Free agent CB Terrence McGee would "love" to re-sign with the Bills for a lower price, but hasn't been given "any indication that could happen."
McGee has to get his knee healthy for any team to show interest. "I'm trying to get my knee back to 100 percent and hopefully find a landing spot somewhere else," he said. The Bills are unlikely to give the aging and injury-prone McGee another chance. Fri, Feb 15, 2013 09:07:00 AM

Bills released CB Terrence McGee.

McGee, 32, ended three of the last four seasons on injured reserve, and he hasn't played 16 games since 2004, his second season in the NFL. In 2012, he played in just seven games, struggling to return to form after patellar tendon surgery. The Bills signed McGee to a new two-year deal last offseason, and his release clears his $1.75 million base salary and $4.46 million cap hit off the 2013 books. If McGee can show he's healthy, he might be able to get a one-year deal on the open market.

Bills placed CB Terrence McGee (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Unable to practice on consecutive days after offseason patellar tendon surgery, McGee hasn't played since Week 7. Coach Chan Gailey confirmed that McGee will require a minor procedure on the knee. Battling an array of injuries, the 31-year-old hasn't played more than 11 games in any of the past four seasons. He seems unlikely to collect his $1.75 million salary and $350,000 roster bonus in 2013.

Bills coach Chan Gailey said Monday that CB Terrence McGee (knee surgery) is "struggling to come back," and that there's "some concern with his recovery time."

McGee has yet to miss a game since undergoing preseason knee surgery, but apparently suffered a setback at some point. He did not practice during the Bills' bye week, and is iffy for Week 9. McGee is just the Bills' No. 4 corner, but Buffalo's overmatched defense can ill-afford to lose any pieces.

Bills CB Terrence McGee (knee surgery) will resume practicing Monday.

McGee suffered a setback in the third preseason game, but says he's back to where he was before. "I’ll definitely be practicing on Monday," McGee said. "I feel alright now. I feel like I did before the game. So I’m back on track like I should be." McGee should slot in at dime back if he's ready for Week 1. Steph Gilmore, Aaron Williams, and Leodis McKelvin are Buffalo's top three corners.

Bills CB Terrence McGee has encountered a setback in his recovery from patellar tendon surgery.

"His knee got a little weaker in practice yesterday so we're sitting him and seeing where he goes looking into the future," said coach Chan Gailey, who expressed concern over McGee's early-season availability. "Terrence has had a couple of setbacks during the course of camp and preseason practice."
Tue, Aug 28, 2012 07:14:00 PM

Bills CB Terrence McGee (recovery from knee surgery) has played "sparingly" thus far in camp.

"When you talk about percentages of where he is he gains a percentage or two every day," coach Chan Gailey said. "He never makes a jump of 10-15 percent so it’s slowly but surely coming." McGee is not expected to play in Friday's preseason game. His roster spot is very much in jeopardy.
Mon, Aug 13, 2012 07:32:00 PM

Bills CB Terrence McGee admitted concern over his roster spot.

McGee has been beaten down by injuries of late. He appeared in just six games due to hamstring and knee issues last year and then underwent patellar tendon surgery. The nine-year Bills veteran hasn't been able to practice at full speed yet in training camp. "I'm at the back of the line right now," McGee said. "There are guys way in front of me right now."

Bills CB Terrence McGee (patellar tendon surgery) has been cleared to practice in training camp.

"I'd be lying if I said I was 100 percent," said McGee. "But I'll be in there today getting some reps." He should have the inside track on Buffalo's nickel/slot cornerback job this season. Aaron Williams and Stephon Gilmore will be the starters outside.
Wed, Jul 25, 2012 06:08:00 PM

Terrence McGee, Leodis McKelvin, Justin Rogers, and rookie Ron Brooks are competing for the Bills' nickel corner job.

McGee was expected to kick inside in the nickel last season, but missed significant action due to hamstring and knee injuries. McKelvin barely played the slot last season, but has been used there "a good deal" in spring practices. Rogers and Brooks have impressed this offseason and are heavily in the mix. The four-man competition figures to run well into the preseason.

Bills CB Terrence McGee is "shooting for training camp" in his return from patella tendon surgery.

"So hopefully I'll be 100 percent and be able to go out there and compete for a job," said McGee. "It's never been this long for me. I had surgery in November so it's going to be June and I still don't feel ready. I've never been through something like this." There's a good chance McGee will have to start the season in subpackages.
Wed, May 23, 2012 09:02:00 AM

Bills CB Terrence McGee (patella tendon surgery) concedes he's "nowhere near" where he needs to be as far as straight-line running.

McGee hopes to be cleared for football activities by the end of OTAs, but the recent history of players returning from torn patellas doesn't bode well. McGee, now 31, has missed 17 games over the past two years due to hamstring and knee injuries. He's no longer guaranteed a roster spot with Stephon Gilmore on board.
Fri, May 4, 2012 08:44:00 AM

Updating a previous item, Bills CB Terrence McGee's (patella tendon surgery) "restructured" contract is actually a brand new two-year deal.

As opposed to a restructuring, McGee lowered each of his final two base salaries and received a $300,000 signing bonus. His 2012 salary is now $1.35 million, and McGee can make $1.75 million in salary in 2013. Per's Aaron Wilson, McGee will earn just over $4 million if he makes the Bills' roster in both seasons. Now being paid like a nickel back, McGee's 2012 salary cap number was lowered from $6.3 million this year to $3.78 million.
Wed, Feb 22, 2012 06:52:00 PM

The Bills have worked out a restructured contract with CB Terrence McGee, who is coming off patella tendon surgery and was owed a $3.6 million salary in 2012.

The deal lowered his base salary to $1.35 million and gave him a $300K "signing" bonus. McGee would have been cut without the redo. The 31-year-old tore his patella tendon in November and may not be ready for the start of training camp, let alone Week 1. While McGee held his own when healthy in 2011, the Bills can't count on him for a big 2012 impact after the brutal injury.
Wed, Feb 22, 2012 05:21:00 PM

Bills CB Terrence McGee (patella tendon surgery) reportedly expects to receive medical clearance by May.

That's a highly optimistic timetable. McGee may be cleared to resume football activities in time for minicamps, but that's entirely different than regaining pre-injury form. We suspect McGee will be eased into training camp if he manages to retain a roster spot with a $3.6 million salary.
