Turner-Carroll High grad Corey Graham is coming home.

The Bills have signed the veteran cornerback and special-teamer to a four-year contract, his agent tweeted.

Graham's deal reportedly is worth as much as $20 million.

Graham spent the past two seasons as a part-time starter for the Baltimore Ravens. He started at cornerback in their Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

He made a career-high four interceptions last year, including one against the Bills in Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Graham went to the Pro Bowl as a special-teamer for the Chicago Bears in 2011.

    I was hoping they might pick this guy up. At 20 mil we may have overpaid, but other reports I'm hearing are saying it is only 16 mil. 4 Mil a year sounds right down the middle for Graham

      Agreed, but it is the Bills and being in the shape they are in now, they're going to have to overpay to get anyone to come here -- that's just the nature of the beast right now -- they have plenty of cap room so it can still work as long as they make good choices and spend wisely.

        It'S Not Just The Bills Overpaying For Players... Every Team Has To Shell Out More Money Since The Salary Cap Went Up 10 Million. That's The Beast Here, Not The Fact That You Seemingly Believe No One Wants To Play In Buffalo

          Your argument is empty -- it's all scale -- if the cap has slid upward it slid upward for everyone and if EVERY team has to shell out more that means the Bills STILL have to shell out more than that to get free agents to come here as opposed to going somewhere else -- the dollars have changed, the facts haven't ! They are the Bills and are where they are and will have to pay free agents more than other teams to come here -- it's a simple FACT !

    As a Turner High School grad (yes, I graduated long before Carroll joined up with Turner), I just want to say what a terrific move by the Bills to bring our hometown SB winner back to Buffalo!

    Seems like a good signing. Graham seems to have had his best year last year and in his limited starts he was productive. You never know what a change of scenery will do for a player; Look at Hughes. It's not a big name signing, but it is a player with playoff and SB experience. Adding quality depth is always a good move. Whether he is a starter on a regular basis remains to be seen, but Graham appears to have potential and he is a hometown guy. ProBowl special teamer is also an added bonus. This is a solid value signing that will add some real depth at CB. Welcome back Corey; now let's get to the playoffs - Priority #1.

      Lol, thanks for the chuckle.

    Not a bad signing. But....One major obstacle that Buffalo needs to figure out is how to stay healthy. Last few years, the Bills have been hit hard by the injury bug. Vital players out for several weeks. Even the best choices out there aren't worth much if they can't contribute because of an injury.

    WHO?! $20 million?

  • Paul Piluso

    I believe Coery Graham is a solid addition. He has good experience and proven value on special teams and at CB. He adds depth to the secondary and should be able to compete for a starting role, though he may not be a proven starter as yet. Contract sounds like fair value. Good luck Corey and welcome home.
