Former Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers has signed a one-year deal with the San Diego Chargers, according to reports.
Chargers will sign CB Brandon Flowers, per source.

So Flowers will stay in the division for at least one more season and help out the Chargers struggling secondary. That’s exciting.
Even with the crappy year in 2013 where injuries and scheme slowed Flowers down significantly, Flowers still ranks in the top five of Pro Football Focus’ coverage grade since 2009. He was one of the few secondary players to have a positive grade in the playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts and made his first Pro Bowl this past season. For one year, San Diego has a real nice piece to help develop their first round pick, cornerback Jason Verrett.
All in all, the deal makes sense for both sides, especially since Flowers will hit the open market next March at the age of 29 and with presumably more value than he would have had this past spring.
thank you KC…again #Chargers

You’re welcome, I guess.
