Brandon Flowers agrees to terms on a contract with the San Diego Chargers after being released by the Kansas City Chiefs.

The San Diego Chargers have agreed to terms with free agent cornerback Brandon Flowers after he was released by the Kansas City Chiefs.

The 28-year-old made the Pro Bowl for the first time last season and has been signed in order to help boost a San Diego pass defense that finished 29th in passing yards allowed per game last season.

Flowers has 17 interceptions, including three for touchdowns, and 91 pass break-ups in his six-year professional career and is now expected to challenge the likes of Richard Marshall and Shareece Wright.

San Diego now have a full 90-man roster and will have to release a player in order to make room for Flowers, while they will now have 11 cornerbacks on their books.
