Bailey, Porter and Florence with Harris in the mix would be great.

We're going to have a CB named Florence?

After visiting the Titans on Wednesday, free agent CB Drayton Florence will meet with the Broncos. Florence would presumably battle Chris Harris for nickelback duties in Denver. In addition to the Titans and Broncos, the Chargers are also believed to be interested in the veteran cornerback. May 8 - 2:16 PM Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter

He's DONE. Absolute liability in run support and gets toasted early and often. 31 years old and shows it. As a PART time (meaning a few plays) nickel and he comes SUPER CHEAP..maybe then but he's probably worse than Goodman. This makes no sense. Bills cut him for reason and replaced him with a top pick Gilmore and another CB.. Brooks in the 4th.

Hope Elway can do better than this or maybe Xanders needs to come back! Can't believe I just typed that but damn...I sure hope TN or SD signs him!

see you lost all creditability right there. that's almost not possible with the slop Goodman put up over his years with Denver that he called coverage.

he's a vet who can come in and help ensure stability of our CB position.
that helps us go from Champ,Goodman & Harris to now Champ,Porter,Florence,Harris and Bolden. that's a significant upgrade to the roster.

The primary reason was $$$. He was due $4M this year and $5M next year.

he would battle Harris for nickel duties, I wouldn't be too worried about trotting him out there 10-15 plays a game at max

Porter is the starter, Florence would be the nickel unless he became all world. this is a upgrade.

Goodman wouldn't have been a bad nickel corner.

Good depth. Sign him up. We need a CB with experience playing inside and out.

If he signs cheap it isn't a bad move but I'd rather give Bolden, Judie, Vaughn, and Thompson all a chance to fill the role instead.
