The suitors for cornerback Brandon Flowers are starting to make themselves known.
Shortly after Flowers was released by the Chiefs last Friday, there was word that the Falcons were monitoring Flowers’ situation in Kansas City before he was released and that they are expected to be players for his services if the price is right. It looks like they’ll have some company in that pursuit from the Vikings.
Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN.com reports that the Vikings have interest in the veteran cornerback and that they have already reached out to express that interest to Flowers.
While it’s not surprising that the Vikings would be interested in upgrading their secondary, Flowers may not be a great fit if the team plans on playing a lot of press coverage on the outside. He struggled in that scheme with the Chiefs last season, which led to a lot of time in the slot. Captain Munnerlyn is expected to fill that role for the Vikings, which may lead Flowers to another landing spot.
