Report: Bills, CB Florence agree to terms

ProFootballTalk.com is reporting that the Buffalo Bills have agreed to terms with free agent cornerback Drayton Florence.  Mike Florio reports that it's a two-year deal worth $6.6 million, with escalators built in that can carry it to $7.3 million total.

So much for the sentiment that free agent corner Jabari Greer might return.  The signing of Florence returns Buffalo's cornerback depth chart to five, as Florence will compete with Terrence McGee, Leodis McKelvin, Ashton Youboty and Reggie Corner for playing time next season.

Florence is coming off of a one-year stint in Jacksonville in which he failed to live up to a deal which was to pay out $12 million in bonus money.  Prior to last season, he developed a reputation as an above-average sub-package corner, recording ten interceptions in four years as the Chargers' nickel corner and as a spot starter.
