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.
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.

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…
Flowers has no other visits scheduled yet. Will re-evaluate the situation and whether to take more after spending time with the Chargers

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.
