After losing ILB Paul Posluszny to the Jaguars, the Bills held on to CB Drayton Florence, as the two sides agreed to a three-year deal.

The ninth-year veteran announced on his Twitter page that he will remain in Buffalo. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the deal is worth $15 million.  

Florence started all 16 games last season, recording 15 passes defensed and three interceptions.

This was a big move by the Bills to keep their starting corner, who was reportedly sought after by the Jets. The Bills have a lot of money to spend and used some of it to keep a starter in the team's strongest unit, the secondary.
