Getty Jordan Poyer looks on before a game against the New England Patriots.

Jordan Poyer may be trying to squeeze a new contract out of the Buffalo Bills, but the All-Pro safety doesn’t seem to harbor any ill feelings toward his team in the process.

Months after publicly asking for a contract extension from the team, Poyer spoke out about his feelings about playing in Buffalo.

In one of his first direct comments about the team since making the contract demand through agent Drew Rosenhaus, Poyer made it clear that he loves playing in Buffalo and wants to stay for the long term.

Poyer Speaks Out

The Bills safety shared his thoughts on the team’s situation during an appearance on the Inside The Garage Podcast. While Poyer hasn’t opened up much personally about his desire for a new contract — letting Rosenhaus make the announcement that his client wanted a new contract — his remarks this week made it clear where he stands with the team.

“I can’t think of a better situation for me to be in than Buffalo right now,” Poyer said.

Poyer spoke about the pride he felt in helping turn around the franchise. He joined the team in 2017, the season that the Bills broke their 17-year playoff drought. The team continued to improve under head coach Sean McDermott and has turned into a top Super Bowl contender this season.

Poyer said he’s happy to be part of it and committed to the work — comments that seem to rule out any idea that he may hold out.

“We got the best d**n quarterback in this league so sky is the limit for this team, obviously a lot of expectations of our football team but we’ve got to keep things real. We come into work every day and just work, that’s what we do,” Poyer said.

Poyer Earns Praise

Once seen as one of the league’s most underrated safety duos in the league, Poyer and fellow safety Micah Hyde have both earned plenty of accolades in recent months. Both earned All-Pro honors last season, Hyde to the second team and Poyer on the first team.

In June, the analysis outlet Pro Football Focus named the pair among the league’s top “duos” both on offense and defense and predicted they would remain on top in 2022.

Hyde and Poyer are among the most underrated safety duos in the NFL. The two’s WAR totals each ranked top 15 in 2021, and they both posted 86.0-plus coverage grades last season. With another year in Leslie Frazier’s defense, expect more great things from this talented secondary pairing.

The pair could take on an even more important role in the coming season, especially early. Buffalo’s All-Pro cornerback, Tre’Davious White, is recovering from a torn ACL suffered in November of last season and is expected to miss an early stretch of the season. His replacement will be rookie Kaiir Elam, who has earned some praise from his more experienced teammate in the secondary.

“You can already tell he listens,” Hyde said. “He pays attention. You can tell as I’m saying stuff, he’s taking mental notes. That’s how Tre’Davious was when he first got here. He was battling on the football field, which is what Kaiir is doing, but also just learning from his mistakes and learning from the older guys.”

UK recession looms as households feel pain of soaring energy bills

London (CNN Business)Britons are bracing themselves for more tough times ahead as the economy starts to shrink and a new forecast suggests average annual energy bills could exceed £5,000 ($6,000) next year.

Official data published on Friday showed that the country's GDP dropped by 0.1% in the second quarter of this year. Some analysts believe the recession forecast by the Bank of England last week has already begun.The decline was driven by a 0.4% drop in the service sector, mostly in the health services, and wholesale and retail trade, the Office for National Statistics said.
    Soaring energy prices have already helped push up inflation to a 40-year high of 9.4%, causing consumers to cut back on spending. Inflation is expected to peak about 13% later this year.
      According to estimates released Friday by energy research firm Auxilione, the average annual energy bill for millions of UK households is expected to hit £5,277 ($6,396) next spring after Ofgem, the country's energy regulator, adjusts its price cap — the maximum amount suppliers can charge consumers per unit of energy. Read MoreEarlier this week, research firm Cornwall Insight forecasted that the average household energy bill hit £4,266 ($5,177) a year from January — equating to about £355 ($431) a month. Based on those figures, the End Fuel Poverty Coalition (EFPC), said it expected the incomes of nearly one third of all UK households to fall below the poverty line after they've paid their energy.
        The Auxilione estimate breaks down to about £440 ($533) spent on gas and electricity per month between April and June next year, when the price cap is due to be adjusted again. UK household energy bills have already soared 54% this year as a result of rocketing wholesale costs, worsened by Russia's invasion of Ukraine in late February. In May, the government announced a £15 billion ($18 billion) package of support — including a £400 ($485) payment to 29 million households from October — to ease the burden of energy bills. But as energy price forecasts have continued to balloon, many anti-poverty campaigners say the support does not go far enough. Simon Francis, coordinator for the EFPC, said on Tuesday that Cornwall Insights' most recent price estimate meant the current level of government support amounted to a "drop in the ocean."Recession fears growThe drop in GDP in the second quarter was slightly smaller than analysts had predicted.Still, it comes just one week after the Bank of England said it expected the country to fall into a recession — defined as two consecutive quarters of economic contraction — in the autumn, and for it to last through 2023."It now looks like the UK economy entered a recession in the second quarter," the National Institute of Economic and Social Research said in a Friday tweet. "We expect output to continue falling over the next three quarters," it added. Other analysts held off calling the start of a recession, but are nonetheless pessimistic about where the world's fifth largest economy is heading.
          Holger Schmieding, chief economist at bank Berenberg, said the new data represented a "prelude to [a] recession.""Squeezed between surging inflation and tightening monetary policy, we expect UK output to slide further in the coming quarters," he said in a Friday note.
