SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Chargers have agreed to a deal with former Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers.

The team announced the deal Tuesday. San Diego gave Flowers a one-year deal, according to FOX Sports 1 NFL insider Mike Garafolo. 

Kansas City released Flowers earlier this month after three weeks of voluntary workouts during which the former starter was conspicuously absent. Flowers was due to make $5.25 million this season with the Chiefs, and he carried a salary cap number of $10.5 million.

Flowers was the Chiefs' second-round pick in 2008 and he started 87 of the 88 games he played over six seasons, making 421 tackles, two sacks and 17 interceptions, two of which he returned for touchdowns.

But Flowers gradually lost time to Marcus Cooper and other defensive backs under a new regime last season.
