Bills Release Florence

May 4, 2012 Updated May 4, 2012 at 4:10 PM EDT

ORCHARD PARK, NY – (Bills Media Press Release) The Buffalo Bills today announced the release of CB Drayton Florence.

Florence played in 46 games with 45 starts in his three seasons with the Buffalo Bills.

Bills General Manager Buddy Nix released the following statement regarding the roster move:

“I want to thank Drayton for all he’s done for our team during his three years in Buffalo. But we have some good, young talent at the cornerback position that has tremendous upside. They need to take as many of the reps at practice as they can to continue to develop that talent. Our defense has gone through a number of changes since the end of last season and we feel that it’s necessary to give these young corners the opportunity to be in the lineup.”
