The Green Bay Packers made the decision to finally move on from defensive coordinator Joe Barry. It was a move that many Packers fans anticipated happening following the defensive performance much of this last season. Now the search is on for the next DC in Green Bay.
One former All-Pro could potentially make a return to Green Bay following Joe Barry’s firing as well as his uncertainty with his current team.
According to Rexwell Villas:
“Bills safety Micah Hyde said he’s up in the air as to whether or not he’ll continue his playing career. Hyde, 33, is a free agent in March.” However, Hyde also said that he’s going to take some time before making a final decision on his future in the pros.
“I just have no idea what the future holds right now,” Hyde said, per Mark Gaughan of Buffalo News. “I’m going to sit down, maybe in a couple weeks or something, and talk to the wife and talk to the family. But we’ll see. I’m in no rush, no rush at all.”
Hyde missed most of the 2022 NFL season because of a neck injury and then played 14 games in the 2023 campaign. He was sidelined for the other four outings in 2023 after sustaining a stinger after absorbing a hit in a game versus the Cincinnati Bengals.
He was able to make it back in time for the Bills’ final four assignments of the season and play in the playoffs. Against the Chiefs, Hyde posted four total tackles.
