Atlanta Falcons, Houston Texans Among Landing Spots For Brandon Flowers


In an effort to create “Kansas City South,” reports are surfacing the Atlanta Falcons are among the teams showing heavy interest in newly released cornerback Brandon Flowers.

Atlanta appears to be doing everything to pick up former Chiefs. Jon Asamoah, Tyson Jackson, and Javier Arenas have each signed with the Falcons this offseason, and Scott Poili was hired to be an assistant general manager shortly before those player signings. If the Falcons sign Flowers then Oklahoma Joe’s may want to consider opening up a restaurant in Atlanta.

NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal writes the other leading contender for Flowers’ services are the Houston Texans. Romeo Crennel is the new defensive coordinator there, and the team struggled mightily in the secondary a season ago. Flowers was excellent in Crennel’s cover-two scheme and would be an excellent fit for what the Texans so desperately need.

Rosenthal also lists the Carolina Panthers, Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders, and New York Jets as possibilities for Flowers. One would think the Denver Broncos are probably out of the question after this rant.

    If Flowers goes to Houston to play under RAC he’s going to explode this next season. Crennel’s system fits BFlows abilities like a glove.

    I hate speculation. Why post it as if its news?

      Dear, this time of the year, all we have is speculation.

    Considering all the teams that might be interested in Flowers, too bad a trade couldn’t be worked out w/ one of them. I would assume because no one wanted to take his large contract.

    I don’t now how this waiver wire thing works. So if Texans grab him, what if he doesn’t want to sign for what Texas is offering, does Flowers then have the option of going to the next team on the list? or is it take the offer or retire?

      He will not pass through waivers. Any player with four years accrued playing time does not have to go through waivers.

      No trade because most knew more than us that the probability of being cut was high ; why loosing picks when you can get him through a cut ?

    I thought yesterday you were doing a sequel to “Ferris Buehler’s Day Off”.

    People are playing connect the dots and trying to speculate where Flowers mind land, but honestly I think that the majority of the teams in the NFL are going to be interested. There’s going to be a lot of potential landing spots for Flowers. Flowers is a pro bowl player at a position that teams covet dearly now that the NFL is so pass happy, plus he’s decently young and scheme versatile. I expect that most of the teams with the cap space, will at least give his agent a call.
