The Broncos announced Friday that Florence was let go. It's a disappointing turn of events for the Broncos after hailing Florence as a premier offseason acquisition. In the end, the 31-year-old defender lost the nickel corner job to Chris Harris, an undrafted role player who started four games for Denver last season.
With Porter and Champ Bailey locked in at corner, Florence failed to justify his price tag after starting 45 games for the Buffalo Bills over the past three seasons. He previously spent one season with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2008 after logging five with the San Diego Chargers, who selected him in the second round of the 2003 draft.
