Description: Drayton Florence has returned to the Lions for the upcoming season, according to Tim Twentyman.
Insight: Florence played with the Lions in 2012 and then with the Carolina Panthers last season. He'll likely be down on the depth chart but the Lions are thin in the back row.

Description: Drayton Florence has unseated Leodis McKelvin as a starting corner opposite Terrence McGee
Insight: Florence has the inside track right now, but this could always change, so keep an eye on this battle. The winner will have some decent IDP value. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: The Jaguars have released Florence, just a year after signing him to a multi-year free-agent deal.
Insight: Florence didn't offer much to IDP owners in 2008, so his release is more significant in terms of what it means for Jacksonville. Paired with the release of receiver Jerry Porter, it's basically an admission by the team that it failed miserably in attempts to put itself over the top with last year's personnel moves. Florence's release should also solidify Brian Williams back at corner and keep the safety jobs open for the young guys. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Florence, who earned $8 million this past season, was released by the Jaguars on Wednesday.
Insight: Florence recorded 37 total tackles and forced one fumble in 15 games with the Jaguars last season. (SportsBuff.com)
