He put together a very solid all-around season, and has made it very clear that he wants to re-sign with the Chargers this offseason.

Is San Diego’s Brandon Flowers the best shutdown corner in the NFL?

NFL cornerbacks always like to argue about which one of them is the best. Richard Sherman and Patrick Peterson have gotten into several Twitter feuds on the subject and everyone from Brandon Flowers to DeAngelo Hall has told the world they’re number one. But who is it really? What if I told you that as of this moment it’s not Sherman or Peterson? What if I told you that neither...

Flowers is a good defensive back, and will make some plays for San Diego this season. From the looks of things in Friday's preseason contest against Seattle he is definitely fitting in with the team already.Or at least with Phillip Rivers...

If this video doesn’t make you excited for the Chargers’ season, I don’t know what will

Keenan Allen looks FAST! And number 26? That’s newly signed, Brandon Flowers. While Allen made a highlight reel catch, the coverage from Flowers was awesome. Only a pinpoint throw and catch could have beaten him. His swat timing was off, but that is one hell of a matchup. Counting down the days until next Thursday. Impressive grab in the back of the end zone by @Keenan13Allen!...

While Richard Sherman, Darrelle Revis and Patrick Peterson are frequently talked about as being the top cornerbacks in the NFL, Chargers CB Brandon Flowers recently said he’s the best in the league. That is certainly up for debate, as Flowers is coming off a mediocre 2013 campaign, and he’s now joining a secondary that struggled immensely to defend the pass last year. So he...

What Brandon Flowers Means to the Chargers

It’s hard to imagine that a team could perform worse than the Chargers did when talking about the horrid play of their secondary last season. The team allowed 21.8 points per game and gave up an average of 366.5 yards whenever they stepped onto the field. Hardly numbers that would be expected of a playoff caliber team. Even more concerning is that of those 366.5 yards per game...
