Leodis McKelvin’s agent says he’s been talking with the Bills

According to the Associated Press, Leodis McKelvin’s agent Hadley Engelhard told them that he’s scheduled to meet with the Buffalo Bills on Friday as they work towards trying to get a contract extension completed.

McKelvin’s agent, Hadley Engelhard, told The Associated Press on Thursday that negotiations are ongoing, and the two sides are scheduled to talk again Friday. He described talks as being in “the beginning stages.”

Barring a deal being reached with Buffalo, Engelhard is preparing to start entertaining offers from other NFL teams on Saturday. That’s when a three-day window opens allowing teams to begin contacting players before they’re eligible to become free agents on Tuesday.

The Bills could still re-sign McKelvin before the free-agency period opens, but they risk the player’s asking price going up once he’s allowed to talk with other teams.

“Things will pick up on Saturday, but I don’t rule anything out until a deal is done,” Engelhard said.

Mckelvin has been a solid player for the Bills since being drafted 11th overall in the 2011 draft.
