The Buffalo Bills released CB Leodis McKelvin
A long time Bill, having been drafted by the club 11th overall in 2008, McKelvin played just 9 games last year as he recovered from a 2014 ankle injury but was a solid player when healthy. The release clears $3.9million from the Bills cap and clear room for Rex Ryan to make a run at Antonio Cromartie as has been rumoured. At 30 years old and with a thin market at Corner in Free Agency this year, McKelvin will likely find suitors on the open market come next week.
More Franchise Tags signed
Often a contentious issue for players that leads to hold-outs, teams will be relieved at the speed with which tagged players are signing their tenders this year. After Kirk Cousins signed his tender on Thursday, Bill Tackle Cordy Glenn, Rams Corner Trumaine Johnson and Ravens Kicker Justin Tucker followed suit yesterday and will be available to report to their teams for mini-camp without distraction.
