Flowers is expected to officially retire on Tuesday, Steve Wyche of the NFL Network reports.
Flowers spent six seasons with the Chiefs before playing his last three for the Chargers. He most recently visited with the Cardinals prior to training camp, but has ultimately decided to retire from football. Flowers will finish his career with 487 tackles, three sacks, 21 interceptions, one forced fumble and one touchdown across nine seasons.
Flowers will visit with the Cardinals on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Schefter noted that Flowers, 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.
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 also was due $9 million in 2017, and his release saves the Chargers $7 million of that money, so his departure 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.

With the signing of Trovon Reed from the practice squad, the move may signal Flowers (concussion) could miss some time, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Given the fact that Flowers missed four games earlier in the year with a concussion, it seems likely the 30-year-old corner could be held out for an extended period after suffering his second concussion of the season in the Week 10 contest against the Dolphins. If Flowers does miss time as expected, the Chargers will be dangerously thin at the cornerback spot, as Craig Mager or Trevor Williams will be forced to start opposite Casey Hayward.
Flowers is being evaluated for a concussion after suffering a head injury in Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
This is pretty alarming news for Flowers and Chargers fans, as he missed four games earlier this season with a concussion and has a long history of head injuries. As long as Flowers is out, expect Casey Hayward to see an increased role in the San Diego secondary.
