A well-above average CB in the NFL, Brandon Flowers was an absolute steal for the Chargers when he hit free agency last summer.
The San Diego Chargers have reached a new deal with starting CB Brandon Flowers on a four-year contract before he was scheduled to hit free agency.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Chargers have agreed to give Flowers a new four-year deal rather than risk him walking out the door in free agency when it opens on Tuesday.
Chargers and CB Brandon Flowers reached agreement on a 4-year deal, per league sources. Deal to be signed this week.

A 2nd round pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008, Flowers became a Day 1 starter and recorded 101 starts, missing only eight games in his six seasons with the team. He established himself as a dangerous player to throw to, recording three INT-TDs in his first four seasons to go along with his 13 INTs and four fumble recoveries.
Despite finally making the Pro Bowl for the Chiefs in 2013, Flowers was released before the start of the 2014 season and quickly signed with the Chargers – the Chiefs’ division rivals – on a one-year deal. In 14 games played Flowers recorded 3 INTs and the team’s starting CB.
