It has been reported by the Kansas City Chiefs that Brandon Flowers has signed a one-day deal with the team to participate in a ceremonial retirement. After announcing his retirement from the NFL in 2017, Flowers did not participate in a ceremonial retirement ceremony with Kansas City.
When the Kansas City Chiefs signed Flowers in 2008, he was a second-round draught pick out of Virginia Tech. 373 total tackles with 17 interceptions, including three for touchdowns, 90 passes defended, and four forced fumbles were made by him throughout that time.
A contract year for Flowers, in 2013, brought him to his sole Pro Bowl. San Diego signed Flowers in 2014 after he was released by Kansas City in the previous year. Chargers’ defensive lineman had 113 tackles, four interceptions, 19 pass deflections, and a score in three seasons with the club.
Floral joins Jamaal Charles in signing one-day contracts with the organization to end their careers.
It’s reasonable to say that Flowers is one of the most underappreciated cornerbacks to ever play for Kansas City. On the field, Flowers was a shutdown corner who was known for making crucial defensive plays for the Kansas City Chiefs. In general, his teams had little collective success, but his contributions were usually significant when they did.
Flowers racked up 65 tackles (58 solos), 2 forced fumbles, 23 pass breakups, and 5 interceptions despite missing the majority of the 2009 season because of a sore shoulder.
Following a 30th-place finish the year before, he helped lead the Chiefs to their first division title since 2003 with the 14th-ranked defense in yards per game in 2010. With 65 tackles, 14 pass deflections, and two interceptions, he had a career-high season.
With a five-year deal for $50 million and $22 million guaranteed, Flowers signed with the Kansas City Chiefs on September 16, 2011.
Flowers intercepted the ball twice in the Chiefs/Raiders game, one of which was recovered for a touchdown. Flowers has 59 tackles and four interceptions for the season. San Diego Chargers signed Flowers on June 24, 2014, to a one-year agreement. In making his decision, he was motivated by the prospect of facing the Kansas City Chiefs.
Against the Jacksonville Jaguars on September 28, 2014, Flowers intercepted Blake Bortles for the first time as a Charger. Flores picked off New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith on October 5, 2014, to register his second interception of the season. Flowers picked off St. Louis Rams quarterback Shaun Hill on November 23 in a game between the two NFC West rivals. After 14 games, Flowers had 52 tackles (48 solos), 3 interceptions, and 10 passes defended in his first season with the Chargers.
Flowers re-signed with the Chargers on March 8th, 2015, for a four-year, $36 million extension. To honor Ryan Mathews, he decided to change his phone number to 24. (His previous number was 26). As of the 12th of December, 2015, he had been placed on an injured reserve.
Prior to sustaining a concussion in Week 10 of 2016, Flowers played six games. Injured reserve status was granted to him on December 14th, 2016.
When the Chargers released Flowers on March 7, 2017, he become a free agent.
