Giants part ways with 2015 first-round pick Ereck Flowers

Giants part ways with 2015 first-round pick Ereck Flowers

Flowers' pending release/trade is a step in the right direction in terms of correcting the issues along the Giants' offensive line, but the immediate future isn't much brighter.

Flowers was switched from left tackle to right this past offseason after the Giants declined his fifth-year option and signed former New England Patriots lineman Nate Solder to be their new left tackle.

The Ereck Flowers era is officially over.

NY benched the former first-round pick prior to Week 3.

Although Flowers has started 48 games in his career and is just 24 years old, he isn't developing the way the Giants wanted him to, and if anything he appears to have regressed. But the Daily News learned as of late Monday afternoon, Flowers was gone from the building and effectively off the team already.

"It has run its course", Shurmur said of the decision to drop Flowers.

Flowers had started the first two games of the season but struggled and was benched in favor of Chad Wheeler in week three.

The Giants will return to action on Thursday night in a divisional showdown against the Philadelphia Eagle at home (8:20 p.m. ET, Fox/NFL Network/Amazon Prime). "Even these last weeks, when you're told someone else is playing, he's done everything we've asked him to do".

Flowers had not played in the spot since his freshman year with the Hurricanes in 2012. They played Spencer Pulley over Flowers as an extra tackle in Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints. I appreciate the way he's played hurt and handled a tough situation.

He did not, and so now he is part of the Giants' future, while Flowers is officially - finally - in the past.
