Broncos Add Florence to Secondary

Posted May 10, 2012

On Thursday, free agent cornerback Drayton Florence signed with the Broncos.

UPDATED at 5 P.M. MST

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos on Thursday added another piece to their secondary, signing free agent cornerback Drayton Florence.

"Coming to Denver, meeting with Coach Fox, just knowing the history about the Broncos, I thought it was a great fit," Florence said. "I just thought it would be a good fit for me to come in here and bring my physical attributes and playmaking abilities to this team, try to get into the playoffs and make a run at a ring."

Florence spent the past three seasons with Buffalo after one year with Jacksonville and five with San Diego.

The cornerback played under Broncos Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio in Jacksonville, matched up against the Broncos twice in 2011 -- once in the preseason and once in the regular season -- and knows plenty about the AFC West from his years with the Chargers, so he said familiarity played a role in his signing, as well.

The 10th-year pro has 17 interceptions for his career -- including three last season, one of which he returned for a touchdown.

It marked the second interception return for a touchdown in his career.

"I bring versatility, experience and knowledge to that position," Florence said of the Broncos' depth at cornerback. "In the National Football League, very rarely do you see just two wide receivers line up. Now with the bigger tight ends that are more athletic, you need more defensive backs to match up. Competition is always great for a team. That's what I've come here to do, compete for a job, whether that be a starting job or a nickel role. Just come in and help this team in as many ways as I can, not only on defense but special teams, also. Whatever I'm asked to do, just coming out and competing and helping some of the young guys develop."

In addition, Florence has accumulated 441 tackles, 87 passes defensed, three forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries -- one for another defensive touchdown -- in his career.

"Bronco Nation it's official," Florence tweeted. "Ready to rock at Mile High!"
