Chargers CB Brandon Flowers said he's 10-12 pounds lighter than he was at this point last year.
Flowers got complacent after signing a four-year, $36-million deal last offseason, showing up to OTAs overweight and struggling through a career-worst season. "I had a dad bod coming in last year," said Flowers. "I started off bad last year, and it just kept on going downhill." Impressed by teammate Melvin Ingram's physical transformation, Flowers got serious about his conditioning by working with Miami-based trainer David Alexander. "Last year was unacceptable," said Flowers. "I knew what kind of place I was in last year, and I just can’t go back to where I was." Flowers earned PFF's third-worst cornerback grade out of 111 qualifiers in 2015. May 22 - 12:25 PM

Chargers placed CB Brandon Flowers (knee) on injured reserve.

It ends a highly-ineffective season for Flowers, who was one of the league's worst corners when healthy. He'll be replaced by Patrick Robinson opposite Jason Verrett. Due a $9.75M cap hit in 2016, Flowers is a candidate for offseason restructure. The Chargers promoted QB Brad Sorensen and activated DE Darius Philon in corresponding moves.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers was carted off the field with a knee injury in Sunday's Week 13 game against the Broncos.

He's done for the day. When healthy this season, Flowers has appeared all washed up. The Chargers recently moved him inside to slot corner, with Patrick Robinson taking over outside across from Jason Verrett.

Chargers LCB Brandon Flowers (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 5.

Flowers and Jason Verrett (questionable, foot) are expected to play Monday night. Both practiced fully Saturday after being limited early in the week. SS Jahleel Addae (questionable, ankle) will also start against the Steelers.
Sat, Oct 10, 2015 03:20:00 PM

Chargers LCB Brandon Flowers (concussion) practiced on Wednesday.

Like Malcom Floyd, Flowers suffered a brain injury in last Sunday's win over Cleveland. Flowers will likely need to pass a few more steps in the NFL's concussion protocol in order to receive clearance for Monday night.

Chargers LCB Brandon Flowers left Sunday's Week 4 game with a concussion.

He's done for the day.
Sun, Oct 4, 2015 06:49:00 PM

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday.

Flowers was a surprise inactive last week, but it looks like he is on track to return against the Browns. Jason Verrett (foot) was also a full participant on Wednesday after playing limited snaps Week 3.

Chargers LCB Brandon Flowers (knee) is inactive for Week 3 against the Vikings.

It's a surprise after he was listed as "probable" on the injury report. RCB Jason Verrett (foot) is active. Flowers should be considered week to week.
Sun, Sep 27, 2015 11:44:00 AM

Chargers reached an agreement on a four-year, $36M contract with CB Brandon Flowers.

The talented Flowers was an awful fit for Bob Sutton's press-man scheme with the Chiefs in 2013, which allowed the Chargers to land him cheaply one year ago. He proceeded to flourish, grading out as a top-15 corner in PFF's ranks. It's a nice re-signing by the Chargers, who can pair Flowers and Jason Verrett together for the next few years. Throw in safety Eric Weddle and they have the core of a very formidable secondary.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Chargers are close to re-signing free agent CB Brandon Flowers.

The Chargers have been in talks with Flowers, and the expectation is that a deal will get done. A top-15 corner by PFF last year, Flowers would be one of top options available on the open market. With Shareece Wright a free agent, San Diego will have a major need opposite Jason Verrett if Flowers doesn't return.

Free agent CB Brandon Flowers said he hopes to re-sign with the Chargers.

Flowers said he was in negotiations with San Diego, but admitted he's likely to test free agency before finalizing a deal. This isn't a particularly strong class for cornerbacks, so Flowers should land a pretty lucrative deal on the open market. He was a top-15 corner in PFF's grades last season.
Thu, Mar 5, 2015 12:23:00 PM

The Dolphins have "internally discussed" free agent CBs Brandon Flowers and Kareem Jackson.

Both Flowers and Jackson serve as outside corners in their base defense and can cover the slot in sub-packages. So it may be telling that these two types of corners are on the Dolphins' radar. Miami is expected to cut Cortland Finnegan soon, and will be a player on the free agent cornerback market.
Sun, Mar 1, 2015 02:14:00 PM

Chargers LCB Brandon Flowers briefly left Week 16 against the 49ers with a right ankle injury.

Flowers had his ankle stepped on by a teammate at the end of a second-quarter run. He was able to walk off the field under his own power, but did not re-enter the game in the first half. He was able to return after the break.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 10:08:00 PM

Brandon Flowers (concussion) has resumed practicing.

Flowers is now on track to return against the Dolphins. It's good news for the Chargers with Jason Verrett (shoulder) already ruled out for Week 9. Flowers is in the midst of a nice bounce-back season, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 1 corner through the season's first eight weeks.
Thu, Oct 30, 2014 02:27:00 PM

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) will not play in Thursday's game against the Broncos.

Fellow CB Jason Verrett (shoulder) is questionable, obviously an awful time for San Diego to be banged up in the secondary. Richard Marshall and Shareece Wright are potential starters as Peyton Manning licks his chops. The Chargers will also be without ILB Manti Te'o (foot), OLB Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring), RB Donald Brown (concussion) and RB Ryan Mathews (knee).
