Buddy Nix: Donte Whitner "Probably Won't" Be Back

Over the weekend, as the Buffalo Bills were adding two defensive backs within the first 100 picks of the 2011 NFL Draft, two free agent Bills defensive backs were openly wondering about their future with the team on Twitter.

When the Bills selected Texas cornerback Aaron Williams in the second round, Drayton Florence instantly believed that his time in Buffalo was up, tweeting the following message: "Congrats Arron williams I guess im done in buffalo enjoyed it while it lasted bills have the best fans!!!"

Donte Whitner, who has, to put it mildly, exhibited odd behavior ever since the season ended - starting with cleaning out his locker well before his teammates to avoid media on locker clean-out day, and ending with an apparent Twitter meltdown over the past few days - also seems ready to fly the coop. After the Bills selected safety Da'Norris Searcy, Whitner tweeted the following: "Congrats Buffalo. On ur. Draft picks....lol".

Yesterday, GM Buddy Nix spoke with Shredd and Ragan on WEDG 103.3 to talk about the draft, and was asked about the future of his two free agent defensive backs. Nix made the organization's stance very clear.

"Drayton Florence, absolutely not," Nix said when asked if the two were done in Buffalo. "We think Drayton wants to be here, and we want him here. We're going to try to sign Drayton Florence. Donte Whitner, I don't think wants to be here, and he probably won't."
