The Bills agreed to a contract extension with defensive back Nickell Robey on Sunday, the team announced. Robey was entering the last year of his rookie contract. He produced 46 tackles and one sack in 16 games last season. "Nickell Robey has been a productive and dependable cornerback for our team since we signed him in 2013," Bills general manager Doug Whaley said. "I commend our scouting staff for identifying and signing a player of Nickell's caliber in the undrafted college free agent period. Since entering the NFL, Nickell has worked hard and taken advantage of his opportunities to make plays when called upon."
The Bills used rookie defensive back Nickell Robey in pass-rushing situations again in Week 16, and he got to the quarterback for the second straight game. Robey racked up two sacks in a 19-0 win over the Dolphins, one week after picking up his first career sack. Robey added four tackles Sunday.
Bills CB Nickell Robey is active Week 13 against the Falcons. Robey is dealing with an ankle injury. He was able to take part in full practice every day this week.
The Bills are in excellent shape as they prepare for their Sunday game against Atlanta. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams (back), who is questionable, is the lone player listed on their injury report that is not probable. Listed as probable are wide receivers Robert Woods (ankle) and Steve Johnson (groin) and cornerback Nickell Robey (ankle).
Bills defensive back Nickell Robey showed off his big play ability in Week 7 against the Dolphins, as he intercepted his first career pass in a 23-21 win. Robey picked off Ryan Tannehill on the first drive of the game, jumping in front of a pass intended for Brandon Gibson. He took advantage of an open field in front of him and returned the interception 19 yards for a touchdown. Robey added two tackles, and had three passes defended as well. Robey entered the game with seven tackles and three pass defenses in six games.
