Bills Extend Micah Hyde

The Bills have signed Micah Hyde to a brand new deal. The safety is now locked up through 2023, thanks to his two-year extension. The add-on is worth $19.25MM, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (on Twitter), keeping his cap number roughly the same as last season.

Hyde spent the early part of his career with the Packers, the joined the Bills on a five-year, $30MM deal in 2017. In that first year, Hyde earned a Pro Bowl nod along with second-team All-Pro honors. He’s racked up 17 interceptions over the years, including his most recent one against the Niners in December. In 2020, he also notched 70 tackles and five passes defensed. The Bills now have Hyde and Jordan Poyer locked up for multiple seasons, securing one of the league’s stronger safety duos.

There’s still more work to be done in Buffalo, including today’s get-together with Michael Palardy. This will mark the punter’s first visit since getting dropped by the Panthers.

    I’m still pissed the Packers let him get away! Great player. The Bills are lucky to have him.

      This. I was on the fence when GB took him in the 5th round— happy since he was a Hawk, but doubtful he’d succeed. He proved me wrong and Ted failed to resign him and elected to throw another 15 or so draft picks over the next couple years trying to shore up the secondary.
