The Chiefs have agreed to a contract extension with CB Brandon Flowers, keeping the emerging playmaker under contract for the near future.

First reported by the NFL Network's Andrew Siciliano, the Flowers and the Chiefs have agreed to a five-year, $50 deal, with $22 million guaranteed. Flowers is considered one of the team's top young players, and was a top priority after a long-term deal for OLB Tamba Hali was worked out earlier in the offseason.

Drafted in the second round of the 2008 draft, the Virginia Tech product has been an impact player in his three full seasons in the league. In 45 career games, Flowers has 201 tackles and 10 interceptions.

The way we see it

The Chiefs' strategy is to keep its solid corps of young players, and Flowers is a major part of that. His job will be tougher this season than it was a year ago, as Pro Bowl SS Eric Berry is now out of the lineup after tearing an ACL in the season opener.
