While Richard Sherman, Darrelle Revis and Patrick Peterson are often referred to as the top cornerbacks in the NFL, Chargers CB Brandon Flowers recently said he’s the best at his position.
That topic is certainly open to debate, as Flowers is coming off a solid but not shutdown cornerback-esque 2013 season. And he’s now joining a secondary that struggled immensely to defend the pass last year and ranked 29th in the league.

Flowers may believe living a lavish lifestyle and appearing confident will help back up his claim about being the best. But at the end of the day, it’s all about how he performs on the field. Still, it’s a pretty cool tattoo nonetheless.
