Pompei admits that Flowers’ contract could be an inhibiting factor in regards to a trade as his salary would only fit with a few teams.
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.
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.
