The AFC East is now rookie holdout-free.

About 90 minutes after the Miami Dolphins confirmed QB Chad Henne was in house, the Buffalo Bills announced they had signed CB Leodis McKelvin, the 11th overall draft pick and the first DB off the board.

The Buffalo News is reporting that McKelvin's deal will be for five years at about $3.6 million per.

McKelvin's arrival to camp at St. John Fisher College -- he should be there Monday for the team's first practice in pads -- means he can start competing with incumbent Jabari Greer for Buffalo's starting spot on the left side.

Greer has a reputation for standing out in practices and training camp, so it won't be easy for McKelvin. But the Bills expect huge things from the rookie from Division I-AA Troy.
