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. Mar 8 - 4:00 PM

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.
Mar 7 - 6:43 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers was forced from San Diego's Week 7 game against the Chiefs with a concussion, and will not return.

Flowers put a huge second-quarter hit on Jamaal Charles at the goal-line, but ended up taking the worst of it. Amazingly, Flowers was briefly allowed to continue playing before being pulled. He was officially ruled out in the third quarter.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (groin) is active for Week 8 against the Chiefs.

Flowers, who has been playing at an extremely high level this season, gets to face his former team. Fellow CB Jason Verrett (shoulder) is inactive. Verrett is week to week. Also inactive for the Chargers are RB Ryan Mathews, RB Donald Brown, ILB Manti Te'o, WR Dontrelle Inman, DT Ricardo Mathews and OLB Jeremiah Attaochu.

The Union-Tribune San Diego reports CB Brandon Flowers' groin injury is considered "not too bad."

Flowers also dealt with a groin injury in Week 2. He should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Shareece Wright (knee) would replace Flowers opposite Jason Verrett.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers left Sunday's Week 6 win at Oakland with a groin injury and did not return.

The severity of Flowers' injury is unknown, so Chargers fans are left to hold their breath. The ex-Chief has been dominant this season, flashing legit All-Pro form through the first five weeks. If he misses any time, the Chargers should be able to plug in Shareece Wright (knee, day to day) opposite Jason Verrett. Richard Marshall is also a candidate for increased snaps.

CB Brandon Flowers (questionable, groin) missed practice on Friday after being added to the Chargers' injury report on Thursday.

It is never good news when a player is added to the injury report mid-week, and Flowers' absence from practice Friday suggests he is on the doubtful side of questionable. Rookie Jason Verrett would earn the start if Flowers cannot go.

Chargers agreed to terms with CB Brandon Flowers on a one-year contract.

The deal is worth "up to" $5 million and contains $3 million in total guarantees. Despite an anemic 2013 season as a misfit in Bob Sutton's press-man scheme, Flowers found a full bushel of suitors after the Chiefs released him 11 days ago. He lands in a spot where he can immediately rehab his value as a starting corner and then hit the open market again at age 29. Flowers put plenty of really good tape together from 2008-12, and will add borderline Pro Bowl shadow ability to a pass defense that ranked 29th in the league last year. With first-round corner Jason Verrett also added to incumbents Shareece Wright and Richard Marshall, this won't be quite the unit to pick on that it was last season.

According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, it "sounds like" free agent CB Brandon Flowers will sign with a team by midweek.

La Canfora confirms Flowers has "plenty of suitors." He's still a starting-caliber corner in an off-coverage scheme, and just turned 28 in February. It will be interesting to see whether Flowers pursues longer-term offers, or if he's willing to "bet" on himself for one year, and re-test the market in 2015.

Free agent CB Brandon Flowers left his Chargers visit without a contract.

It could be a matter of the Bolts simply waiting for Flowers' price to come down. Flowers hasn't scheduled any other visits, but has been connected to the Steelers, Patriots and Lions. He shouldn't remain out of work long.
