Bio

The Chargers added a proven defender to their secondary in June when they landed former Kansas City Chiefs Pro Bowl cornerback Brandon Flowers.

In San Diego, Flowers will be reunited with one of his closest friends, wide receiver Eddie Royal. The two spent their entire careers together at Virginia Tech and were both drafted in the second round in 2008. Flowers was taken by the Chiefs with the  35th overall selection after leaving school a year early, while Royal was taken by the Denver Broncos with the 42nd pick. In six seasons with the Chiefs, Flowers played in 88 games and started 87. He racked up 421 tackles, 17 interceptions, three interception returns for touchdowns and 97 passes defensed. He also forced four fumbles, recovered five and was responsible for two quarterback sacks. In last season’s AFC Wild Card Playoffs, Flowers hauled in an interception against Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck.

Flowers didn’t wait long to make an impression in the NFL. Just seven games into his rookie season, Flowers intercepted the first two passes of his career against the New York Jets off future Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre. Flowers returned one of the picks 91 yards for his first NFL touchdown. He also became one of just four rookies in the NFL in 2008 to record multiple interceptions in a game.

Flowers earned  his first-career Pro Bowl appointment in 2013 after helping the Chiefs to a mark of 11-5 and their first playoff appearance since 2010. He enjoyed his top statistical season with the Chiefs in 2009 when he led the squad with five interceptions and 28 passes defensed, both career highs.

A native of Delray Beach, Florida, Flowers enjoys spending time with his large extended family back in the sunshine state. His father, Willie, and mother, Patricia, have both been tremendous influences in his life. Though his parents divorced when Brandon was just a baby, both have been a steady influence in his life. His father, a former free safety at Florida State, can count on one hand the number of Flowers’ games that he’s missed since he was just seven years old. It includes travel up the eastern seaboard when Flowers played at Virginia Tech and even further when he was drafted by Kansas City to play for the Chiefs. Brandon’s mother raised he and his sister, Brittany, often working two jobs to provide for her children. Brittany graduated from Florida State in only three years with a degree in communications and has worked for Fox Sports.

Another role model for Flowers is former NFL cornerback Patrick Surtain. In high school, one of his cousins dated and later married Surtain’s brother. At the time, Surtain played for the Dolphins and Flowers was fortunate enough to spend quite a bit of time with Surtain. Years later, it proved to be quite a coincidence when Flowers was drafted by the Chiefs and ended up starting opposite Surtain.

Beyond football and spending time with family, Flowers is a movie buff who loves comedies and he’s an avid gym rat who plays basketball as often as he can.
