Report: Chargers want Drayton Florence

The San Diego Chargers are reportedly interested in seeing a familiar face fill their nickel cornerback position.

U-T San Diego is reporting that the Chargers expressed interest in Drayton Florence on Friday, just after he was released by the Buffalo Bills. Florence was a second-round pick by San Diego in 2003 and he spent five seasons with the Chargers. The nine-year veteran was lost in the shuffle in Buffalo, but he started 45 games in the past three seasons.

If signed by the Chargers, Florence would provide them outstanding experience from the nickel spot. If he can’t find a starting job elsewhere, I’d think Florence would be interested in returning to San Diego.
