Good news, Chargers fans: Your team just acquired the best cornerback in the NFL. At least in his own mind.
Brandon Flowers, the veteran who was cut by the Chiefs and signed by the Chargers this month, has declared himself the single best player in football at his position.
“First off, let me must say, I am the best corner in football,” Flowers said on NFL Network, via the Kansas City Star.
The Chiefs obviously don’t think Flowers is even close to the best cornerback in football, or else they wouldn’t have cut him. But Flowers said that playing through injuries caused him to struggle last season, and he believes the Chiefs are going to regret their decision.
“I was very surprised when it happened,” Flowers said. “I knew I hit the cap pretty hard, but I thought if I was going to get traded or released it was going to be in February or March sometime. The timing that they did it, it kind of hit me. That’s why I stayed in the division. I wanted to let the Chiefs know that’s why they hit me. I want to let them know how I felt about it.”
Now the Chiefs will have to face the best corner in football twice a year.
