Football Alum Corey Graham Joins Buffalo Bills
BUFFALO, N.Y. – Former University of New Hampshire football player and Super Bowl XLVII champion Corey Graham (Buffalo, N.Y.) has agreed to terms with his hometown Buffalo Bills. In accordance with team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Graham, 28, recorded 68 tackles (51 solo) along with career-highs of four interceptions and 12 passes defensed with the Baltimore Ravens in 16 games (five starts) in 2013. The seven-year veteran has played in 109 consecutive games, which is the second-longest active streak among NFL cornerbacks. Graham has notched career totals of 227 tackles (177 solo), 10 interceptions and 32 passes defensed.
At Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3, 2013, Graham recorded six tackles, four solo, and tacked on two pass breakups in the Ravens' 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, La. That performance capped a postseason in which he compiled 25 tackles, including an 11-tackle effort in the AFC Championship game victory at New England, and tallied two interceptions in the AFC Divisional game win at Denver.
Graham spent the first five seasons of his career with the Chicago Bears (2007-11), including a Pro Bowl berth on special teams in 2011. Graham became the 12th UNH football player ever drafted when the Bears selected him in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL Draft.
The 2006 UNH captain was a four-year starter for the Wildcats. The defensive back compiled 302 career tackles, 195 solo, with 12 interceptions, including three returned for touchdowns. He added 31 pass breakups and returned 65 kickoffs for 1,787 yards and two touchdowns. His collegiate career highlight was a 99-yard kick return versus Georgia Southern in the opening round of the 2004 NCAA Division I-AA (now FCS) Championship tournament.
