A day after losing safety Jairus Byrd to the New Orleans Saints, the Buffalo Bills filled a few holes of their own with some significant signings.
The Bills signed guard Chris Williams, cornerback Corey Graham, and linebacker Keith Rivers to contracts on Tuesday.
Williams is a former first round pick of the Chicago Bears, but spent the majority of the last two seasons with the St. Louis Rams. He signed a four-year deal worth $13.5 million.
Graham comes to Buffalo after a highly productive season with the Baltimore Ravens in 2013, during which he intercepted four passes in just five starts. He also made the Pro Bowl in 2011 as a special teams player with the Chicago Bears. This is also a homecoming for Graham, who grew up in Buffalo.
Rivers was a first round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals in 2008, but spent the last two seasons with the New York Giants. The oft-injured linebacker, who played in all 16 games for the first time in his career in 2013, signed a two-year deal.
