New York made the decision to bench Flowers in favor of Chad Wheeler a few weeks ago, so it’s not surprising that they’re ready to move on from the former first-round pick.
Flowers has been available for trade for some time now, so it would be surprising to see them find a trade partner for him, given that the acquiring team would take on the remainder of his salary.
Flowers, 24, is a former No. 9 overall pick out of Miami by the Giants in the 2015 NFL Draft. He is 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 back in May.
In 2018, Flowers has appeared in two games for the Giants.
