Could the Saints Sign Brandon Flowers?

New, comments

It's doubtful that the Saints are one of ten teams reaching out to former Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers.

Recently released cornerback Brandon Flowers is still looking for a new home after being let go by the Kansas City Chiefs last Friday.

Not surprisingly, he's drawing a lot of interest from quite a few teams. Aaron Wilson reported that ten NFL teams have shown interest in Flowers. The Saints could very well be one of those ten teams.

Flowers is a legitimate talent worth considering. He earned a Pro Bowl nod last season. His +35.5 PFF grade makes him the fifth best coverage corner over the past five years. More than half of Chiefs fans aren't happy with decision. But Kansas City needed to create some cap space and they're trying to get bigger at the cornerback position.

So are the Saints taking a look at Flowers? I doubt it. The reasons Flowers was cut loose from the Chiefs are the same reasons he wouldn't be a great fit in New Orleans. The Saints hardly have the cap space to afford him and he doesn't really fit in Rob Ryan's system.

But hey, ya never know. Would you like to see the Saints take a run at Flowers?
