The Bills added a Buffalo native to the defensive backfield

The Buffalo Bills today announced that the team has agreed to terms with free agent CB Corey Graham. In accordance with team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“Early in the free agency process, we identified Corey Graham as a player who would help our football team,” said Bills General Manager Doug Whaley. “Graham is a smart, physical and tough cornerback who has had success with both the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens. He is playmaker defensively and on special teams. We believe he will help the Buffalo Bills improve in both areas in the years to come.”

Graham, a native of Buffalo and Turner-Carroll High School product, recorded 68 tackles (51 solo) along with career-highs of four interceptions and 12 passes defensed with the Baltimore Ravens in 16 games (five starts) in 2013.

The 6-0, 196-pound New Hampshire product has played in 109 consecutive games – the second-longest active streak among NFL cornerbacks – and posts career totals of 227 tackles (177 solo), 10 interceptions and 32 passes defensed.

Graham, a 2011 Pro Bowl selection, entered the NFL as a fifth-round (168th overall) draft choice of the Chicago Bears in 2007 and spent his first five years in the NFL with the Bears before joining Baltimore in 2012.
