Buffalo Bills Have Released Former Chargers CB Drayton Florence

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE

The Buffalo Bills have released former San Diego Chargers cornerback Drayton Florence (Adam Schefter). Flo is 31 years old and played with the Bolts from 2003-2007 and started 43 games along side Quentin Jammer in the blue and gold uniforms. He joined the Bills in 2009 and has been the starter in 45 games.

Should the Chargers take a flier on the veteran?

We only have 4 cornerbacks on the roster. Behind Antoine Cason and Jammer, we have two guys that are coming off of their rookie seasons, Marcus Gilchrist and Shareece Wright. We are looking to add a veteran to the group from free agency and Flo could be a nice addition to the roster. We wouldn’t need him to be the starter, but he could get some time playing over the slot and would be able to lend some of his wisdom to these younger corners.

Do you think the Chargers should bring back Flo?

    Chargers should make a play for Mike Jenkings who’s expendable after the Cowboys drafted Morris Clairborne and signed Brandon Carr.  I think Jammer took a step back last season and I don’t trust Cason at all.

       @@kencaminiti21 i agree we should take a look at Mike Jenkins. I think they are shopping him around, but if nobody bites on a trade, he might be put on the wire

    i just read a stat that he led the Bills with 14 penalties!!! Frickin Clary on defense!

    We need some shutdown cb. Atleast 1 that should bk one of our top priorities next draft.

  • BoJackRusso

    Well we need to do something at CB! When Jammer finally learned how to cover without mauling receivers for years, refs called BS interference calls because of his reputation. And now he just can’t keep up with anybody.
    I remember Cason’s first tackle in a regular season game. He faceplanted the guy and caused a fumble.
    Well that was short lived. Like Cammy said, I don’t have too much faith in Cason at all.
    He’s the type of guy a vet QB will go after on the first series, get burned and score a TD, blowing his confidence for the rest of the game.
     
    Jammer won’t lose confidence, he’ll just go back to putting hands all over people.
     
    I was pretty happy with MOST of AJ’s moves thus far, but we need a marquis corner. If that doesn’t happen, even with the defensive improvements, we could see a repeat of last season.
     
    Hell put Eric Weddle at corner. At least he’d give it everything he had!
     
    OK, maybe I’m just pissed about the Junior thing (sorry guys) I just want better cornerbacks.

       @BoJackRusso i am with you! i like the comment of Jammer will just put his hands all over the receivers again… for comparisons sake, like BIG BEN putting his hands all over…. nevermind!

      • BoJackRusso

         @epadaon LOL. I’m just in a mood this morning. And I have to go to the doctor.
        Hey, Acee just said we might go after him again. (Florence)

           @BoJackRusso hahaha… its all good.. think we are all in a mood. but this secondary is questionable and needs some depth… noticed acees comment.

  • Bleu

    We need to draft tyrann mathieu next year bottom line

    • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

       @Bleu honeybadger dont care!

  • Bleu

    For real bro the honeybadger is a problem for any offense he has shutdown corner skills he strips da ball intercepts passes tackles well and he plays special teams. I feel like he has more upside than mo_claiborne

    • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

       @Bleu i love that kid!!! even though he is small… love everything he does. i dont know if he will fall to us with the last pick in the draft though!

  • Bleu

    If I was the charters I’m doin everything possible even trade up. You got to have atleast one shut down corner. Even if it ain’t him we need a shutdown on the ball corner. Y do u thing the jets d has Ben so prolific?. Not to mention this year the eagles corner r going to be a problem. But bkuz of his size tyrann matheiu will go n da middle of the first round. Seriously our secondary needs s makeover
