Buffalo Trying Out LBs Corey Nelson & Jermaine Grace

The Buffalo Bills are trying out linebackers Jermaine Grace and Corey Nelson this week, according to Albert Breer.

Jermaine Grace

Grace, 27, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Miami back in 2017. Atlanta elected to cut him loose in November and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Colts.

After brief stints with the Browns and Seahawks, Grace signed on with the Falcons late in 2018. He returned to Atlanta on a futures contract but was waived and signed with Seattle’s practice squad. 

Grace signed with the Browns’ practice squad but was later released and signed to the Giants’ taxi squad before they elected to release him last month. 

In 2019, Grace appeared in 12 games for the Falcons and recorded two tackles and no sacks.

Nelson, 28, is a former seventh-round pick of the Broncos back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,268,600 contract and made a base salary of $690,000 for the 2017 season before signing a one-year, $1.6 million contract with the Eagles. 

Unfortunately, the Eagles elected to release Nelson in a move that cleared $1 million of available cap space. After a brief stint with the Falcons, Nelson signed a futures contract with the Buccaneers but was among their final roster cuts. 

Nelson returned to the Broncos at the start of 2019, but his season was cut short when he tore his bicep during Week 8. 

In 2019, Nelson appeared in seven games for the Broncos, recording ten tackles and no sacks.
