Corey Graham wanted a chance in Baltimore.

He got that and played his way into a well-deserving contract after two seasons. But after working his way up from a special teams player in Chicago to a much-needed contributor in Baltimore, it was time for him to not only be a starter, but get paid like on.

On Wednesday, that happened.

Graham will now be a member of the Buffalo Bills and should help out a defense that was inconsistent at times in 2013. A talented cornerback, he just wasn't going to jump Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith in the base package. It was a nice luxury for the Ravens to have, but one that couldn't last for too long.

Graham is also a native of Buffalo, so this is a return home for him. And not only that, he gets to be a starting cornerback for his hometown team.

His impact will be missed in Baltimore. But as the saying goes, it's now the next man up.
