CB Florence back with Bills; agrees to 3-year deal
Thursday, July 28, 2011
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Both Drayton Florence and a person familiar with talks have confirmed that the free agent cornerback has agreed to a three-year contract to return to the Buffalo Bills.
Florence discussed his return on Buffalo's WGR Radio Thursday morning, saying he's excited to be back. The interview came a day after Florence had posted a note on his Twitter account announcing to fans that he's back and he'll see them at training camp in suburban Rochester. Players report on Friday.
The person confirmed the agreement, and told The Associated Press that the Bills are now out of the cornerback market. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the deal.
The Bills also announced they have signed rookie seventh-round pick, hulking defensive tackle Michael Jasper.
