Paylor admits that there are several obstacles standing in the way of a Flowers trade such as his salary, cap figure and the lack of teams with enough cap space to make this deal possible.
- Dan Pompei of the Bleacher Report first reported that the Chiefs are “believed” to be willing to trade Flowers for draft picks.
The idea of the Chiefs making trades to acquire draft picks has been floating around for some time now. However, many assumed that they would try to trade their first-round pick and move back from there, but it appears as though they could look to move one of their best defensive players, depending on the level of interest.
Given that we’re already into day three of the 2014 draft, it would probably make more sense for the Chiefs to try and acquire some 2015 selections, assuming they are even willing to field offers for their Pro Bowl cornerback.
Flowers, 28, was a 2013 Pro Bowl selection and will be entering the four year of his six-year, $49.35 million contract that includes $22 million guaranteed.
He has base salaries of $5.25 million, $6.25 million and $6.5 million coming his way over the remainder of the contract.
Last year, Flowers appeared in 13 games and totaled 68 tackles, one sack, an interceptions and seven pass defenses for the Chiefs.
