Ereck Flowers' stint with Giants comes to an end

The Giants are ready to move on from Ereck Flowers.

"We appreciate Ereck Flowers' efforts with the team".

NY had been pursuing a trade of its 2015 first-round draft pick, but it appears none were available.

Shurmur moved Flowers to right tackle after Solder was signed and said he was getting a fresh start. Any team trading for him would owe about $1.7 million over the rest of the season.

The 2018 season has represented a dramatic fall from grace for Flowers, who was selected with the ninth-overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

According to, the Giants have finally chose to give up on Flowers, with the team planning to cut or release him by 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday. "Sometimes a change of scenery is good for a person, and we're just hopeful he can go out and continue to have a good career".

Flowers is now listed as the backup at both left and right tackle.

After being drafted with the 9th pick out of Miami the expectations were high, and he was never able to live up to those in NY.

After two subpar starts, Flowers was benched in favor of second-year man Chad Wheeler and has played sparingly since.

Giants coach Pat Shurmur confirmed that the report is accurate. He pushed a reporter after a loss during the 2016 season. During that span, the Giants' offensive line struggled often and Flowers was a big reason why.

This year did not begin well for Flowers under the new regime led by general manager Dave Gettleman.

Flowers was not at the Giants' practice Monday. When he finally showed, they still immediately inserted him as the first-team right tackle.
