Veteran CB Drayton Florence Retiring From NFL

Josina Anderson spoke to free agent CB Drayton Florence who told her that he’s planning to announce his retirement from the NFL on May 1.

  • Florence added that he’s graduating from the University of North Florida on the same day.

Florence, 34, is a former second-round pick of the Chargers back in 2003. He has played for a number of teams over the course of his career including the Jaguars, Bills, Broncos, Lions, and Panthers.
