The Buffalo Bills have reportedly released cornerback Drayton Florence. Florence led the Bills in takeaways in 2009.
The Buffalo Bills, like every other team in the NFL, are preparing for the 2012 season. The offseason is long and solidifying a game plan for a new year is tricky. Even though the offseason rosters have increased to 90 players this year, there are still plenty of tough decisions that need to be made. The Bill have reportedly cut one of their defensive players who has been a standout in recent years.
Florence has been with the Bills since 2009. The news of his release comes as a bit of a surprise; he signed a three-year, $15 million deal with the team in July of 2011.
Since being drafted by the San Diego Chargers in 2003, Florence has 441 tackles, three forced fumbles and 17 interceptions for a pair of touchdowns.
