Ereck Flowers Reports To Giants, Trade Still A Possibility

Adam Schefter reports that Giants OT Ereck Flowers reported to the team on Monday after skipping the team’s offseason program.

According to Schefter, a trade involving Flowers remains a possibility but the Giants intend to play him at right tackle for the time being.

The Giants were reportedly looking for a mid-round pick in return for Flowers during the draft, but couldn’t find a taker. Flowers skipped voluntary¬†workouts last week, so it remains to be seen whether he’ll be back with the team for the 2018 season.

Flowers, 23, is a former No. 9 overall pick out of Miami by the Giants in the 2015 NFL Draft. He is entering the final year of a four-year $14.391 million rookie contract that is fully guaranteed is set to earn a base salary of $2,397,522 for 2018.

The Giants declined to pick up Flowers’ fifth-year option a few weeks ago.

In 2017, Flowers appeared in 15 games for the Giants and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 54 overall tackle out of 81 qualifiers.
