Former Chiefs and Chargers CB Brandon Flowers is retiring after nine seasons in the NFL.
A second-round pick in 2008, Flowers spent the first six seasons of his career with the Chiefs before signing on with the Chargers for the final three. Flowers has a lengthy concussion history that likely is playing a large role in this decision. Flowers, 31, met with the Cardinals last month and also spoke with the Steelers and Patriots. Flowers went to one Pro Bowl and picked off 21 passes. Mon, Aug 7, 2017 08:13:00 PM

Date:

Free agent CB Brandon Flowers will meet with the Cardinals on Wednesday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter adds Flowers has "also been talking with the Patriots." Once among the league's most underrated corners, Flowers flamed out in San Diego while battling a multitude of concussions. He drew some interest from the Steelers in March, but nothing came of it. Flowers would compete for snaps opposite Patrick Peterson in Arizona. He would likely man slot corner between Stephon Gilmore and Malcolm Butler in Foxboro.

The Steelers have been in contact with the reps for free agent CB Brandon Flowers.

Cut by the Chargers, Flowers is not yet ready to sign but could circle back to the Steelers later on. Pittsburgh has also been linked to former Patriots CB Logan Ryan. Clearly, the Steelers are looking to improve their secondary.

Chargers released CB Brandon Flowers.

Flowers' $9-million salary was set to become guaranteed on Saturday, so it was only a matter of time before he was cut. The move saves $7 million against the cap. Flowers ended last season on injured reserve with a concussion and has a concerning history of brain injuries. The 31-year-old may opt to call it a career.

ESPN Chargers reporter Eric Williams expects San Diego to move on from CB Brandon Flowers this offseason.

Flowers turns 31 next month and missed the final six games of the season with a concussion. He's had a history of brain injuries and could be contemplating his playing future. The Chargers can save $7 million against the cap by releasing Flowers and have Casey Hayward and Jason Verrett as starters.

Chargers placed CB Brandon Flowers on injured reserve with a concussion, ending his season.

Flowers hasn't played since Week 10 and has a concerning history of concussions. He appeared in just six games this season as the Chargers' slot corner. Casey Hayward has emerged as the Bolts' top corner, while Trevor Williams and Craig Mager have taken over as the Nos. 2 and 3 cover men. Flowers turns 31 in February, and San Diego can save $7 million by cutting him in 2017.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) is out for Week 14 at Carolina.

He remains out indefinitely with an increasingly concerning brain injury.
Fri, Dec 9, 2016 03:09:00 PM

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

Flowers has been out since suffering a concussion Week 10 against the Dolphins, and it does not look like he is on track to return this week. With a long and scary history with concussions, it would not be surprising if Flowers sat out the rest of the season. Trevor Williams saw a bump in snaps with Flowers out Week 12.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 12.

Flowers has a bad concussion history. We may not see him back anytime soon.
Fri, Nov 25, 2016 03:13:00 PM

Brandon Flowers exited Week 10 against the Dolphins with a concussion.

The side of Flowers' head slammed into Ryan Tannehill's leg at the end of a scramble in the third quarter. Flowers stayed down on the turf for a couple minutes before walking off on his own. Flowers has a long and concerning history with head injuries. He sat out four games earlier this season because of a concussion and has suffered four in the last three seasons.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 06:19:00 PM

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) returned to a full practice on Wednesday.

That puts Flowers on track to play Sunday against Denver. He'll be returning from a four-game absence. Having him back should give the Chargers' secondary a big boost. Only eight teams have allowed more passing yards per game than San Diego this year.
Wed, Oct 26, 2016 06:50:00 PM

Chargers slot CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Falcons.

It's a slight upgrade to the matchup for Mohamed Sanu, who saw ten targets last week. In a likely high-scoring affair between the Chargers and Falcons, Sanu is worth a look as a WR4/flex play in PPR leagues.
Fri, Oct 21, 2016 03:01:00 PM

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) is out for Week 6 against the Broncos.

Flowers had little chance of suiting up this week with San Diego hosting the Broncos on Thursday night. He remains in the league's concussion protocol. With Flowers sidelined and Jason Verrett (ACL) on injured reserve, Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders should be in for big weeks.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Flowers and Jason Verrett out last week, the Raiders receiving duo of Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree combined for 9-185-2 against a depleted San Diego secondary. Casey Hayward has been fantastic this year, but struggled some in Week 5, including allowing a 20-yard score to Crabtree late in the game. Emmanuel Sanders leads the league in red-zone targets with 12, while Demaryius Thomas ranks towards the top of the league in FPs per target. Both are perfectly suitable GPP targets in Week 6.
Wed, Oct 12, 2016 05:29:00 PM

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) has yet to resume practicing.

He appears poised to miss his third straight game on Thursday. Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders will be running relatively free in San Diego.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 5.

Slow to recover from his concussion, Flowers will miss his second straight game after not practicing all week. The Chargers will be without two of their top-three cornerbacks following the loss of Jason Verrett (ACL surgery). This is good news for the fantasy matchups of Derek Carr and his wide receivers.
