Terrence McGee Has Plenty On The Line In 2011

The Buffalo Bills have been busy at cornerback of late. First and foremost, the team drafted two corners in the 2011 NFL Draft, adding Aaron Williams of Texas in the second round, and following it up with Justin Rogers of Richmond in the seventh. Bills GM Buddy Nix has also made it clear that he hopes to re-sign veteran Drayton Florence, as well.

All of this movement makes one wonder what the future holds for Terrence McGee, a mainstay in the team's defensive backfield since 2003.

Contractually, McGee doesn't have a lot to worry about, as he's got three years remaining on a five-year, $27 million contract he signed in September of 2009. The biggest concern is that McGee - who will turn 31 this October - hasn't played a full 16-game schedule since 2004, and is coming off a season in which he missed seven games.

Nix made it clear that Williams, the rookie, will be given ample opportunity to lock down a starting job. With Florence a possibility to return and Leodis McKelvin still in line for playing time, McGee's potential role seems to be the murkiest at this point in time.
