Yesterday’s roundup of Brandon Flowers rumors primarily consisted of sources downplaying teams’ interest in the veteran cornerback, though several clubs still appear to be in the running. The Lions, at least, are said to be “seriously considering” making a run at the former Chief. Here are Tuesday’s updates on Flowers, with any new reports added to the top of the page throughout the afternoon and evening:
- Although the Falcons, who employ former Chiefs GM Scott Pioli, were quickly identified as one of the favorites to land Flowers when he became available, an organizational source tells D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Atlanta doesn’t presently have interest in the corner.
- Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities hears that the Vikings are still in the hunt for Flowers, though he thinks it will be a “tough battle to win,” with several other clubs also involved (Twitter link).
- We heard yesterday that the Redskins don’t have interest in Flowers, and ESPN.com’s John Keim (Twitter link) confirms that Washington wasn’t even one of the 10 clubs that initially inquired on the free agent.
