Vince Young Comes In For A Visit

Florence Released: In a bit of a surprise move, the Bills have released CB Drayton Florence. The team added two cornerbacks in last week's draft giving them a bit of a logjam at the position. It was thought Florence would still battle for either a starting or nickel position with the team. He was a starter most of last year. Buddy Nix thanked Florence in a statement for his three years of service to them. He added, "we have some good, young talent at the cornerback position that has tremendous upside. They need to take as many of the reps at practice as they can to continue to develop that talent. Our defense has gone through a number of changes since the end of last season and we feel that its necessary to give these young corners the opportunity to be in the lineup. Florence was paid a roster bonus of $250,000 in March. The move saves $4 Million in base salary that he was due to get this year. Front Office Page   Depth Chart.

Young Leaves Without Deal: Vince Young boarded a plane and left Buffalo without a signed contract after working out for the team yesterday. David Nelson was one of the receivers that he threw to and he said he looked really good and seemed to be in good shape. No deal is reportedly imminent with Young. Do you think the Bills should sign Young? Take our poll on our homepage and let us know!

Young Works Out: Vince Young worked out for the Bills in the fieldhouse this morning. He threw passes to David Nelson, Donald Jones, Naaman Roosevelt, and Marcus Easley.

Kelsay Won't Give Up Number: Chris Kelsay said he is not willing to give up the number 90 to Mario Williams who wore that number in Houston. Kelsay said he was not asked by Williams for the number but he told Williams he would not be giving it up and Mario understood. Kelsay said you get attached to a number and he has worn that number for the 10 years he has been with the Bills. Rumor has it Williams may switch to 92 which is currently worn by Alex Carrington.

Bills Serious About Young: WIVB-TV reports Vince Young is interrupting his honey moon to visit the Bills in Orchard Park today. ESPN's John Clayton reports the team is serious about signing Young who has received little interest on the open market. I wouldn't surprised to see Young sign before his visit is over assuming everything goes well with his physical.

Young Coming In: The Bills announced today that free agent QB Vince Young will be in town tomorrow for a visit. Buddy Nix made it clear that if they do sign him it is as a backup and re-iterated the team's committment to Ryan Fitzpatrick as their franchise quarterback. Nix told a Rochester radio station that Fitzpatrick just didn't get the help he needed and he was as hot a QB as there was in the first seven games of the season so they know he can do it. They are looking at Young as someone who can come in and create competition in the backup position. The current backup is Tyler Thigpen. If Young is signed he will be the favorite to be the backup guy as Thigpen didn't show much last season.

Johnson Surgery Successful: Stevie Johnson underwent groin surgery on Tuesday and his agent told WKBW-TV that it went very well and he will be good to go in no time. He's expected to be ready in time for Organized team activities at the end of the month.

Bills Feel They Filled Holes: Many of the draft experts have given the Bills high marks for their draft. They went it to it to fill holes and picked players for all their holes early on as Buddy Nix said everything fell right. It will be a few years before we know if they were successful but if they hit on a good portion of the picks they have done a good job of filling holes and adding depth. Draft Review.

10 UFAs Agree To Terms: The Bills announced today that they have agreed to terms officially with 10 undrafted free agents. They expect all 10 to sign their contracts before rookie minicamp begins on May 11th. Besides the 7 we addressed earlier today the team added another offensive lineman, coernerback, and linebacker. Depth Chart.

Unofficial Undrafted Signings: Right now it appears that the Bills have unofficially agreed to terms with seven undrafted free agents. With 11 roster spots open to get to the 90 man roster limit they have openings for four more signees. The biggest name on the unofficial list is Richmond QB Aaron Corp. He started his college career at USC before transferring, he was a highly recruited player out of high school. The team also reportedly signed three safeties including Division III linebcker turned strong safety Ian Wild. Front Office Page.

Draft Grade: The Bills seemed to have filled many holes during the draft but the big question is will the players be able to fill the specific holes? We know they got tremendous value in getting Cordy Glenn in round two but can he play left tackle or is he destined for right tackle or guard? We know T.J. Graham can flat out fly but can he play on the outside? Those are the main questions but two things are for sure, they got bigger on the offensive line and speed on defense. Draft Grade.
