Yeah why not, I believe he's a pretty good player and for low price can't hurt us

How much will he cost?
Is he any better than what we already have?
If he's our 3rd/4th CB, will he play special teams?

Spotrack shows that he would've been making $4M and $5M in 2012 and 2013 respectively, but I'm not sure for how little he'd be willing to sign with another team, and one with a good chance of making playoffs and more?

Oh, and Bills' buyout was $1.3M.

I wouldn't be against at least giving him a look-see and a chance to compete for a roster spot, if he would be willing to sign a cap friendly contract.

Really? They would have taken this guy over Asante Samuel?
Sorry, that's not a real question. The answer is no, no they would not.

Florence had 50 tackles and 3 picks last year, Samuel 34 and 3. Same age and Florence is bigger

Florence was a full time starter and played almost twice as many minutes as Samuel last year. The Eagles had Rodgers-Cromartie and Asomugha, They relegated Asante Samuel to nickelback and have been looking to deal him since last year. They obviously kept him out of the game as much as possible so that he couldn't hit any bonuses or whatever. Asante Samuel is a top-10 corner, this other guy is middle of the pack.

EDIT: 4 Pro Bowls, 3 First Team, Interception leader 2 years running vs. What exactly? A guy who got released by the Bills?
