The San Diego Chargers have agreed to terms with former Kansas City Chiefs CB Brandon Flowers. Flowers visited the team last week and made his decision to join the squad today.

He is an instant upgrade to the secondary. He will compete for the starting job with youngsters, Jason Verrett and Steve Williams, on the roster. Richard Marshall also will be competing for the starting job with the team.

Flowers has agreed to a one-year deal with the team, per Mike Garafolo.

The secondary added more talent to the depth chart. There are a couple of youngsters in the secondary that are still unproven, so Flowers adds a stable veteran to the secondary. He fits the defensive scheme well and will compete. He can play in the nickel or start on the outside. He is another playmaker to add to a defense that was lacking that talent last season. The defense has some nice potential to work with this season. Will John Pagano make the most of it?

What move will the Chargers make in order to make room for Flowers?
