Brandon Flowers Met With The San Diego Chargers


When the Kansas City Chiefs released Pro-Bowl corner back, Brandon Flowers, speculation began to run rabid about who would be the first to make an offer to the 6 year veteran.

Well, in a possible nightmare scenario for some Chiefs fans, the first team to make a move for Flowers is none other than AFC West rival, the San Diego Chargers.

The Chargers are in need of secondary help, as they finished with one of the worst pass defenses in the league last season. They drafted TCU corner back, Jason Verett with hopes of him making an impact right away. That doesn’t seem likely, as he’s been recovering from surgery to fix a torn labrum back in March so his practice time has been limited.

Signing Flowers (28) would immediately make him the best corner on their roster and could be a good compliment to safety, Eric Weddle.

Some speculated that Flowers wasn’t happy towards the end of his time with KC so perhaps his choice in San Diego is a bit spiteful towards Andy Reid and his former team. All signs indicate that Flowers wants to be in San Diego, as the Chargers are his only scheduled visit so far.

There is said to be up to 10 teams interested in him and his only scheduled visit is with San Diego? Hmmm…

If he does sign with the Chargers, it wouldn’t be the first time the Chiefs would have to deal with a good player going to a division rival. I’m looking at you Neil Smith.

We’ll make sure to keep an eye on this situation as it continues to unfold.

How do our readers feel about Flowers possibly going to the Chargers? Personally, I think it would suck.

    Albert Lewis did the same thing with the LA/Oakland Raiders and it hurt but we beat the crap out of them so it didn’t matter!

      Good point!

    The Chiefs let him go mostly because of money and he wasn’t happy playing inside at nickel, so it was best for both parties. Flowers will end up where he can get the best deal so if he goes to San Diego then so be it. I really don’t care because one player doesn’t make a football team.
