An article I wrote while I was an intern for Pro Player Insiders on Brandon Flowers, former San Diego Charger cornerback in 2014.
Brandon Flowers is a newly acquired asset the San Diego Chargers are looking to show off this upcoming season. The newly acquired Defensive Back is coming off of a season where he made the Pro-Bowl and is quickly gaining speed. After being released by the Kansas City Chiefs this past off-season, Flowers has made it his mission to get revenge. Flowers stated that being able to play the Chiefs twice in a season played a role in his signing with the Chargers. “That’ll definitely played in the decision,” Flowers stated. He also went on to say that it will be a fun experience to play against an old team as he has never been able to do so before. “I respect the Chief’s organization but it will also be fun to see the guys again,” said Flowers.
After a successful pre-season, Brandon Flowers is going into his 7th season as a NFL cornerback. With a career 17 interceptions and a seasoned veteran, Flowers was asked how he will take on the role of mentoring some of the younger talent on the team, “In my head I am still in my 3rd year, I plan on talking to the younger guys about their body and staying focused on the task at hand.” Brandon also went on to say that when he first arrived in Kansas City, his mentor was Patrick Surtain, an 11 year veteran. Brandon’s competitive spirit and drive is something that will help the Chargers secondary this season. When asked about his favorite part of training camp he replied, “The competition, 7 on 7 and the everyday grind.” Brandon is slated to become a game changer on this team as it aspires to make the playoffs for the second straight year. When asked about the expectation from the Chargers and its fans, he replied, “I’m a high energy guy and plan on making plays on the field.”
