Seattle drafted Flowers in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL draft following a standout career at Oklahoma State. He spent all four of his NFL seasons with the Seahawks until his release earlier this afternoon.
Flowers was a backup for the team, but it’s still a loss for the Seahawks. Seattle on pace for one of the worst defensive showings in NFL history so far this season.
Losing depth at corner won’t help. Add in the fact that star quarterback Russell Wilson is out for at least four weeks and things aren’t looking good in Seattle.
Up next is a trip to Pittsburgh for a contest against the Steelers.
