The new broom continues to sweep at One Bills Drive. And the Buffalo Bills have released another veteran from the defensive side of the ball.
On Thursday, the team parted ways with veteran cornerback Terrence McGee, a former fourth round draft pick in 2003. He arrived in Buffalo in 2003 along with kicker Rian Lindell and defensive end Chris Kelsay, making the trio the three longest-tenured Buffalo Bills on last year’s roster.
The move comes three days after the team released veterans Nick Barnett and George Wilson.
Bills General Manager Buddy Nix praised McGee’s 10-years of service to the franchise in a statement released Thursday.
“Terrence has been a contributor to the Bills organization for 10 years and we thank him for his efforts on the field and off,” Nix said. “We wish him the best of luck in the future.”
McGee struggled through the 2012 season as he battled back from knee surgery. He played in seven games for the Bills before going on injured reserve November 6th. McGee’s injury problems mounted over the last three seasons, as he played in just nine games in 2010 and six in 2011.
With 17 career interceptions, McGee is tied for 15th all time in franchise history. He had his best year defensively in 2007 when he started 15-games and finished the year with four interceptions.
