The Eagles signed cornerback Leodis McKelvin to a two-year deal, the team announced. According to Ian Rapoport, the contract is worth just over $6 million.

The 30-year-old spent his first eight NFL seasons in Buffalo, and played under Jim Schwartz in 2014. He had a career-high four interceptions and one forced fumble in just 10 games that season. However, he missed six games in 2014 and played just nine games in 2015 due to an ankle injury.

McKelvin has also had success as a returner, including in 2012 when he led the NFL with 18.7 yards per punt return and two touchdowns. When the Eagles played the Bills last season, McKelvin intercepted Sam Bradford in the fourth quarter.

McKelvin will speak to the media at 5:30.
