San Diego, California - The San Diego Chargers have agreed to terms with former Kansas City Chiefs Pro Bowl cornerback Brandon Flowers, the team announced today.
The 5-9, 187-pounder from Virginia Tech recorded 421 tackles, 97 passes defensed and 17 interceptions in six seasons with the Chiefs, while playing in 88 games with 87 starts. He made his first Pro Bowl in 2013 after notching 68 tackles, seven passes defensed and one pick, while also grabbing an interception in the Chiefs’ Wild Card Playoff game against Indianapolis.
The former second-round pick of the Chiefs tied for the team lead with 10 passes defensed, while adding one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries his rookie season. He was named to Pro Football Weekly’s All-Rookie Team and was one of four rookies in the NFL to record two or more interceptions in a single game.
A native of Delray Beach, Florida, the 28-year-old Flowers prepped at Atlantic High School, where he led the team to a Class 5A regional title and received first-team all-area and all-conference honors as a senior. As a collegian, he was named first-team All-America by the American Football Coaches Association, first-team All-ACC and third-team All-America by the Associated Press before the Chiefs selected him with the 35th overall selection in the 2008 NFL Draft.
