The Buffalo Bills shakeup continues as they parted ways with 11-year veteran cornerback Terrence McGee on Thursday. McGee was one of the longest tenured members of the Bills, playing for the team for 10 seasons. McGee had one year remaining on his contract for an affordable $1.75 million next season but he would have counted roughly $4.5 million against the salary cap for the Bills.
Once a dynamic player at his position, McGee has struggled with injuries in the last few seasons, landing on the injured reserve list in three of the last four years. Despite being released, McGee told reporters that he plans to try to continue his career and hopes to land with another team in 2013.
“This is definitely not it. I feel like I still have something left to prove, to go out there and show I can still play,” McGee said.
McGee served two roles for the Bills, corner and kick returner. He was voted on to the Pro Bowl roster in 2005 as a special teams player and has five career kickoff returns for touchdowns. He has recorded 17 interceptions in 122 career games. In 2005, he became the first player in NFL history to return and interception and a kickoff for a touchdown.
