ALLEN PARK, Mich. - Drayton Florence was cut by the Denver Broncos on Friday but two days later, the cornerback has agreed to terms with the Detroit Lions.
The ten-year NFL veteran posted the following message via Twitter to put an end to the rumors:
"A setback is nothing but a setup for a comeback < Detroit Lions > let's get ready for St. Louis."
Florence signed a two-year deal with the Broncos in May after being released from Buffalo; however, Denver kept five cornerbacks when they trimmed their roster to 53.
Florence, 31, visited the Lions practice facility in Allen Park, Mich., on Sunday when he passed his physical.
In order to make room for Florence, the team must make a move to clear a player from the roster. That adjustment has not been announced.
