Team to watch for Brandon Flowers: The #Falcons. They have been monitoring the situation & preparing in case Flowers was cut. Today he was

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.
