Is Brandon Flowers a possible fit in Tennessee?

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Does the veteran corner offer some value for the Tennessee Titans?

Earlier this week Brandon Flowers was cut from the Kansas City Chiefs. As the top free agent cornerback (likely the top free agent at any position) on the open market at this point, the Titans have reportedly kicked the tires on the idea of signing him.



Now, the argument could be made that the Titans have plenty of young talent in the defensive secondary. Blidi Wreh-Wilson is big, fast, and now has the coaching that he needs to be very good. Coty Sensabaugh has done nothing but exceed expectations since he was drafted by the Titans. Marqueston Huff, Tommie Campbell, Damion Stafford, and Khalid Wooten all have the talent to play sparingly as role players and provide depth in a pinch.

However, the Titans have already expressed interest in at least one other veteran corner post-draft:


Even if the Titans bring in Flowers, they don't have to commit to him becoming the starter. Flowers can be the backup or the slot cornerback (something he has done well in the past) if they feel comfortable with the preformance and upside of one of the aforementioned DBs.

Another underrated aspect of what the Titans have done this offseason is bring players in with a winning culture. Michael Oher, Dexter McCluster, Al Woods, Shaun Phillips, and Wesley Woodyard all come from franchises that have been in playoff or Super Bowl contention within the last two years. Flowers fits into that mold nicely and would compete with the current cornerbacks, and there is one thing Whisenhunt has preached this offseason: competition.
