    @JasonLaCanfora: Can confirm ESPN report that Brandon Flowers will stay in San Diego. 4yr deal worth $36M. Corners continue to do very well

    Depends! For instance, your friend Jack Frost will sell you Australia in it'd entirety for 1/3 of that sum and will also include New Zealand as a bonus ;)

    The price is high but it's hard to argue. We need that #1 CB and outside of Revis this is the best option out there. I think this is worth it, and it had to be done. Flowers has shown himself to be everything we've been missing in a #1 CB and combined with Verrett the Chargers have good cornerbacks (two of them) for the first time since maybe 2001.

    I hope that the cap hit for 2015 is less than 9 million (1/4) so they can sign other FAs

    I think they said he gets a new Kia Sportage and parking lot space at Chargers HQ with his name on it.

    I read somewhere that this year's cap hit for Flowers is only 4 mil.

    Probably contains some sort of signing bonus which I think they can spread out.

    I think that's Dunlaps cap hit, but it wouldn't entirely shock me if we did something similar with Flowers.
