Veteran CB Brandon Flowers retires from NFL

Brandon Flowers is calling it a career.

The former Chargers and Chiefs cornerback announced his NFL retirement on Instagram on Tuesday after nine seasons in the league. NFL Network's Steve Wyche first reported the development.

The Chargersparted ways with Flowers, along with guard D.J. Fluker and wide receiver Stevie Johnson last March.

Flowers spent the past three years in San Diego after signing as a big-ticket free agent in 2014. Injuries wiped out much of last season for the 31-year-old defender, who was limited to just six games in 2016 after re-upping with the team the prior offseason.
