Report: Bills agree to four-year, $20M deal with Leodis McKelvin

It's not the sort of noise the Bills made at the start of last year's free agency, but agreeing to a deal (or reportedly agreeing to a deal) with cornerback and return man Leodis McKelvin is a nice start.

According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, Buffalo locked down McKelvin on a four-year deal worth $20 million.

McKelvin's not some ace cornerback or anything, but he's a capable player there. He makes his real difference in the return game, where he averaged an NFL-high 18.7 yards per punt return.

The returner took 23 punts last year and returned two of them for touchdowns. He also averaged 28.3 yards per kickoff return.
