Flowers is visiting with the Cardinals on Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Schefter noted that Flowers is, who finished last season on injured reserve due to a series of concussions, is also in contact with the Patriots. However, if he were to sign with the Cardinals, he'd have a much clearer path to a starting gig, as the No. 2 job opposite Patrick Peterson is seemingly up for grabs.

Flowers was released by the Chargers on Tuesday, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a great first season with the Chargers in 2014, during which he recorded three interceptions, Flowers' production declined during the last two years. Injuries have plagued the veteran cornerback, as he has played in just 17 games over the last two seasons combined. Flowers was also due $9 million in 2017, and his release saves the Chargers $7 million of that money, so his release is a financial move by the team in advance of free agency starting March 9. As long as teams aren't scared away by his medical past, Flowers should find a spot on an NFL roster come September.
