Report: Brandon Flowers won't visit with Steelers

Peter Aiken

Flowers said he plans to visit at least one other team before signing, but that other team won't be the Steelers, according to ESPN's Scott Brown.

Wherever Brandon Flowers is going, it isn't Pittsburgh, reports ESPN's Scott Brown.

The free agent cornerback left San Diego without a contract, but won't be making his way east to visit with the Steelers. A source told BTSC Wednesday the Steelers were trying to get Flowers to visit today, and confirmed the team was interested.

A report from the San Diego Union Tribune Thursday said Flowers would visit with "at least one other team" after the Chargers, suggesting he received an offer from the Chargers. Steel City Insider publisher Jim Wexell tweeted Thursday a source told him the Steelers were interested, but didn't think it was likely he'd leave San Diego.

Flowers has 17 interceptions in six NFL seasons. His production dropped off in 2013, the first year under Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. He projects better as a zone defender, and can play inside or out in that style defense. Reid's Chiefs had cornerbacks playing man on the outside, and Flowers reportedly wasn't a good fit.

Flowers' success came in a zone coverage 3-4 defense, similar to what the Steelers employ in their base package.
