Ereck Flowers didn’t do very well as a left tackle or a right tackle for the Giants and one of their NFC East rivals will reportedly be changing his position for the 2019 season.

John Keim of reports that Washington will be moving Flowers to guard. Flowers signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the team on Monday.

With Brandon Scherff on hand at right guard, Flowers will likely go into the mix of options at left guard. Shawn Lauvao, Jonathan Cooper, Luke Bowanko, Chase Roullier and Ty Nsekhe all saw time there last season, but Roullier is now at center while Nsekhe signed with Buffalo and the others are free agents.

Keim adds that Flowers is also expected to get some work at tackle while Geron Christian recovers from a knee injury. Christian is the top returning backup to left tackle Trent Williams and right tackle Morgan Moses.

  1. Giants fans will be here soon to say how bad he is. Remember that the Giants Oline has stunk for years whether they try high priced free agents like Nate Solder, top 10 picks like Flowers, or the 34 overall pick from last year Will Hernandez.

    The common denominator is that the Giants can’t produce a good Oline no matter how much draft capital or actual capital they throw at it. At some point you have to conclude it’s the Giants that stink and not necessarily the players.

  2. $4M?!?!?! Just when Ereck Flowers’ agent was just about to sell his fishing boat for next months rent………

    That works out to about $250,000 per false start………

  3. Ive saying they will put him at guard . Sherrif was drafted to be the right tackle but he struggle so they moved him inside and turned out it was a great decision. I trust bill Callahan will get the most out of flowers at left guard. Great pick up

  4. Ereck Flowers getting a $4mil deal is astonishing. I mean, god bless him and all, but he is not an NFL player.

  5. They can play him wherever they want…it doesn’t matter. He’s terrible and they will find that out rather quickly.

  6. The Giants should have moved him. It’s so obvious he’s more suited for guard than tackle. I been saying this before he was drafted.

  7. He’s. NOT making 4 million, he’s making 1.5 with incentives that could make it 4 million. Those incentives are tied to him making the team as the starting LG.
