Giants wanted to trade Ereck Flowers during draft, source says

Ereck Flowers’ minicamp absence draws Gettleman’s ire

The New York Giants just finished off season voluntary workouts, but one former first round draft pick was not in attendance.

According to ESPN, which cited an unidentified source, NY was open to trading the offensive tackle during the NFL Draft but couldn't find a suitable trade partner. He's an adult. He has the ability to make decisions on his own. There is a $12.5 million fifth-year option on the contract, but it is unlikely that the front office will decide to pick that up prior to the May 3 deadline. The Giants also selected an offensive lineman in the draft, UTEP's Will Hernandez, in the second round. This is a voluntary program, and he made a decision to stay in Miami. "If you want to know why he's not here, call him". The Giants still have a use for Flowers because of a dearth of offensive tackles. Flowers is expected to compete for the starting right tackle position along with 2017 undrafted free agent Chad Wheeler.

When the New York Giants took left tackle Ereck Flowers ninth overall in the 2015 NFL Draft, they hoped that he would protect Eli Manning's blindside and help anchor the offensive line for years. His future with the team may very well depend on how he performs during the summer.


"This is a hard time to talk about those kinds of things because it's voluntary, I get that", Shurmur said Monday morning on WFAN, via the New York Post. He has trained in his native Florida instead. But I saw a lot of good thigs from him a year ago on tape. With just over $9.6 million remaining in cap space, according to spotrac.com, it may be hard for the New York Giants to add an impact player at all three positions of need. He's now set to count $4.6 million against the salary cap.

Still, since he's guaranteed $2.4 million this season and the team was unable to move him, Flowers will likely be on the team in 2018.
