Brandon Flowers is staying in the AFC West but heading to San Diego.

Flowers has agreed to a contract with the Chargers. It’s a one-year deal, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports.

For Flowers, who was cut by the Chiefs 11 days ago, signing a one-year contract is a way of betting on himself. He’ll hit free agency next year with a chance to cash in on a big contract.

The 28-year-old Flowers has already received one big contract, having signed a five-year, $50 million contract with $22 million guaranteed in 2011. Flowers only played three of the five years on that deal. Now he’ll play one year in San Diego and see where the market is in March.
