Today, we spotlight one of cornerback Drayton Florence’s rookie cards. This one is from 2003 SP Authentic and serial numbered 555/2200. Drayton played with the Chargers from 2003-2007. He is infamous to most Charger fans for his 3rd down head butt to Daniel Graham during the AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Patriots. His personal foul penalty kept a Pats drive alive and led to a field goal. The Chargers ended up losing the game by three points.
That was 5 years ago. Florence played for the Buffalo Bills last season, who released him after the draft. There was a lot of speculation that the Bolts were interested in bringing him back this season to provide some secondary depth. In fact, I thought he would be a great addition to the Chargers CB group. However, Denver swooped in and he signed with the Broncos. Now that he’s plays in Denver, I hope Philip Rivers lights him up every time we play against them.
