Bills cornerback Nickell Robey was eligible to sign a contract extension after two seasons because he entered the league as an undrafted free agent and that’s just what he did on Sunday.
The team announced that Robey has agreed to an extension with the team. No details regarding the length or terms of the deal have been announced.
“Nickell Robey has been a productive and dependable cornerback for our team since we signed him in 2013,” Bills General Manager Doug Whaley said in a statement. “I commend our scouting staff for identifying and signing a player of Nickell’s caliber in the undrafted college free agent period. Since entering the NFL, Nickell has worked hard and taken advantage of his opportunities to make plays when called upon.”
In the statement announcing the deal, Robey said he’s looking forward to the more aggressive defense that Rex Ryan’s installed with the team this year.
Robey has played all 32 games for the Bills over the last two seasons and, befitting his name, he’s seen much of his time as a nickel corner. He has 86 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble in the Buffalo secondary.
