Another day, another veteran cut for the Buffalo Bills, as it was announced just recently that the team released cornerback Terrence McGee.
Besides the cap space it has potentially cleared, McGee was cut due to the fact that he failed a physical with the team, which shouldn’t be a shock since the last four seasons he ended his season on Injured Reserve. The 10-year veteran cornerback has played his entire career with the Bills and had 17 career interceptions, however he has failed to record one since 2009.
Besides being a very good cornerback before the injury bug started biting him, McGee was also a very good return specialist too,as he had five kick off returns for touchdowns, and three in 2004 alone which gave him a Pro Bowl bid. It is cliche to say how much of a class act this guy was, but he was a tremendous guy off the field and was always involved in the Buffalo community trying to make it a better place.
After receiving the news, McGee said: “I’m trying to get my knee back to 100 percent and hopefully find a landing spot somewhere else,” McGee continued,”I definitely have not thrown in the towel. That’s not even in my brain right now. Hopefully, when I get healthy I’ll have a shot at a couple teams and show what I can do. Once my knee’s all right, I’m all right.”
McGee also noted he holds no grudge with the Bills and would welcome the chance to re-sign with them.
