Cornerback Brandon Flowers has been one of the most consistent and dominant players on the Kansas City Chiefs defense over the last several years. However, a slow 2013 season has everyone questioning how much longer the Chiefs will keep the pricey defensive back. Flowers counts as $10.5 million in the 2014 salary cap. A lot of cash for someone who did not play as a shutdown corner this season.
The 5-foot-9, 187-pound Flowers turns just 28 next month, so trade interest may still be good. After all, the Chiefs are starting to fare towards taller defensive backs. Flowers was chosen among the selected to play in the 2014 Pro Bowl game, but that seems more of an honorable mention for what he has done in the previous seasons.
Some of Flowers’ worst games this season were when the team played the Dallas Cowboys early in the season and against the San Diego Chargers half way through. Flowers’ grade dropped heavily compared to 2014 according to ProFootballFocus.com.
So what will be Flowers’ fate with the Chiefs? Will they part ways with the All-Pro?
