Source: Bills re-sign McKelvin

Buffalo Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin has become the

NFL’s highest-paid returner.

A source told that McKelvin has agreed to a

four-year, $20 million contract with the Bills. Further financial

details were not immediately available.

McKelvin, 27, was set to become an unrestricted free-agent when

the NFL signing period opened Tuesday. He enjoyed a spectacular

season on special teams for the Bills. McKelvin averaged an

NFL-high 18.7 yards on his 23 punt returns and scored twice. He

also averaged 28.3 yards on 18 kickoff returns.

McKelvin, the 11th overall pick in the 2008 NFL draft, started

four games at cornerback and played in nine others. He intercepted

one pass and registered three interceptions.
