                       === Bills bring back McKelvin ===
 
 Orchard  Park,  NY  (Sports  Network)  -  The  Buffalo  Bills  have  prevented
 cornerback/return  specialist Leodis  McKelvin  from  reaching the  free-agent
 market, with the club announcing it has agreed to terms on a contract with the
 former first-round pick on Sunday.
 
 Terms  of  the pact  were not disclosed  by the team,  though the Buffalo News
 reported  the  deal to be for  four years and  worth more than $20 million, of
 which $7.5 million will be guaranteed.
 
 McKelvin has spent his entire five-year career in Buffalo after being taken by
 the  Bills with  the 11th overall selection in the 2008 draft. The 27-year-old
 is regarded as one of the league's premier punt returners and led the NFL with
 an average of 18.7 yards per runback in that category this past season.
 
 The Troy product also took back a franchise-record two punts for touchdowns in
 2012  and  has four return scores  (3 punt, 1  kickoff) over the course of his
 career.
 
 As a defender, McKelvin recorded 21 tackles, one interception and three passes
 defensed  while  starting four  of 13  games last season.  He has compiled six
 picks and 30 passes defensed over 64 career contests.
