The hits just keep coming for the Chargers this morning. The team has reportedly made a third move to free up space for free agency, and to sign their upcoming draft picks.

CB Brandon Flowers is to be released.

Cutting Flowers is the right move. He was a stud in run defense last year, however he is becoming more of a liability in coverage. Couple that with all of his concussions and this is a solid move for the Chargers.

For his own health, I would hope that Flowers at least considers retirement at this point. However I wouldn’t blame him if he wants to keep rolling.

The first 3 moves by the Chargers today have cleared up about $19.3 million in cap space. Adding that to the $5.146 they already had and the Chargers are at just about $24.5 million in free space. I would expect at least one more cut to create more space.
