When Brandon Flowers was released by the Kansas City Chiefs last Friday, he immediately became one of the most intriguing names on the free agent market. Interest has been slow to develop, but he finally has a serious suitor.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Brandon Flowers visited the San Diego Chargers on Wednesday, according to a source who has seen the cornerback. Flowers has strong ties to the Houston Texans and Atlanta Falcons staffs, but the Chargers have a bigger positional need.
The team's projected starters at cornerback are Jason Verrett and Shareece Wright, and the No. 3 cornerback job is up for grabs. At 28 years old, Flowers should still have a few years left as a high-quality starter. He probably wants to be paid like one, which could explain why this is his first visit.
