DT's contract has nothing to do with picking up Flowers. And yes it is a wise position unless you don't remember the super bowl when we had no the but backups playing in the secondary. He would probably be worth around what Cromartie got with the Cards. 1 year 3.2 million.

They could use a vet RB for sure.

MLB, meh.

CB for the vet minimum, they dont need to pay 6 mil for a #3 CB maybe.

I love Chris Harris.

Doubt Denver looks to sign him. If it was a cheap, 1 year deal, great. But he doesn't likely start here.

"At cornerback the Chiefs are left with only veteran Sean Smith as a proven commodity, and though Smith is an adequate starter, he's not a No. 1. Their other starter in the offseason has been Marcus Cooper, a seventh-round draft pick last year by the San Francisco 49ers. The Chiefs grabbed him off waivers at the start of last season and he played well for a time as their third cornerback.

By season's end, his play had deteriorated to the point the Chiefs felt compelled to move him to the bench.

The other cornerbacks currently contending for playing time are Ron Parker, a journeyman who has been beaten several times in offseason practice, Chris Owens, a 5-9 nickel back, and rookie Phillip Gaines, a third-round draft pick who so far has shown little."

Looking forward to seeing a lot more of Marcus Cooper. Manning was able to target Cooper all day last year.

So why did they release Flowers?

Did he kill someone?

Edit: Looks like he isn't good for their "scheme" -- way to go KC!

Honestly, a popular growing mantra among them is "Once Manning retires..."

Money, plain and simple especially with Alex/Houston/Berry due big deals soon, and eventually Poe.

Didnt fit their scheme, i woulda probably done it early in the offseason before FA began so they had a little more cap to work with.

Former Chiefs GM Scott Pioli had the same reaction now as when he was with the Chiefs:

Pioli: "Kansas City, tell me how my d*** tastes."

It's a bad sign when you cut one of your better players because he doesn't fit your scheme vs making your scheme fit your players.

This is the type of move McD would have made.

On the bright side, KC can now afford to sign Alex Smith to a long term deal, so they've got that goin for them.

The Broncos should sign him so they can make it 33-8 next time instead of 43-8.

Oh and don't forget this from two days ago:

Quote:
Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith was arrested on Monday morning in Kansas City and cited for operating with a vehicle with a BAC of .08 or more, according to KCTV5.com. Smith was arrested after he crashed into a light post at an intersection after trying to make a left turn. The crash broke the light post.

According to the police report obtained by KCTV, the Chiefs corner declined medical attention. He also mumbled statements that police couldn't understand after the crash, which occurred around 12:30 a.m.

Smith was eventually taken into custody and charged with suspicion of DUI, careless driving and driving without proof of insurance, according to the Kansas City Star.
