Report: Chargers CB Brandon Flowers expected back with Chargers

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers: I would love to stay in San Diego
|(3/5/15) Chargers cornerback Brandon Flowers said Thursday during an interview with NFL Network that he would like to re-sign with San Diego, per ESPN.
“We’re in negotiations right now, and hopefully we can get something done,” Flowers said. “But free agency is right around the corner. We’ll see how that all plays out. Business is business, but I would love to stay in San Diego.
"To me it’s very enjoyable because if I stay in San Diego, it’s a place I loved stepping in from Day 1. It’s a nice place to live, and with a quarterback like Philip Rivers, you always have a chance. And if I’m not able to go back, I’m going to the free agency market.”
Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said the two sides are talking.
“We’ve been in communication with his agent and with Brandon,” Telesco told XTRA 1360 Fox Sports radio last week. “And we’ll see where it goes with them.”
The 29-year-old Flowers had 52 tackles and led the team with three interceptions in 2014 -- his only season with San Diego after playing the previous six seasons with the Chiefs.
Report: Dolphins eyeing CBs Brandon Flowers, Kareem Jackson
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/1/15) Looking to upgrade at cornerback, the Dolphins are interested in bringing on Brandon Flowers or Kareem Jackson during free agency, according to a report from the Miami Herald.
The Dolphins don't appear sold on cornerback Cortland Finnegan for future seasons with the organization discussing alternative options.
In 2014, Flowers totaled 52 tackles and three interceptions after signing a one-year deal with the Chargers. Jackson recorded 57 tackles and three interceptions in his fifth season for the Texans.
Telesco: Chargers have no plans to use franchise tag
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/20/15) Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said Thursday that the team will not use the franchise tag this offseason, U-T San Diego reports.
Were the team to use the tag, cornerback Brandon Flowers stands out as the most likely player to receive the designation. He graded as the 15th best cornerback out of 108 players, per Pro Football Focus, and the Chargers will likely prioritze working out a deal to bring him back in 2015.
|Brandon Flowers is a low-end defensive back in IDP leagues, and he's only worth a late-round pick in deep formats on Draft Day. Flowers does have 17 interceptions and three defensive touchdowns in six seasons, but he set a career-high in tackles in 2013 with just 68. Unless he's creating a significant amount of turnovers then his upside is limited. We would use Flowers as more of a bye-week replacement in IDP leagues this season.
