  • Bengals' Tre Flowers: Back with Bengals

    Flowers signed a one-year contract worth $1.85 million to re-sign with the Bengals on Thursday, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports. Flowers joined the Bengals part way through the 2021 campaign after being cut by the Seahawks. He was primarily a contributor on special teams in Cincinnati, though he did serve as a depth piece among the secondary. Flowers managed to rack up 23 tackles across 11 games in that role, and he is likely to have a similar impact in 2022.

  • Bengals' Tre Flowers: Lands with Cincinnati

    Flowers was acquired on waivers by the Bengals on Thursday. Flowers was cut by the Seahawks earlier this week after being relegated to a backup role for the past few weeks. He's likely to stick in a depth role with his new team, particularly as he familiarizes himself with a different scheme.

  • Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Surprisingly wins starting job

    Flowers is expected to start at right cornerback in the season opener against the Colts, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Flowers lost the starting right cornerback role twice last season, and he wasn't really in the starting conversation at the beginning of training camp because Ahkello Witherspoon signed for $4 million guaranteed. However, head coach Pete Carroll said Flowers had "such a good camp" that he earned the starting role on the right side, while D.J. Reed will handle the left cornerback duties. Flowers, a converted safety, won't have much room for error with Witherspoon waiting in the wings.

  • Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Designated to return

    Flowers (hamstring) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports. Flowers landed on IR on Dec. 5, and he is now eligible to return to practice. Per Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic, Flowers is likely to suit up for Sunday's key divisional clash against the Rams. If that is the case, Flowers will likely fill a situational role in Seattle's secondary.

  • Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Likely to return Week 16

    Flowers (hamstring) is on track to return in Week 16, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Flowers has been on injured reserve since suffering a hamstring injury in Week 12. He's expected to return to practice next week, and if all goes well, he'll be in the lineup for a crucial divisional showdown versus the Rams in Week 16. Quinton Dunbar has returned from IR as well, meaning Flowers will shift back to a situational role upon his return to the lineup.

  • Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Doubtful Week 13

    Flowers (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Giants, Joe Fann of NBC Sports Northwest reports. The 25-year-old is unlikely to play this weekend after picking up the hamstring injury last week against the Eagles, though he played every defensive snap in that contest. D.J. Reed could step into the starting role if Flowers is unavailable as expected.

  • Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Full practice participant

    Flowers (hand) practiced fully Wednesday and will play in Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Flowers has a dislocated finger, but it's not holding him back in practice. He could be in line for a starting role Sunday depending on Quinton Dunbar's (knee) availability. Even if Dunbar plays, Flowers could see an increase in his snap count as the potential nickel safety since S Marquise Blair (torn ACL) is out for the year.

  • Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Shakes off injury

    Flowers (ankle) will play in Sunday's game against the Falcons after being left off of Wednesday's injury report, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. It's still unclear whether Flowers or Quinton Dunbar will start at cornerback in Week 1, and it's possible the two start out in a timeshare to begin the season. Flowers played safety at Oklahoma State but converted to cornerback when he was drafted by the Seahawks in 2018, and although there are still question marks, he's made steady improvements during his NFL career. This will be a defining season for the 25-year-old.

  • Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Large tackle count in second year

    Flowers, who posted 11 tackles over two playoff games, finished the 2019 season with 82 tackles, eight pass breakups and three interceptions over 15 reguar-season games. Flowers -- a fifth-round pick in 2018 -- converted from safety to cornerback when he arrived in the NFL, and there have been predictable growing pains. Most noticeable is that he allowed three catches for 74 yards and two scores to Davante Adams in the divisional-round loss to the Packers. Of course, it's tough to track Adams in coverage, but it signals that Flowers will likely remain as the No. 2 corner at best behind Shaquill Griffin next year, and the Seahawks could bring in competition through the draft or free agency.

  • Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Set to play Sunday

    Flowers (knee) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's divisional-round contest at Green Bay, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Flowers was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday, but that clearly was maintenance-related, as the second-year cornerback put in a full showing to wrap up the week. His production has been consistent from game to game this season, with at least five tackles in 13 of 16 appearances (including playoffs).

  • Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Limited with knee injury

    Flowers was a limited participant at Thursday's practice due to a knee injury, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Flowers was not listed on Wednesday's injury report, so it is unclear if his limited participation Thursday was due to precaution or a legitimate injury. Friday's practice session should give a better idea of Flowers' availability for Sunday's NFC divisional-round matchup against the Packers.

  • Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Nabs pick in win

    Flowers racked up five tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's win over the Browns. Flowers got the better of Baker Mayfield for his first interception of the season, nabbing one of three picks thrown by Mayfield in the game. The 24-year-old was present for all but one defensive snap in the game, and he's racked up 32 tackles in six games this campaign. He'll face Lamar Jackson and the Ravens passing attack in Week 7.

  • Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Totals eight tackles

    Flowers had eight tackles (seven solo) in Monday's 21-7 win over the Seahawks. The eight tackles ties a season high for Flowers -- which he's now accomplished three times as he continues in his starting role at cornerback. The rookie fifth-round pick is showing great potential but he is still looking for his first interception and sack, which limits any potential IDP value.

  • Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Full participant Wednesday

    Flower (hamstring) was a full participant during practice Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. After missing Week 2 against the Bears because of the hamstring issue, the 2018 fifth-round pick appears to be in a good spot to suit up against the Cowboys. Flowers started the opener against the Broncos and should do the same opposite Shaquill Griffin in Week 3.

  • Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Inactive for Week 2

    Flowers (hamstring) is inactive for Monday's game against the Bears. The 2018 fifth-round pick has been dealing with a hamstring issue that will keep him on the sidelines during his first NFL primetime experience. Flowers has impressively transitioned into the professional sphere, so it's likely that he'll resume his starting role once he's back to full health. In the meantime, Neiko Thorpe and Justin Coleman appear to be the next men up.

  • Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Eight tackles in NFL debut

    Flowers made a team-high eight tackles (seven solo) and one pass breakup in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Broncos. The rookie fifth-round pick was drafted as a safety but made the conversion to cornerback this offseason. He allowed Emmanuel Sanders to score on a 43-yard pass from Case Keenum in the second quarter, but he looked comfortable for the most part in the position. He'll face off against Mitchell Trubisky and the Bears in Week 2.
