Ereck Flowers hires Drew Rosenhaus

Giants tackle Ereck Flowers went without an agent for his first three years in the NFL, but he’s opted for a different approach as his fourth year unfolds.

Flowers has hired Drew Rosenhaus to represent him at a moment when he is not attending the team’s offseason program after a rough 2017 season and a move to right tackle after the Giants signed Nate Solder. There were multiple reports about a desire to trade Flowers leading up to the draft, but didn’t get an offer to their liking.

“Really the only comment is I have a good relationship with the organization, and I will be speaking with them soon about Ereck,” Rosenhaus said, via the New York Post.

The Giants are on the hook for Flowers’ entire $4.5 million-plus cap hit this year, so it wasn’t a great surprise to hear they plan to keep him rather than cut him without getting anything in return. Rosenhaus could work to get the Giants to change that plan in a way Flowers couldn’t do on his own or at least serve as a conduit that works through the strained lines of communication that currently exist between team and player.

  1. It’s tempting to save that commission money but there’s a reason why the agents get paid.

  2. All the big time 1st round draft picks were moved to Guard, except Ogbuechi who struggled at RT and didn’t do so hot replacing Whitworth. The other porjected 1st rounder, La’el Collins was an UDFA (we all know why) never played Tackle either.

    They ALL would have failed as the Giants LT.

    He got beat up playing out of position by the players and the media. Everyone single one of the guys was over-drafted (minus Collins, who would have been a good 2nd round Guard pick), including Scherff.

    That’s what Rosenhaus is going to say. I would think he would be SMART enough, or experienced enough to know this and point it out.

    Am I the only one who remembers that the 2015 Tackles all played G except Flowers?

    Let him play Guard and give him a fresh start. Either with the Giants or let him go.

    He never had a chance, since he was obviously overmatched from Day 1. Maybe he has the physical talent and not the mental make-up, IDK. All I know is he is not quick enough to pass protect the edge. THAT should have been obvious going up against JPP in practice. Yet they sent him out there week after week.

  3. Fact #1, the Giants will not pick up his 5th year option.
    Fact #2, the Giants will not release Flowers because it doesn’t make economic sense.
    Fact #3, the Giants will allow Dru to try to get something for Flowers.
    Fact #4, the Giants will take anything they can get for Flowers.
    Fact #5, the Giants know that Flowers is history in NY.

    Why get an agent now, he’s under contract.
    Backwards logic.

    Since it’s extremely unlikely the Giants will be picking up his fifth-year option, he’s in the last year of his rookie contract. Hiring an agent now means a whole year of the agent rebuilding his reputation in order to maximize the earnings on his next contract.

    Forward thinking.

  5. He needs to get top advice as to what to do to totally pee off the giants and get traded. He sees writing on the wall and he aint the poster boy any more, time to move, time to get an agent to help him move

  6. Hopefully Drew has learned his lesson and doesn’t allow his client to do situps in the driveway during a press conference, especially with his shirt off.

    Collins played RT and got whipped every game.

    But I get your point.

  8. Flowers is an idiot. Told to have his hands at chest height to pass block, they were always at his waist. He missed more blocks on screens and WR screens than any tackle I’ve ever seen. The guy simply cannot block in space. These problems are not fixable by moving to RT unless Flowers realizes that if he doesn’t fix them his career is over. Given his attitude, it probably is anyway. Hope he was smart enough to save his money. Probably not.
