Corey Graham will get a chance to continue his NFL career in Philadelphia.
The Buffalo native, who spent the past three seasons with his hometown Bills, signed Thursday with the Eagles. The 32-year-old Graham was released by the Bills in a salary-cap move in March. He had started every game for the Bills the past two years, and in 2016 took 1,055 of 1,074 defensive snaps. His released saved the Bills more than $4 million in cap space.
Graham is entering his 11th NFL season. Prior to the Bills, he spent time with Baltimore and Chicago, winning Super Bowl XLVII with the Ravens. He has 64 career starts with 612 tackles and 15 interceptions.
Graham will be surrounded by plenty of familiar faces in Philadelphia. He joins former teammates Ron Brooks and Nigel Bradham on the Eagles' defense under the direction of Jim Schwartz, who coached Graham with the Bills in 2014.
