Bills SS Corey Graham says the defense will be more on the same page in 2016.
"Things have slowed down," Graham said of the second year in coach Rex Ryan's scheme. "Everybody knows what they’re doing. And we’ve got some new pieces in there that are looking really good." Graham's play fell off last season, but not to an unacceptable level. One of the most durable players in the league, Graham turns 31 next month. Jun 23 - 3:44 PM

Bills SS Corey Graham has restructured his contract.

Graham had been set to count $4.6 million against the cap. More than likely, the majority of his $3.125 million salary has been converted into a signing bonus that can be prorated over the final two years of his deal. Graham played 1,006 snaps in 2015, and hasn't missed a game since 2007.
Mar 3 - 4:19 PM

Bills DB Corey Graham will remain a safety for 2016.

Graham started all 16 games in 2015, playing the majority of his 1,006 snaps at strong safety, though he also spent a decent amount of time in center field. Aaron Williams is expected to return from his neck injury and start opposite Graham.
Jan 28 - 2:01 PM

Bills SS Corey Graham suffered a concussion in Sunday's opener against the Dolphins, and will not return.

Graham took a knee to the helmet from Frank Gore, and was obviously woozy. He should be considered week to week. Bacarri Rambo is now in the game at strong safety.

Corey Graham opened training camp as the Bills' starting strong safety.

He got the nod over Duke Williams. Coach Rex Ryan confirmed Graham will run with the ones across from FS Aaron Williams, which should make for a solid safety tandem. Neither has much IDP appeal behind Buffalo's stingy front seven.

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.
Fri, May 22, 2015 06:28:00 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.
Wed, May 6, 2015 05:16:00 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.

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.
Wed, Jun 4, 2014 10:29:00 PM

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.
Wed, Mar 12, 2014 05:32:00 PM

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.
