The Chiefs won’t have Brandon Flowers for 16 games in the 2014 season, but there’s a very good chance they’ll see him twice on the field.
Flowers agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the San Diego Chargers. The terms of the deal include a $1.5 million base salary, $1.5 million signing bonus and another $2 million available through various personal and team incentives.
The Chargers did not officially announce Flowers’ signing, as they were still working on clearing a roster spot on their 90-man pre-season list. He was released by the Chiefs on June 13th and was contacted by numerous teams that were interested in his services. Flowers made two visits last week to San Diego and San Francisco.
When he joins the Chargers, Flowers will be the 11th cornerback on the roster for a team that struggled in pass defense last season. At the end of the year the starters were Shareece Wright on the right side and Richard Marshall on the left. San Diego selected Jason Verrett in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft and other cornerbacks on the roster are Crezdon Butler, Marcus Cromartie, Chris Davis, Greg Ducre, Brandon Ghee, Brandon Jones and Steve Williams.
