PHILADELPHIA — Longtime Buffalo Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.

McKelvin, 30, spent the last eight seasons with the Bills, who drafted him 11th overall in 2008 out of Troy University.

McKelvin has played in 98 career games. He has a dozen career interceptions and 56 pass breakups. He’s also compiled more than 3,000 yards on punt and kickoff returns and scored four return touchdowns.

His 2014 season was cut short by foot surgery and he needed a follow-up procedure just before training camp last summer.

He returned to action at midseason last year. He played both cornerback and safety and had 32 tackles with two interceptions and nine pass breakups.

Philadelphia ranked 30th in defence last year, 28th against the pass.
