The Chiefs are reportedly willing to listen on offers for Pro Bowl cornerback Brandon Flowers.
According to Dan Pompei of Bleacher Report, the Chiefs are “believed to be willing to deal” Flowers for draft considerations.
The 28-year-old Flowers made 13 starts for Kansas City a season ago, notching 68 tackles, intercepting one pass and garnering his first-ever Pro Bowl berth.
According to NFLPA data, Flowers is due $5.25 million in 2014, $6.25 million in 2015 and $6.5 million in 2016.
The Chiefs have six picks in this week’s draft. They lack second- and seventh-round selections.
With the 2014 draft considered deep in talent, it will be interesting to see if the names of any other well-compensated veterans circulate in trade rumors. It is not uncommon for veteran-for-pick trades to occur later in drafts, with the Patriots’ 2007 acquisition of Randy Moss a famous example.
