The Philadelphia Eagles announced in an official statement that they have signed former Buffalo Bills defensive back Corey Graham. In Philly, Graham will reunite with former Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. Graham experienced arguably his most successful season in 2014 under coach Schwartz.
Graham, cut by the Bills in March, was a part of the team’s housecleaning at the safety position this offseason, which involved the signing of Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer, as well as the release of Aaron Williams.
His fit with the Eagles is a question mark, as they seem to be somewhat set at safety with Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod as the starters and Terrence Brooks as the immediate backup. The team does, however, need help at cornerback, as Jalen Mills and Patrick Robinson have both been inconsistent starters. No doubt Graham’s special teams ability will factor in as well.
Either way, it will be an uphill struggle to make the roster for Graham. Here’s hoping the former Bills’ fan favorite makes the cut come September 3rd.
