The Kansas City Chiefs have been slowly but surely extending the contracts of a few key players. Last year, it was LB Derrick Johnson and RB Jamaal Charles. During training camp, it was LB Tamba Hali.
And today it's CB Brandon Flowers.
According to the KC Star's Adam Teicher, Flowers has agreed to a long-term contract extension with the team. No word on how long the deal is or how much money is involved.
Flowers was entering the final year of his four-year rookie deal he signed with the Chiefs in 2008.
This is a move we expected them to make. Flowers is clearly a rising corner and one of the most important pieces of the Chiefs defense. He's exactly the type of guy you want to lock up.
Who's next? A couple of names to keep an eye on are WR Dwayne Bowe and CB Brandon Carr, who both have contracts expiring at the end of the 2011 season.
