The Chiefs have released CB Brandon Flowers.


Flowers had a $5.25M base salary for 2014 w/ a $3M prorated bonus, $2M roster bonus and $250K workout bonus ($10.5M cap #).

Tom Pelissero says it saves the Chiefs $9M off this year's cap

He's still a really really good player despite coming off a down year last year. He had some nagging injuries last year that slowed him a bit, and he is not an ideal fit for the press man scheme the Chiefs had moved to.

Honestly I really wanted him back and wanted him to transition to FS. He has excellent instincts and ball skills. He's an outstanding tackler, and a willing run support DB! He's a good leader in the secondary as well. His size can cause mismatches and turning and running with someone exposes him a little so you don't want him ideally matched against big speedsters.

I hope he goes to a contender.

I'd take him in a heartbeat.

I remember when he was one of the better up and coming CB's in the NFL.

Can he still play at a decent level? If he'd come for the right price I'd love him in Buffalo.

Any time the Chiefs lose a talented player it makes me happy.

Had to be done for salary cap issues. Still a good player, just always has minor injuries. Despite what you'll hear he is better in man than in zone.

Wow this kinda shocks me. Flowers is a damn good CB and still relatively young. He won't be on the market for long.

I would love to see what Mike Zimmer could get out of him.

Vikings have the cap room and really could use another perimeter CB. Perfect fit.

I could see that. He would be a nice add for Zimmer. He can get the most out of CB's
