Several offensive linemen went off the board during the first day of free agency, but none landed with a Giants team that struggled in that area last season.

The Giants reportedly have their eye on a potential addition to the group, however. Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports that they have scheduled a visit with D.J. Fluker.

Fluker saw time at both guard and tackle during his four years with the Chargers after the team made him a first-round pick in the 2013 draft. He started 59 games over his time in San Diego and had his fifth-year option exercised, but the deal wasn’t guaranteed and the Chargers released him this week.

There’s been discussion about the Giants moving left tackle Ereck Flowers to the right side, but signing Fluker wouldn’t be a signal in that direction as he also lined up on that side when he was with the Chargers. Raanan adds that the Patriots are also interested in Fluker, which would be rendered moot if the Giants are able to lock him up during a visit.

  1. Like it or not Ereck Flowers will absolutely be this teams LT next year. Hopefully we can get a little run game going to take some pass rush pressure off of him. Hopefully this guy can help.

  2. The Carson City Chargers are the “flook.” Spanos and his merry band are setting up the team for some unsuspecting billionaire who wants a new toy. Rumor has it the team is not happy with the move considering they’ll have NO home games next year. Carson City soccer stadium doesn’t cut it and the CC Chargers will be starting all over again if and when Kroenke stadium gets built. What a mess Spanos and the NFL have created!

  3. Giants MUST resign John Jerry.

    Sign Fluker too.

    2017 starting RG: John Jerry

    680 pounds of beef on the right side.

  4. Flowers will be better at left tackle . Trust me . He got behind the eight ball last season and I’m sure he is doing everything he can to make it right . Watch him play like a stud this year .

  5. Fluker is a good guy and probably a real positive in the locker room. But on the field he’s a back-up, not a starter. Yes, he’s big and he’s strong. But he’s just OK as a run blocker, and in pass blocking he’s vulnerable to anybody with half decent speed and moves. Feet of concrete.

  6. Spanos’s move from SD and NFL approval will prove to be a massive mistake. L-a-a Land entertainment dollar is too thin…. spread out. Who’s gonna pay $5,000 to $7,000 for 2 decent seats to see Carson City play in a semi-pro venue?Prices will rise significantly when they move in 2 to 3 to 4 years to Kroenke stadium. In truth, Spanos doesn’t care cause he gets an even split from TV revenues… it’s play-money. He’s setting up the team for sale. Sad.
