Bills GM Brandon Beane predicted an extension during his press conference at the end of the season and proclaimed his fanship of Hyde.
“I did not see any dropout from Micah this year, so I can not say I think he is declining or anything like that,” Beane said. “I’m a big fan of Micah Hyde, just what he brings not only on the pitch but also in our building. You feel me. One of the most positive personalities to be around and just a super competitive guy. You would not feel that when you just talk to him in an interview.He probably does not feel competitive in a one-on-one conversation.
“But when he’s on that field, he’s one of the most competitive guys and that’s what you love about him. I think he will still play for years in this league if he wants to. “
