Giants Releasing Ereck Flowers if He's Not Traded by Tuesday Afternoon

Giants Releasing Ereck Flowers if He's Not Traded by Tuesday Afternoon

Flowers' time with the Giants was filled with uneven play and questionable moments.

"We appreciate Ereck Flowers' efforts with the team". It's just that after four uneven years in NY, he's already gone.

The Giants had tried to move Flowers to right tackle when they signed left tackle Nate Solder this offseason.

The Giants had hoped to find a trade partner, but that was always unlikely because they would have been responsible for the $1.69 million he was owed the rest of the season.

The New York Giants have waived former first-round draft pick Ereck Flowers and signed tackle Brian Mihalik off their practice squad to replace him.

The Giants drafted Flowers with the ninth pick in the 2015 draft, one pick ahead of the then-St. NY took him No. 9 overall, hoping he'd be a franchise left tackle, but he was bad.

Giants coach Pat Shurmur confirmed that the report is accurate.

According to Pro Football Focus, Flowers, who has spent a majority of his Giants career as the team's starting left tackle, allowed 169 quarterback pressures from 2015 through 2017, the most let up by any tackle in the league in that span.

New general manager Dave Gettleman also decided after last season not to pick up the option on the final year of Flowers' rookie contract.

Following a Week 2 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Flowers was benched in favor of Chad Wheeler, who hasn't provided an enormous upgrade. Giants coach Pat Shurmur said on Monday that sometimes a change of senary is best for both parties and that the team wished him nothing but the best moving forward.
