What If The Bills Can't Re-Sign Drayton Florence?

On Wednesday, we asked you what would be a comfortable cost limit for the Buffalo Bills to re-sign cornerback Drayton Florence. Using a four-year, $22 million contract as precedent, the general response was a favorable one to the idea of bringing Florence back at that salary.

Like linebacker Paul Posluszny, the Bills have expressed interest in bringing Florence back. Without Florence, the cornerback position looks rough around the edges.

They wouldn't be lacking for options at the top of the depth chart, to be certain, as Terrence McGee, Leodis McKelvin and Reggie Corner all have plenty of experience, while rookie Aaron Williams looks ready to play right away. The position would lack some clarity, however, as McGee is coming off of injury, McKelvin remains frustratingly inconsistent, Corner is more of a sub-package guy, and Williams is inexperienced. Depth would still be a problem, and it'd be a virtual lock that the team courted a veteran free agent at the position.

With Florence on board, the position would be not only deeper, but more defined and, perhaps most importantly, bigger and more physical. Were he to return, he'd be a strong bet to start, and would be the team's top cornerback.
