The Buffalo Bills last week released veteran defenders George Wilson and Nick Barnett, which took at least some fans by surprise. There’s no surprise this time around as the club announced Thursday that it has released veteran cornerback Terrence McGee.
A mainstay in the organization since being drafted in 2003, McGee was extremely productive during his Buffalo playing career when healthy. Unfortunately his knees became bad over the last few year and he was unable to stay healthy, making him utterly ineffective.
He played in just 22 of 48 games over the past three seasons.
McGee scored seven touchdowns during his Buffalo career, including five kick returns. He also picked off 17 passes during his career, tying him for 15th in team history.
According to figures released by the Buffalo News yesterday, the Bills are saving $4.6 million in cap space by letting go of McGee.
At this point, it would be a major surprise if McGee continued his playing career elsewhere. However, don’t that to his agent, who told the Buffalo News McGee plans on resuming his career elsewhere.
