Orchard Park, NY – The Buffalo Bills today announced that the team has agreed to terms with free agent CB Corey Graham and LB Keith Rivers. In accordance with team policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed.

“Early in the free agency process, we identified Corey Graham as a player who would help our football team,” said Bills General Manager Doug Whaley.  “Graham is a smart, physical and tough cornerback who has had success with both the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens.  He is playmaker defensively and on special teams.  We believe he will help the Buffalo Bills improve in both areas in the years to come.”

Graham, a native of Buffalo and Turner-Carroll High School product, recorded 68 tackles (51 solo) along with career-highs of four interceptions and 12 passes defensed with the Baltimore Ravens in 16 games (five starts) in 2013.

The 6-0, 196-pound New Hampshire product has played in 109 consecutive games – the second-longest active streak among NFL cornerbacks – and posts career totals of 227 tackles (177 solo), 10 interceptions and 32 passes defensed.

Keith Rivers produced 42 tackles (22 solo) and one sack in 16 games (eight starts) with the New York Giants in 2013.

The 6-2, 235-pound University of Southern California product entered the NFL as a first-round (ninth overall) draft selection of the Cincinnati Bengals in 2008 and spent his first four years with the Bengals before joining the Giants in 2012. He has 262 tackles (171 solo) and three sacks in 62 NFL career games (47 starts).
