Giants Waive Ereck Flowers

Adjust Comment Print

The Ereck Flowers era is officially over. "We appreciate Ereck's efforts, and we just wish him the best".

Flowers appeared in 51 games over his four seasons in NY.

In March, new general manager Dave Gettleman signed former Patriot Nate Solder to take over at left tackle, moving Flowers to the right side.

The team officially waived Flowers on Tuesday, less than 24 hours after deciding to cut ties with their 2015 ninth overall pick.

Halftime Report: Eagles vs Vikings
Pederson tried to accept blame for the team's struggles. "We have to take a real hard look in the mirror", Wentz explained. The Vikings never trailed again in the game, and in fact, played to the tune of a 20-3 lead well into the third quarter.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Flowers will be released if he isn't traded by 4:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

Flowers was forced into the starting lineup at left tackle during his rookie season when Will Beatty tore his pectoral muscle in the spring.

The No. 9 overall pick in the 2015 National Football League draft out of Miami, Flowers was a head-scratching pick to fans and analysts alike at the time, and their confusion was proved well-founded once Flowers hit the field at the next level. "Sometimes a change of scenery is good for a person".

Flowers was replaced with Chad Wheeler on the offensive line after being given a chance to prove himself at right tackle this season. He pushed a reporter after a loss during the 2016 season. The Giants could promote tackle Brian Mihalik from the practice squad to serve as an emergency swing tackle with center/guard Spencer Pulley serving as an extra lineman and jumbo tight end in sub packages. "The first run and the first couple times I tackled him, I said; 'this kid has something.' ..." Flowers consistently struggled to protect Eli Manning's blind side. He stayed there until two poor performances to start the season.
