Brandon Flowers meeting with Chargers


The Kansas City Chiefs released cornerback Brandon Flowers last Friday and while he hasn’t found a home yet, he could land in the backyard of a Kansas City division rival.  NFL.com’s Ian Rappaport is reporting via Twitter that the former Chief is meeting with the San Diego Chargers.

In veteran free agent news, the #Chargers are hosting CB Brandon Flowers on a visit today, source says. I believe it’s his first one.

Flowers who has solid ball skills has been rumored to have interest from ten different NFL teams, according to Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun.  So far Flowers hasn’t found a home.  The Chiefs had tried to trade Flowers around May’s draft but either found no suitors or no offers they liked.

The Chiefs decided that Flowers was expendable despite the fact he made his first Pro-Bowl of his career last season.  The Chiefs wanted a more physical cornerback to compete with more physical WR’s.  Last year the Chiefs used him primarily as a nickel back.  Statistically he had his worst season.  The Chiefs wanted to move in a different direction.  A six year veteran taken in the 2nd round by the Chiefs, Flowers at one time was a good ball handling corner.  He had 16 interceptions in his first five seasons and only one in 2013.

According to the report by Aaron Wilson, the Ravens, Detroit Lions, Vikings, and Falcons are some of the teams interested in the veteran.  The New York Jets are also a team that may show some interest given the slim depth at the position.
