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. Sat, Jul 19, 2014 10:13:00 PM

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.

Ravens CB Corey Graham hit an escalator in his contract, raising his 2013 salary from $1.8 million to $2.05 million.

Graham started every game from Week 10 on after the Ravens were searching for a replacement at left corner for Lardarius Webb (torn ACL). His play was one of the main reasons the Ravens were able to advance to, and eventually win, the Super Bowl. Entering the final year of his deal, Graham could conceivably start again next season with Cary Williams set for free agency.

Ravens signed DB Corey Graham, formerly of the Bears, to a two-year contract.

The Pro Bowl special teamer had recently visited the Lions and Seahawks. Graham has 180 tackles, four interceptions and two forced fumbles in five seasons with the Bears. Baltimore is making a concerted effort to upgrade special teams, also hosting LB Isaiah Ekejiuba on Friday.

After visiting the Seahawks over the past weekend, free agent CB Corey Graham is currently meeting with Lions officials.

Graham would be getting more interest if NFL teams thought of him as a capable cornerback. He would be a special teamer/dime back with the Lions.

Free agent CB Corey Graham will visit the Seahawks Sunday.'s Jason La Canfora reports Graham is drawing interest from four other teams, and being considered as both a safety and cornerback. A former Pro Bowl special teamer, Graham played just 89 defensive snaps for the Bears in 2011.

Free agent Corey Graham is expected to leave the Bears in search of more playing time on defense.

A former Pro Bowl special teamer, Graham graded out positively by Pro Football Focus in 89 defensive snaps last season. Wherever he ends up, however, his main role will likely still be as a special teams linchpin.
Mon, Mar 12, 2012 10:11:00 AM

Bears signed CB Corey Graham to a one-year contract.

Graham likely found the open market unkind after failing to earn defensive playing time last season. He'll return as one of the top special teamers in football.
