Florence may help Whitner

The signing of veteran cornerback Drayton Florence could have a positive affect on safety Donte Whitner, if it works out for the Buffalo Bills. Florence is best inside. He will battle Ashton Youboty for the third corner spot. But if Florence works out, he also could give the Bills the option of playing a true four-cornerback dime defense, with he and Youboty on the inside and Terrence McGee and Leodis McKelvin on the outisde. That would allow Whitner to play deep and, maybe, make more plays. Whitner often last year got pulled into underneath coverage because of his versatility in covering tight ends or slot men man to man or in underneath zones. It would be good to see him play more centerfield and perhaps see if he can make more plays on the ball.
