Good CB. I know a lot of Chiefs fans who will be ticked off by this.

Word is Falcons are ready to pounce. BTW Chiefs, always a good idea to decrease the # of good CBs you have in a division where you play Manning and Rivers 4x.

Wouldn't surprise me if Jets grab him.

As what though? Surely he would want to start, and I don't think there is a place for him. I expect Graham/Robey to be very productive in the slot, and McKelvin/Gilimore have the outside locked down.

Based on the reports out of the Bills, AW is a lock at FS. SS is the open competition.

Cap space move - based on KC's website: Flowers’ cap number would have been $10.5 million this year, $11.5 million in 2015 and $9.75 million in 2016

With the Chiefs releasing Brandon Flowers, the Chiefs can try to extend Alex Smith and Justin Houston.

Just sharing the news.

I doubt the Bills will go after him.  I don't think it's a bad idea given all the injuries suffered last year, but it's unlikely.

Flowers is a very good player in the right system, but he's not scheme diverse. He was a bad fit in KC's new defense, as evidenced last year. Think Warren Sapp in the Raiders 3-4.

He'll catch on & be a good player again. I don't think he's a good fit for us-especially at his price tag, but Atlanta seems like a good fit.

It's tough to hate Bryan Cox since his teams never really had any success against the Bills.  He was like the heel in professional wrestling that is always antagonizing and talking trash but then gets his in the end to the satisfaction of all.  He played this role to perfection.

I watched Flowers play in High School. He was a man playing boys. Some team is going to get a very good player.

Except for when he signed with the Patriots and won a Super Bowl.
