Cornerback Brandon Flowers left his visit with the Chargers without a contract for the 2014 season and indicated that he would visit with at least one more team before deciding where to continue his career after getting released by the Chiefs.
It doesn’t look like that visit will be with the Steelers. Scott Brown of ESPN.com reports that there are no plans for the Steelers to host Flowers despite reports of interest in bringing the veteran corner on board. The Steelers haven’t commented specifically on Flowers, but coach Mike Tomlin said the team isn’t closing any doors.
“I’m not opposed to anything that will increase our chances of winning. We’re open to all possibilities,” Tomlin said.
Cortez Allen and Ike Taylor are projected to be the starting corners in Pittsburgh this season with William Gay, Brice McCain, fifth-round pick Shaquille Richardson and others in the mix behind them. The Lions, Ravens, Falcons and Vikings have all been mentioned as other potential landing spots for Flowers since he parted ways with the Chiefs, although subsequent reports have pulled the Falcons and Vikings out of the hunt.
