Ereck Flowers is heading for a second stint in Washington.

The Dolphins and Football Team have agreed to a trade that will send Flowers to Washington for a swap of late-round picks, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Flowers previously played for Washington in 2019, then signed a three-year, $30 million contract with Miami last year. He’s due to make $9 million this season.

Originally the ninth overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft, Flowers was selected by the Giants with the idea that he’d develop into a franchise left tackle. He never did that, but he’s become a solid starting guard, and Washington clearly believes it has just upgraded its offensive line.

  1. Lions won’t pass on Lance if he is there at 7- they need a QB when they release Goff after the end of the season

    Your lack of reading fundamentals absolutely blows my mind. How you got that out of the article is fascinating

  3. 9 million for a guard is a bit of money. Better to clear the cap space going cheaper and younger.

  4. Another Chris Grier disaster fa signing/rental. You gave the guy 12 miliion last year, for what?

    That team with Tua is in serious trouble with such a lack of talent

  5. $9 million for a dependable starting guard isn’t expensive. It’s only expensive if the player isn’t able to play up to expectations. But then why is Miami trading him for so little?

    Not sure why you are personally attacking my reading fundamentals, when I open the article the video that plays shows what Simms picks at I think the top 10 selections, they have Lions taking Sewell –and another team down from the Lions take Lance- maybe you should be assess the situation first before knocking someone else’s reading fundamentals

    Have your seen Erich “turnstile” Flowers play?

  8. He is a Mauler … don’t ask him to to much , just open the hole for the back big guy.

  9. Hmmmmmmmmmmm
    Don’t understand how the Lions are being commented on when this article is about Miami trading Ereck Flowers to Washington,,,the video is really talking about the latest trade news,,,

  10. Washington signed him to a one year contract and moved him to guard in 2019. He played so well that Miami signed him to a 3 year deal. He is not a turn-stile at guard, he is in space at tackle. He was a mauler that I’m glad to have back.

  11. Ereck Flowers, Eli Apple, Deandre Baker (prince, pugh, freaking david wilson)….and to obviously lesser extents Odell, Engram, Saquon, and possibly Daniel Jones.

    My Giants havent truly nailed a 1st round pick since JPP in 2010.

  12. Flowers played at nearly an all pro level in Washington, thanks in part to the tutelage of John Matsko, arguably the best offensive line coach in the league. This is a great trade for WFT. Quietly, WFT has put together a stellar off-season with substantial improvements at QB, WR, Corner, and Offensive Line. Rivera knows what he is doing.

  13. Flowers was horrible at LT in NY. When he got to DC and was move to guard, he played very really well. After chasing dollars and going back home to Miami, I think he requested to go back to DC via trade to follow Fitzmajic. This will be the last year for Shereff.

  14. Yeah… is this where I should make comments about what the Seahawks should do in the third round?

  15. Drafted to be a 12-year franchise LT, now barely hanging on in the league as a G. Yikes.

    flowers and apple were trash, baker not looking like he’s the answer in kc…prince wasn’t bad, pugh was good until the back injury and david wilson was fun as hell to watch until the neck injury, i think he would have been something…obj was a top 2 wr for a couple years, so they nailed that..evan engram is by far the biggest bust, if you’re gonna take a te in the first rd he better be able to block and catch, he can’t do either

  17. Looking at the WFT schedule, I could see them starting 9-2 against a lot of soft teams but man their last 5, Bucs, Chiefs, Chargers, Seahawks, and Bills, might end up 10-6. Should be enough to win the division as long as they beat the teams they are better than early on.

    I would like to borrow your time machine since you already know the order of the games before the schedule comes out. We have no idea what order the games will be in until the schedule comes out on May 12.

    Also, winning the division does not give you a soft schedule. If ours is soft then most other teams is softer.

  19. People critisizing Flowers haven’t followed him closely the past two years. Sure he was a lousy tackle, but at guard he has played extremely well. And $9 million for a very good guard isn’t expensive. Top guards are making $15 million/yr.
