The Bills have changed Corey Graham's position from cornerback to safety on their website roster.

Graham was arguably Buffalo's top corner for much of last season, but the Bills feel good with Stephon Gilmore, Leodis McKelvin, and Ronald Darby competing out wide. Graham will now push Duke Williams to start at strong safety.

Coach Rex Ryan said Corey Graham will see most of his reps at safety.

In an effort to get his best players on the field, Ryan is giving Graham some run at safety next to returning starter Aaron Williams after the Bills lost SS Da'Norris Searcy in free agency. The Bills have some depth at corner with Stephon Gilmore, Leodis McKelvin, Ronald Darby, Nickell Robey, and Ron Brooks.

Bills coach Rex Ryan "clearly" views Corey Graham as an option at safety.

Graham saw time at safety last year, but played most of his snaps at corner. The addition of second-round CB Ronald Darby suggests the Bills will take Graham more seriously as a safety. Duke Williams is expected to start in base sets.
May 22 - 6:28 PM

Bills coach Rex Ryan said Corey Graham could be moved to safety.

Graham played three games at safety last year. As a cornerback, Graham’s fit in Rex Ryan’s press scheme remains to be seen. Projected SS Duke Williams has been a liability in coverage the last two seasons. We suspect the Ronald Darby pick will send Graham to safety.
May 6 - 5:16 PM

Bills coach Rex Ryan views Corey Graham as an outside corner.

The Bills are moving to a press-man scheme on Ryan's watch. Graham graded as a top-ten cover corner by PFF last year, but played mostly zone under ex-DC Jim Schwartz. At 6’0/190, Graham has the size to hold up at the line of scrimmage. Graham has the inside track over Leodis McKelvin to start opposite RCB Stephon Gilmore.
Apr 18 - 3:37 PM

Bills GM Doug Whaley confirmed that safety is "not in the plans right now" for Corey Graham.

"Corey brings depth, he helps us outside and nickel and I think in a pinch we would put him at safety," Whaley said. Graham is the favorite for nickel duties entering training camp, but will need to hold off second-year UDFA Nickell Robey. Graham had 74 tackles, four interceptions, and 12 pass deflections covering the slot in Baltimore last season.

Corey Graham is working as the Bills' primary nickel corner at OTAs.

Second-year UDFA Nickell Robey has been bumped from the role despite a strong rookie year. There was speculation Graham might replace Jairus Byrd at free safety after signing his four-year, $16 million deal, but for now he's penned in at slot corner. Duke Williams is getting a chance to start at free safety.

Bills coach Doug Marrone stated at the league meetings that Corey Graham will get a look to replace Jairus Byrd at free safety.

Graham, signed to a four-year, $16 million deal, gives Buffalo position flexibility with an ability to play outside cornerback, slot corner, and safety. For now, Da'Norris Searcy and Duke Williams are penciled in as competitors at free safety opposite SS Aaron Williams. The job will be sorted out in camp.

Bills signed CB Corey Graham to a four-year, $16 million contract.

The Bills outbid the Redskins for Graham, a Buffalo native that is entering his age-29 season. It's a lot to pay for a versatile nickel corner and special teamer, but Graham has been highly effective for the Ravens over the last two years. He appeared in all 16 games in 2013, grading out as a top-15 slot corner by Pro Football Focus. Graham projects as the No. 3 corner behind Leodis McKelvin and Stephon Gilmore.

The Redskins have scheduled a visit for free agent CB Corey Graham.

The Skins' top competitors for Graham appear to be the Ravens and Giants, although this will be Graham's first visit, giving Washington the edge to land him. He is a highly versatile special teamer and sub-package defensive back.

The Newark Star-Ledger reports the Giants are interested in free agent CB Corey Graham.

The Giants are likely out of the Alterraun Verner derby and are now turning their attention to second-tier cornerbacks. Graham, 29 in July, excelled as the Ravens' slot corner the past two seasons and can play special teams. He'd be replacing Terrell Thomas as the Giants' nickel corner. The Redskins are also interested.

The Redskins have expressed interest in free agent CB Corey Graham.

It doesn't look like the Ravens are going to be able to keep their valuable nickel corner from hitting the market Tuesday. Graham should be an affordable target for a Redskins team that is desperate to upgrade their pass defense by any means necessary. They had the league's No. 20 secondary last season and the No. 30 unit in 2012.

The Ravens would like to re-sign free agent CB Corey Graham.

Graham was a valuable nickel back and spot starter last year, setting career highs with 74 tackles and four interceptions. He appeared in all 16 games and graded out as a top-15 slot corner by Pro Football Focus. Graham is considered one of Baltimore's top priorities, along with Eugene Monroe and Daryl Smith.

Ravens CB Corey Graham said he's open to a long-term deal with the team.

Graham was the Ravens' most effective corner after injures forced him into the starting lineup last season. Entering the final year of his contract, he'll need to followup his strong second half to earn a long-term extension. Graham is expected to compete with Jimmy Smith for a starting job in training camp.
