Rachel Bush wants more of her husband’s check to stay with them and not go to state taxes.
Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer, a pending free agent, has already stated online that his next team would be in a state that does not take half of his income. His wife feels the same way.
Rachel Bush took to Twitter to reveal Poyer pays $655,000 in taxes on his $5.6 million salary in New York, while he’d pay nothing in Florida.
“$655,000 …I know on paper where they SAY it’s going… (can’t even say I fully agree with that) but let’s start asking questions about where it’s actually* going…because judging off of the quality of what I see in said state…it’s not going where they say it’s going”
Both of them have mentioned playing in Florida, which leads you to believe he might be headed to a team down there. Plus, the weather would be so much better than what they deal with in Buffalo, New York, which is known for being unforgiven in the weather department. The Bills had to move a home game because of the snow this past regular season.
Poyer has spent the last six seasons with the Bills, making the Pro Bowl in 2022 and earning All-Pro honors in 2021.
The soon-to-be 32-year-old is likely to cash in big on the next and likely final contract of his career.
“A lot of people ask me, ‘Oh, if it wasn’t Buffalo, where would you go?’ I kind of ponder the question every once in a while,” Poyer said recently on his podcast. “. . . I would love to go to a state that doesn’t take half my money. It’s crazy to me how taxes work. Some people will say, ‘You’re already making X amount of money.’ Taxes play a big part in all of our lives. . . . If it wasn’t Buffalo, it’d be nice to be warm. It would be nice to see the sun, maybe, every week or so, every other week at least.”
During his time with the Buffalo Bills, Jordan Poyer established himself as one of the best strong safeties in the NFL. Since 2017, Poyer has 27 interceptions, which is tied for the fourth-most among safeties per Stat Muse.
Last season, posted 63 combined tackles, four tackles for loss, and a career-best missed tackle percentage of 4.5 percent.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
