The Denver Broncos sign free agent cornerback Drayton Florence to a two-year contract worth $4.5M with an option to earn another $1M in incentives. The 9-year veteran was with the Buffalo Bills the last three years where he started 45 out of 46 games, but he was slated to make $4 million this season and the Bills took South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore and LSU cornerback Ron Brooks in the draft, which made him expendable and the Bills released him last week.
Before Buffalo, Florence played one season with the Jacksonville Jaguars and before that he spent 5 years with the team that drafted him in the second round of the 2003 NFL Draft out of Tuskegee – San Diego Chargers.
In his career, he has 17 INTs, including three last season with one of them he took back for a touchdown; he has 2 pick six in his career. Florence has accumulated 441 tackles, 87 pass defensed, three forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries with one that went back for a touchdown.
