ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have released cornerback Drayton Florence.

Detroit signed the veteran defensive back earlier this month, but he was cut before practice Tuesday. Florence started five games for Carolina last season. He started three for the Lions the previous season.

The 33-year-old Florence has played in the NFL since 2003, spending his first five seasons with San Diego. After a season in Jacksonville, he played three years with Buffalo before his first stint with the Lions.
