Report: Brandon Flowers met with 49ers on Friday

The Chargers weren’t the only California-based club to show interest in cornerback Brandon Flowers.

According to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports, Flowers met with the 49ers on Friday.

Ultimately, the 28-year-old Flowers reached a one-year deal with San Diego, where he figures to be a vital part of the Chargers’ secondary. But the Niners’ interest in the 2013 Pro Bowler is notable. The 49ers are perhaps as thin at cornerback as they are at any position, and their visit with Flowers may suggest they are open to adding to their defensive backfield.

Tramaine Brock, Chris Culliver, Chris Cook and Perrish Cox are among the Niners’ veteran options at cornerback, with rookie safety Jimmie Ward expected to have a role covering the slot.

    49ers or Chargers? Playoffs or 6-10? All about the money then.

    Maybe Harbaugh remembered that that he wants players that don’t abuse women and is looking to replace Cox and Cook. Their pasts don’t align with his previous statements.

    Just think Flowers realized he had more to offer the Bolts, coming from a divisional team. It’s a win/win situation for the Bolts and Flowers. He has a chance to prove himself after recovering from injuries, and help himself a lot going into free agency the following year, plus he’s only 28. The Bolts get a knowledgeable veteran who can help both physically and with bringing along rookies. As long as the contract is reasonable this could be anything from a decent to very good signing.

    6-10, ha, ha, ha, ha!!!!! The Bolts had some serious key position injuries last year, and were still in position to win some crucial games that cost them the playoffs. The AFC west will once again prove to be one of the tougher divisions. If Rivers plays anywhere near as well this year, they will be dangerous against any team, anywhere.

    Baalke will scavenge the waiver wire after final cut down day late August and find a pro bowler for the league minimum.

    Chargers > 49ers. The Bolts will prove it in December.

    The Chargers are better than SF LOL Classic. 3rd place team in the NFC West alone if they played there.

    Baalke: We don’t have a lot of money, but we do have a lot of dysfunction and a nutjob for a HC.

    Flowers (hastily signing contract with SD): Wow, you’ve given me a lot to consider…I’ll call you.

    Chargers backed into the playoffs and won a game in Cincy. Kuddos, They’re far from AFC title game though. They may have a tough time finishing ahead of the Raiders.
