I’m late getting the news up this weekend (battling a little case of the flu), but as you already know the Buffalo Bills have re-signed cornerback Leodis McKelvin. Reported terms are $20 million over four years, including $7.5 million guaranteed.
Here was the official team press release on the re-signing:
“The Buffalo Bills today announced that the team has agreed to terms to re-sign CB Leodis McKelvin. In accordance with team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
McKelvin led the NFL with an 18.7 punt return average (23 for 431 yards) in 2012 and became the first player in team history to return two punts for a touchdown in a single season. He added 20 tackles (19 solo), one interception and three passes defensed in 13 games with four starts.
Since entering the NFL as the team’s first-round (11th overall) draft selection in 2008 from Troy, he has started 33-of-64 games played and made 153 tackles (126 solo), six interceptions, 30 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
McKelvin holds the franchise record for punt return average with a 16.33 mark (39 for 637 yards) with three touchdowns and has returned 91 kickoffs for 2,407 yards (26.5 average) and one touchdown in his career.”
