    CB Flowers available (cut by KS)

    ATL is already reportedly interested.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Cornerback Brandon Flowers, a six-year starter, was released by the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday. Flowers played in his first Pro Bowl last season.

    Flowers had been absent from the Chiefs' offseason practices this year, indicating he was unhappy playing in Kansas City. The Chiefs shifted him to nickelback last season in obvious passing situations.

    Marcus Cooper, the third cornerback last season as a rookie, has replaced Flowers in the starting lineup during offseason practice.

    Flowers had been a solid player for the Chiefs until 2013, when he had perhaps his worst season despite making the Pro Bowl. New general manager John Dorsey favors bigger cornerbacks and the 5-foot-9 Flowers struggled in the Chiefs' new defensive system, which often called for Flowers to cover bigger and more physical receivers.

    The Chiefs cut Brandon Flowers to save cap room. He was the best cornerback they had, so the only question is how hefty the bill will be, writes Adam Teicher

    The Chiefs released him anyway, saving $7.5 million this year against the salary cap and another $7.5 against their cap next year. They will need that cap room if they sign quarterback Alex Smith and linebacker Justin Houston to contract extensions.

    Not interested. short, and obviously not a team player.

    We're fine at CB now.
