Chiefs CB Brandon Flowers "Coaching Up" Tennessee S Eric Berry

A few weeks ago came the news that Chiefs CB Brandon Flowers has been working out with Tennessee S Eric Berry down in Florida. Apparently, "at least once or twice a week" Flowers headed down to Berry's workout facility and helped him prepare for the Combine and his pro day.

"I think my performance at the Combine, what I did in my position drills, that showed what he did for me," Berry told Nick Wright of 610 Sports on Friday. "At least once or twice a week, he came to the training facility and helped me out on my drills. He got me prepared for the drills."

Romeo Crennel will be Flowers' third defensive coordinator in as many years so it's impressive that he's been able to perform consistently in two separate schemes.

"You could tell he has a good knowledge of the game the way he was coaching me up," Berry said. "I think I could understand it very well. You could tell he knows a lot coming from the Kansas City Chiefs. I think that has a lot to say about that organization."

Not only is Flowers "coaching up" Berry, he's also telling him that Kansas City isn't a bad place to be.

"He said it was a great city," Berry explained. "The fans are amazing. They're just like college, very passionate about their team and their city. They come in every Sunday with pride backing up the Kansas City Chiefs."

Kudos to Brandon Flowers for repping Kansas City. Here's the audio of the Eric Berry interview.
