Report: 10 Teams Including The Ravens, Vikings, Falcons & Lions Have Contacted Brandon Flowers


Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that 10 NFL teams have already contacted free agent CB Brandon Flowers since he was surprisingly released on Friday of last week.

According to Wilson, the Falcons, Lions, Ravens and Vikings are among the interested teams.

Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500 reported Sunday morning that the Vikings had interest in Flowers, so this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise.

Meanwhile, Jamison Hensley of mentioned over the weekend that the Ravens could be a “dark horse” to get involved in the bidding for Flowers as they could use a solid No. 3 cornerback option.

Detroit just parted ways with veteran CB Chris Houston, so you could easily make the case that they are in need of another cornerback, and Flowers could end up being the defensive back on their roster if they are able to get him under contract.

Atlanta was among the first teams mentioned as a possible suitor following Flowers’ release. Reports also mentioned that the Falcons have been monitoring Flowers’ situation in Kansas City since rumors began to circulate that he could be on his way out.

Other teams connected to Flowers include: the 49ers, Browns, Steelers, Texans and Titans.

Flowers, 28, is coming off of a down season, but Trotter mentions that he expressed a desire to leave Kansas City last season after he was forced to play in the slot. He has already put together a number of quality seasons in the NFL and should have plenty to offer a new team in the coming years.

Last season, Flowers appeared in 13 games and totaled 68 tackles, one sack, an interceptions and seven pass defenses for the Chiefs.

We have Flowers listed as the No. 1 player in our recently updated Top 50 – Best Available Free Agents list.
