Terrence McGee Released By Buffalo Bills

Tom Pennington

After a decade spent in Buffalo, the Bills have parted ways with veteran cornerback Terrence McGee. The move frees up $2.1 million.

The Buffalo Bills announced on Thursday that the team has released veteran cornerback Terrence McGee. He was scheduled to be paid a $350,000 roster bonus at the start of the new league year, and was on the books for $1.75 million in base salary, as well.

A 2003 fourth-round pick out of Northwestern State, McGee, now 32, became a fixture in Buffalo - first as a kick returner, then as a cornerback - before injuries caused him to miss 31 games over the course of the past four seasons. He took a pay cut last year to stay with the team for one more run, but lasted only seven games before a knee injury ended his Bills career.

McGee moves on to the next phase of his career as the most prolific return men in franchise history. He made the Pro Bowl in 2004 when he returned three kicks for scores in one season, and then averaged a whopping 30.2 yards per return in 2005. He finished his Bills career with 5,450 return yards and five touchdowns. He also started 91 games at cornerback for the Bills, recording 17 interceptions, three sacks, three forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries, scoring another two touchdowns along the way.

McGee's release has been expected since his season ended in 2012, and the Bills have been in a full-on youth movement at the position for about a year now.
