San Diego, CA- The Kansas City Chiefs have released Pro Bowl Cornerback Brandon Flowers.
On his Twitter account Brandon Flowers released the following statement:
Just want to say thanks to the Hunt family for the 6years in Kansas City thanks to the fans and my teammates for some great years.

According to Joel Wagler of KC Kingdom, Brandon Flowers was not a great fit in new defensive coordinator Bob Sutton’s scheme, which relies a great deal on press-man coverage, and Flowers struggled both outside and inside on the way to posting a Pro Football Focus grade of minus-5.9, which was his worst since 2008. The release of Brandon Flowers saves the Chiefs $7 million and helps the Chiefs who are trying to free up money to sign Justin Houston or Alex Smith to long-term deals.
Flowers was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round with the 35th overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. Flowers last season made his first career Pro Bowl and had 63 tackles, one sack and one interception. In his career with Kansas City Chiefs, Brandon Flowers had 374 tackles and 17 interceptions in his 6 seasons with the Chiefs.
All San Diego Charger fans have to be thinking this could be a HUGE break for the Bolts. The San Diego Chargers need to inquire immediately about the details of his departure and determine if he’s sign-able (by Tom Telesco and Mike McCoy standards) and if so, make him an offer – regardless of the signing of Brandon Ghee.
