Erika Esola, who if you recall was spot on about the visit from Chris Johnson and his salary, has some more information today about the New York Jets:
The Jets have already reached out to Brandon Flowers, per local source. Chiefs - Jets tried to work out a trade in May but Idzik said no.— Erika Esola (@emesola) June 14, 2014
So from what I have gathered, expect Flowers to work out with the Jets this week. Also heard the Dolphins are interested in bringing him in.— Erika Esola (@emesola) June 14, 2014
From speaking to Erika, she's said that the market is obviously much more saturated for Flowers than it was for Johnson, yet the team remains a front runner at this point in time. They have the cap space and the positional need, so there's obviously a fit.
As I said yesterday, the team should seriously look into signing Flowers, and it appears they are. There are many valid concerns about Flowers, whether he can revert to his top form, and whether he can survive in Rex Ryan's scheme. However, he would still be far and away the best cornerback on the roster, and I trust that Ryan can adapt his scheme to fit Flowers' skill set.
