Former Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers will remain in the AFC West. After visiting the Chargers last week, the 28 year-old veteran agreed to a one-year deal on Tuesday.

This was a much needed addition for the Chargers, who had one of the worst pass defenses in the league last season.

After releasing Derek Cox and Johnny Patrick this offseason, the Chargers signed Cincinnati Bengals free agent Brandon Ghee and drafted Jason Verrett out of Texas Christian with their first round pick. Also on the roster is Richard Marshall and Shareece Wright, who ended last season as the starters.

Flowers was drafted by the Chiefs in the second round in 2008. After six seasons including a Pro Bowl selection in 2013, he was released earlier this month. The Chargers face the Chiefs on Oct. 19th at home, and Dec. 28th at Arrowhead Stadium.
