Leodis Mckelvin

Leodis McKelvim is a solid cornerback but has struggled to command a starting spot with the Buffalo Bills. However, he has proven to be a dangerous kickoff and punt returner, ; leading the NFL last season in in punt return yards average while scoring a combined four touchdowns.

The Bills decided that he was worth keeping signing him to a contract extension.

Cornerback Leodis McKelvin is staying in Buffalo after the Bills reached an agreement to re-sign their 2008 first-round draft pick on Saturday.

A person familiar with the negotiations said McKelvin agreed to a four-year contract worth a little over $20 million. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Bills did not reveal the contract terms in announcing the agreement with McKelvin.

Used mostly as a third cornerback last year, McKelvin had one interception in 13 games, including four starts. He missed the final three games because of a groin injury. Overall, he has six interceptions in 64 games, with only 33 starts.
