Kansas City Chiefs fans that were upset at the prospect of not seeing former Pro Bowl cornerback Brandon Flowers play at Arrowhead in the future can relax. Flowers signed a one-year deal with the San Diego Chargers on Tuesday, assuring at least one visit to Arrowhead in 2014 barring an injury.
Flowers was let go by the Chiefs on June 13th after unsuccessfully trying to trade the 28-year old corner before the NFL Draft. Flowers was due $5.2 million this year from the Chiefs, but the team decided to cut him and take the salary cap savings over the next two seasons.
Flowers reportedly flirted with several NFL teams before agreeing to the contract with San Diego. ESPN reports that the contract with the Chargers will pay Flowers a guaranteed salary of $1.5 million and he received another $1.5 million to sign.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media tweeted that the contract could eventually be worth $5 million if Flowers reaches all his incentives.
The deal is a great one for Flowers in that he can stay in the division he knows so well for one season and prove that his 2013 performance with Kansas City was an aberration. Ironically, Flowers made the Pro Bowl despite his numbers slipping badly across the board. He doesn’t turn 29 until next February, so if he proves himself, he could be in line for a huge payday in free agency in 2015.
