Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers agreed to terms last week on a new five-year contract, and after Sunday’s loss in Detroit, he said it was a relief to know that he’ll remain in Kansas City for at least half a decade.
“It feels good just knowing I’m secure with the Chiefs,” said Flowers, a fourth-year cornerback. “When you come into that final year of your contract, you don’t know where you’ll end up at, where; are the Chiefs going to keep you or will you end up in a whole other city? I want to spend my career here. We made it happen.”
Flowers, who was involved in a scuffle in the first quarter with Detroit’s Titus Young, confirmed that his contract is worth a maximum of $50 million over the next five seasons. (22 Million Guaranteed) Link

The Chiefs two Brandons have different skill sets and seem to complement each other. A very nice tandem, I hope the Chiefs sew together for many more years to come.
