CB Brandon Flowers’ 1-year deal with the #Chargers is worth up to $5M, I’m told. Can prove himself in 2014, cash in again at 29

One year prove it deal for Flowers. He'll help mentor the youngins in Verrett and Williams, his future replacements if he doesn't stay past this year. I wonder how much and if it means they were able to restructure Clary's contract.

I like this for them. Gives them the option to not force Verrett into playing time if he's not ready.

Yes. Especially considering how awful how pass rush was last year.

Love it.

John Pagano has no excuse for this defense not to at least be middle of the pack. The talent on paper is similar to the unit Riverboat Ron had in 2010 and that defense was top 10.

Not necessarily zone, but LOTS of off coverage.

Yeah, scheme shouldn't be an issue for Flowers. He is actually a good fit for us, the Chargers problem the last few years with CBs have been having strictly press corners(Cox, Cro, Cason etc.) forced to play in a system that has a lot of off-coverage.

If his problem last year in KC was more scheme then physical decline then he should bounce back.

Apparently he picked SD over San Francisco. That's awesome!

We didn't want him anyways Wink.

Kidding of course, he would have been a good fit for us as well.
