Drayton Florence Released By Buffalo Bills

 

The Buffalo Bills have released cornerback Drayton Florence.

The news first broke on Twitter from ProFootballTalk’s feed and soon thereafter was confirmed by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Florence, 31, was a member of the Bills for three full seasons, but 2011 was by far the worst year of his tenure in Buffalo.

Opposing quarterbacks had a 103 QB rating when throwing at Florence last season, and he was flagged for a handful of critical pass interference calls.

He totalled seven interceptions with the Bills, none bigger than his memorable pick-six against the New England Patriots last September.

Bills fans will never forget that moment.

A newly crowded secondary and $4 million in base salary in 2012 were probably the two main reasons Florence was let go.

Leodis McKelvin can now breathe easy.
