Reports: Brandon Flowers to make as much as $5 million in 2014

Cornerback Brandon Flowers took a one-year deal with San Diego.

But how much can he make over the life of the contract?

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Flowers can earn as much as $5 million with the Chargers, who have made two big investments in the secondary this offseason. In addition to agreeing with Flowers, the Chargers selected cornerback Jason Verrett in Round One of the 2014 draft.

Field Yates of ESPN.com reports Flowers has a $1.5 million guaranteed salary and received $1.5 million to sign.

The one-year deal allows Flowers to hit free agency next offseason. He will be 29 in February, potentially still young enough to receive a lucrative multiyear deal if he plays well and stays healthy in 2014.

    I’m really glad they pulled this off… Can’t see how this is in any way a negative.

    Perfect contract for both sides.

    Go Chargers!!

    Yeah since hes playing for a bigger deal next season we should see him be very productive this year. Go Chargers!

    That is a great deal for the chargers! Also goes to show you that he had little to non interest from other teams.

    The Chargers had about 2.5 million in cap space. That could be a negative. But they need depth at the position, so it’s good move for them.

    They need all the CB help playing in that divison.

    so who did they cut…Chargers only had 2.4 in cap space…still I guess the chargers were the highest bidder for his services. To think this guy had a 5 year 50 million dollar contract….talking about going from cashews to peanuts….choo choo…Super bowl express derailed again

    There was something wrong with Flowers last season that (along with his high cap number) led to his release.

    Win win on both sides!

    I’m glad the Leos didn’t shell out that much for a 5′ 8″ Cornerback. Enjoy!

    Well, you can’t say he went for the money.

    NY NEW YORK GIANT WE NEEDED A #1 CORNER TO PAIR UP WITH DOMINQUE RODGERS CROMARTIE

    @LRiddickESPN: CB’s that can’t challenge WR’s @ LOS in today’s game and deal with the big boys, AND are speed deficient? Your value is going down. Fact.

    Revamped defense is all we needed. This is gonna be our year! #makearunb4riversisdone

    From one loser team to another, choo choo!

    Smells like roses or is it pushing up daisies?

    B Flowers got Burned multiple times the last 2 years with my Chiefs. I still like him and am a fan, wish he had gone somewhere outside the division.

    The game is changing, and we decided to change with it by prefering tall, long fast corners.

    The Chargers apparently are sticking with the failed short, slow corners method. This signing, combined with drafting a midget CB, is a sign of the same old Chargers. Winning nothing.
