The Chiefs drafted Brandon Flowers hoping he could eventually be their first home-grown Pro Bowl cornerback since Dale Carter more than a decade ago.

They wanted Flowers, who will replace Ty Law in the lineup, in training camp on time, and there were signs Tuesday that a contract agreement was near.

“We’re getting close,” said Flowers’ agent, Andy Ross. “We’ve been talking. I think we’ll be able to finish it up (today).”

The Chiefs drafted Flowers early in the second round. He and Patrick Surtain are the starters, but another rookie, fifth-round pick Brandon Carr, could eventually push Surtain for a starting spot.

The Chiefs continued to work on contract agreements with their two first-round picks, defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey and offensive linemen Branden Albert.

Training camp begins Friday in River Falls, Wis.

Just to add, they were saying on the radio earlier that Flowers appeared to be a done deal, and everyone seems to think Albert will be done before camp gets underway.

I heard that Albert would be at camp so he can get down the plays with or without a contract.

Zero percent chance he's there without a contract.

I think Dorsey is the last of the three they need to worry about. For an NFL ready player like that, missing a week or two of camp is not going to hurt him. And its less opportunity for him to get injured, which is an issue until proven otherwise.

Isnt it against NFL rules to go to organised training camps and team activities till the player has signed...?

He cant be there without a contract. NFLPA would jump all over that.

well after Ryan Sims, i dont trust any DT being late to training camp....not that it wouldve mattered, but we need Dorsey off to a good start.

Now all we need is for Merritt to sign and we're golden. He's the linchpin for the SB winning season next year!

Flowers will be the hinge of the door. Sooner we sign them, the better our chances at playing well.

I agree. I'm not even sure if it would be legal.
