Three days after releasing linebacker Nick Barnett and safety George Wilson, they Bills cut cornerback Terrence McGee.

"Terrence has been a contributor to the Bills organization for 10 years and we thank him for his efforts on the field and off," Bills General Manager Buddy Nix said in a statement. "We wish him the best of luck in the future."

When healthy, McGee was a fine player who went to the Pro Bowl in 2004 as a kick returner. But injuries have been a problem for McGee for much of his career.

Over the past three seasons, he has played only 22 games, starting 10. He played seven games last season with no starts.

His is recovering from surgery on his left knee in November.

"Terrence is going to focus on getting healthy and looks forward to continuing his career," McGee's agent, Ron Raccuia, told The Buffalo News.

"We want to thank the Buffalo Bills because they've treated Terrence wonderfully for 10 years on the field and off the field. I couldn't say enough good things."
