Kansas City Chiefs willing to deal Brandon Flowers


Looking to replace talent that walked for free agency after a return to the playoffs following one of the more successful regular seasons in recent memory the Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly willing to deal one of their Pro Bowlers in order to get more picks in the 2014 NFL Draft.

According to Dan Pompei of Bleacher Report, the Kansas City Chiefs would be willing to part with 2013 Pro Bowl corner Brandon Flowers for some draft picks.

From Bleacher Report:

The Chiefs are believed to be willing to deal Brandon Flowers in an attempt to acquire extra draft selections.

Flowers is an intriguing potential trade target as he is a very talented corner who also struggled in the Chiefs system last year, which makes sense why the Chiefs are considering him as a potential player to dangle to the rest of the NFL general managers in hopes of grabbing extra draft pick.

Whatever pick the Chiefs could potentially get for Flowers likely wouldn’t be in the first two rounds as Kansas City have given him a contract that would be a decent amount of money to take onto the salary cap on draft day. Flowers has three years left on a six-year, $49.35 million deal that presents a potential roadblock between teams and the Chiefs when it comes to negotiations. Still it is interesting to hear reports of the Chiefs trying to add draft picks in exchange for proven talent as they attempt to find some consistency after breaking through into the playoffs in their first season under new head coach Andy Reid.

    Good luck to the chefs trying to cook that up!!

    I personally don’t see them getting anything that would be an improvement over Flowers so all they would be doing is shedding the cap.

  • Matt Dickson

    Flowers was drafted by Herm Edwards for a Tampa2 defense. Our current Man defense is a terrible fit for his skill set. Plus I suspect he was playing through some nagging injuries last year.

    Here’s the deal, he’s a very talented, scrappy CB still in his prime. He just needs to be in the right system.

    Thing that makes this tough for KC is the contract. They can thanks Pioli for that..

    I would say no, but that’s a knee jerk reaction. From some of the responses, the reason he struggled is he’s not built to play man. What I would like to know is if he is talented enough to learn to play man and be as successful as he was in the Tampa 2; what would we gain from creating ANOTHER hole that needed to be filled with a quality player, and then picking up an unknown entity to fill that need?

    Never trade in the same division.. McNabb was over the hill..

  • Ben Nielsen

    Wouldn’t be surprised if Houston spent a third rounder to get him. Romeo/Tampa Two reunion.

    I have to agree with you there, but the fact he is struggling and making a lot of money doesn’t help out the Chiefs. Flowers could likely start in a lot of places and succeed running Tampa2 and more zone coverage schemes.
