Jordan Boyer would like to end his career as a member of the Buffalo Bills.
For that to happen, he would need to extend a contract with the team.
Boyer’s new agent, Drew Rosenhouse, told The Buffalo News Friday that he’s reached out to the Bills front office about it.
“We have approached bills on extending Jordan’s contract, as he would like to end his career at Buffalo,” Rosenhouse wrote in a text message to the news.

This ranks No 10 among the NFL’s contract security sites spotrac.com. It will count $10.776 million from the salary cap, the sixth highest on the team.
Poyer is exiting the 2021 season as he was selected to the All-Pro first team after finishing 91 tackles and was the only player in the league to score five sacks and three interceptions. He also had eight interventions to lose. It was the first Bills Safety team to make the AP All-Pro team since Henry Jones in 1992.
