- However, Rapoport adds that the Cowboys have looming interest in McKelvin as well.
It’s worth mentioning that signing McKelvin to a contract wouldn’t factor into a team’s 2017 compensatory picks, given that he was a roster cut.
McKelvin, 30, was in the final year of his four-year, $17 million contract when the Bills released him in a move that freed up $3.9 million in available cap space.
In 2015, McKelvin was limited to appearing in nine games for the Bills and recording 32 tackles, two interceptions and nine pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 83 cornerback out of 111 qualifying players.
