll in for the defensive backs. In addition to being named to the Pro Bowl, safety Micah Hyde was named second team All-Pro by the Associated Press on Friday.
Hyde finished the year with five interceptions, 13 passes defended, and 65 tackles, leading the unit after signing as a free agent this offseason. Hyde received nine votes to come in fourth in voting for safeties behind Minnesota’s Harrison Smith, Tennessee’s Kevin Byard, and Seattle’s Earl Thomas.
Pro Bowl guard Richie Incognito was only two votes from being the second team left guard, receiving eight votes to come in third. Jordan Poyer (1 at safety) and Tre’Davious White (2 at defensive back) each received votes, as well. Poyer and White weren’t selected to the Pro Bowl.
It’s the first All-Pro team and Pro Bowl for Hyde. Incognito has never been named to an All-Pro team, while Poyer and the rookie White have never played in the Pro Bowl.
