BOSTON (CBS) — The New England Patriots have already added Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner to their defensive backfield, but are reportedly looking to bring in another veteran corner.

The Patriots are one of a handful of teams currently showing interest in free agent cornerback Brandon Flowers, according to a report from the Baltimore Sun.

The 28-year-old Flowers was cut by the Chiefs earlier this week after six seasons in Kansas City. Flowers has 17 interceptions, four forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries over his career, and recorded 71 tackles and one interception last season while dealing with a knee injury.

Flowers, a second-round pick in 2008 out of Virginia Tech, was selected to his first Pro Bowl last season.

Signing Flowers would provide New England with additional depth at corner, with Browner suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. Corner Alfonzo Dennard was also missing from this week’s mandatory mini-camp as he recovers from off-season shoulder surgery, according to The Boston Globe.

According to the Sun, 10 teams have made contact with Flowers since his release, including the Ravens, Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions.
