Jaguars signed OT Ereck Flowers, formerly of the Giants.
Flowers reunites with EVP Tom Coughlin in Jacksonville, who coached Flowers his rookie year. It's a good landing spot with LT Josh Wells going to IR. Flowers was benched after a disastrous two-week stretch to open the year, but he's still only 24 with starting caliber traits. The Jaguars are hoping Flowers can get turned around with a change of scenery. Oct 12 - 2:22 PM

Free agent OT Ereck Flowers will visit the Jaguars on Thursday.

It's the first team connected to Flowers since he cleared waivers. Flowers has multiple visits lined up if he leaves Jacksonville without a deal. He shouldn't take long to resurface.

Giants waived OT Ereck Flowers.

The Giants were attempting to trade Flowers, but that was never going to happen in part because he is still owed $2.4 million guaranteed this season. That contract also makes it unlikely he is claimed off waivers. It is likely some team takes a chance on the former No. 9 overall pick once he becomes a free agent, but there is little reason to believe Flowers will develop into a quality NFL tackle.
Oct 9 - 11:17 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Giants are on the verge of releasing OT Ereck Flowers.

Per Schefter, Flowers will be cut if the Giants can't find a trade partner by Tuesday's 4pm ET transactions deadline. The No. 9 overall pick in the 2015 draft, Flowers was a massive liability in his first three seasons at left tackle and couldn't hack it when moved to the right side this year. He hasn't even played since Week 2. Meanwhile, Bengals RT Bobby Hart -- whom the Giants cut last season -- has held up reasonably well in Cincinnati after a slow start.
Oct 8 - 4:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Giants have benched RT Ereck Flowers.

The Giants had hoped that moving Flowers to the right side would reinvigorate him, but clearly that has not been the case through two games. The 24-year-old has been a complete and utter liability, earning PFF's No. 60 grade out of 68 qualifiers at tackle. Chad Wheeler will spell Flowers at right tackle Sunday against Houston. To quote Gob Bluth, using a first-round pick on Flowers was a "huge mistake."
Sep 23 - 8:08 AM

Ex-Giants coach Ben McAdoo doesn't expect a "career awakening" for Ereck Flowers at right tackle.

"He can’t bend, you got to be able to bend," said McAdoo in his first comments since getting fired. "You can run around him just like you can on the other side, Eli just gets to see it, which may help Eli." Flowers impressed coaches with his right tackle play at minicamp, but he's in a make-or-break year. The Giants are counting on an improved line after adding Nate Solder and Will Hernandez this offseason.
Jul 13 - 7:59 PM

NJ Advance Media's Matt Lombardo writes Ereck Flowers has been "impressing teammates and coaches at right tackle."

Angry about being replaced at left tackle, Flowers skipped a large chunk of the offseason program, but he was back in the fold and working as the first-team right tackle by minicamp. Showing well at his new position, Flowers looks likely to open the season as a starter. Patrick Omameh should start next to Flowers at right guard with Jon Halapio at center, rookie Will Hernandez at left guard, and Nate Solder at left tackle.

Ereck Flowers worked as the first-team right tackle during OTAs.

It is a sign of support by the coaching staff after Flowers skipped much of the offseason program and the team reportedly tried to move him during the draft. In addition to Flowers, the Giants had Nate Solder at left tackle, Patrick Omameh at left guard, Brett Jones at center, and John Greco at right guard to start OTAs. Second-round OG Will Hernandez worked with the second-team.
May 21 - 10:31 AM

OT Ereck Flowers reported to the Giants' training facility on Monday.

Upset about being replaced by Nate Solder, Flowers had been a no-show for the offseason program, and the Giants attempted to trade him during the draft. They were unsuccessful, however, and now it looks like both sides are stuck with each other for another season. Owed a guaranteed $2.4 million salary, Flowers will compete for a job at right tackle.
May 14 - 11:06 AM

Giants HC Pat Shurmur said he's been in contact with disgruntled OT Ereck Flowers.

Giants declined Flowers' 2019 team option and shopped him throughout the offseason. With his $2.4 million salary fully guaranteed, there aren't any plans to cut Flowers despite his poor performance in 2017. He'll compete for the right tackle job opposite Nate Solder in training camp.
May 12 - 11:56 AM

Giants declined OT Ereck Flowers' 2019 team option.

This was fully expected. The Giants shopped Flowers during the draft, but didn't find any takers. With his $2.4 million salary fully guaranteed, there aren't any plans to cut Flowers despite his shaky 2017. Flowers will compete for the right tackle job opposite Nate Solder in training camp.
May 2 - 4:26 PM

The New York Post reports the Giants are not planning to cut Ereck Flowers at this point.

The team tried to move Flowers during the draft, but they, unsurprisingly, did not find any takers. With the trade window shut, the Giants are content to let the situation play out and hope Flowers shows up for the mandatory minicamp in June -- he has skipped voluntary work to this point. If he sticks with the Giants, Flowers is expected to compete for the right tackle job.
May 1 - 9:07 AM

The Giants shopped OT Ereck Flowers during the draft, but found no takers at their asking price of a middle-round pick.

It's hardly surprising considering how poor Flowers' on-field play has been, and how bad his attitude has been off the field. One team told ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan the middle-round asking price was "significantly too steep." It doesn't help that Flowers' $2.4 million salary for 2018 is fully guaranteed. Flowers did not report to the Giants' pre-draft offseason workouts.
Apr 30 - 4:26 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Giants have had trade talks about OT Ereck Flowers.

After being replaced in free agency, Flowers has been a no-show for the offseason program to this point. His time with the Giants seems up, and it would not be surprising to see him moved this weekend during the draft. If he sticks around, Flowers is expected to compete for the right tackle job.
Apr 24 - 8:49 AM

ESPN's Jordan Raanan said "don't be surprised" if the Giants look to trade OT Ereck Flowers during the draft.

The former first-round pick has been a no-show for offseason workouts, a decision that has not been "well-received" within the organization. Even with Flowers due a reasonable $2.4 million in the final year of his rookie deal—the Giants are expected to decline his fifth-year option—the 23-year-old may struggle to draw trade interest. One anonymous NFC scout told Raanan he "wouldn't want him in the building" while adding that Flowers "sounds like he's not worth the trouble." Flowers earned PFF's No. 63 tackle grade out of 83 qualifiers last year.
