Football Team's Ereck Flowers: Dealt to Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins traded Flowers to the Football Team on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Flowers signed a three-year, $30 million contract last offseason and ended up starting 14 games for the Dolphins. He was a bust at left tackle after being a top-10 pick in the 2015 draft, but he's revived his career at left guard, turning into a 16-game starter for Washington in 2019. He might be the top interior backup, rather than the starting left guard, in his second stint with the Washington Football Team.

Dolphins' Ereck Flowers: Deemed questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game versus the Raiders, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

With Solomon Kindley (knee) ruled out, Flowers' status in Week 16 is even more important. Adam Pankey and Michael Deiter are both candidates to slot in at left guard if Flowers can't go.

Dolphins' Ereck Flowers: Ruled out Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (ankle) won't suit up in Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Flowers suffered the ankle injury in Week 13 against the Bengals and he'll miss his second straight game. With Flowers sidelined again, expect Solomon Kindley to handle the left guard position, with Jesse Davis assuming the right guard role for Sunday's contest.

Dolphins' Ereck Flowers: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Flowers put forth a trio of limited practices this week, so it would appear that he has at least a fair chance to retake the field. The starting left guard missed last weekend's loss to the Chiefs due to his ankle issue.

Dolphins' Ereck Flowers: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Flowers' absence could prove difficult for the Dolphins to overcome in a tough matchup against the Chiefs, given that the team had real difficulty providing consistent pass protection even with every starter healthy. To make matters worse, fellow starting guard Solomon Kindley (foot) has also been managing an injury of his own.

Dolphins' Ereck Flowers: Sustains ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers left Sunday's game against Cincinnati with an ankle injury.

The 26-year-old limped off the field but was eventually carted to the locker room to be evaluated. Solomon Kindley moves to left guard while Jesse Davis takes over at right guard while Flowers is unavailable.

Dolphins' Ereck Flowers: Taken off COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins activated Flowers (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Flowers either tested positive or was in close contact with someone who did. Either way, he's eligible to return to team facilities and start preparing for the 2020 season. The 26-year-old will aim to lock down the starting left guard position in training camp.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The move indicates that Flowers either tested positive or has been in close contact with someone who did. The Dolphins are relying on him to secure the left guard position for the upcoming campaign.

Redskins' Ereck Flowers: Heading to South Beach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers is signing a three-year, $30 million contract with the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The oft-ridiculed first-round bust never lived up to expectations as a blindside protector with the Giants, but he was solid as a 16-game starter at left guard in Washington last season. The Dolphins are handing over $19.95 million guaranteed to fill one of the many openings on their leaky line.

Redskins' Ereck Flowers: Lands in Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Redskins on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Selected at No. 9 overall in the 2015 draft, Flowers was waived by the Giants last season before briefly landing in Jacksonville. He now will rejoin former Giants teammate Landon Collins in Washington and most likely serve in a reserve role in 2019.

Jaguars' Ereck Flowers: Clear of knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Flowers suffered the knee injury last Sunday against the Colts but was able to practice fully Friday to avoid an injury tag. The 25-year-old is primed to step into the starting spot at left tackle with Josh Walker (ankle/foot) doubtful for Sunday.

Jaguars' Ereck Flowers: Exits game with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Colts due to a knee injury, Tad Dickman of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Flowers exited Sunday's tilt against the Colts during the second half. With center Brandon Linder (knee) also questionable to return, the Jaguars could remain without two starting offensive linemen for the remainder of the Week 10 contest.

Jaguars' Ereck Flowers: Signs with Jags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers signed a contract with the Jaguars on Friday.

Flowers cleared waivers earlier this week after being waived by the Giants. The 2015 first-round pick could find himself in a starting role relatively soon with starting left tackle Josh Wells (groin) placed on injured reserve, but Josh Walker is likely to fill in while Flowers gets his bearings with his new team.

Ereck Flowers: Clears waives, becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers cleared waivers on Wednesday making him a free agent, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports.

Flowers reportedly has several teams expressing interest in his services. The embattled lineman is expected to make trips to a few suitors before finding a new home. From the looks of it, Flowers will be suiting up for a new team in 2018, but which team remains to be seen.

Ereck Flowers: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants waived Flowers on Tuesday, Michael Elsen of the Giants' official site reports.

Though the Giants attempted to trade Flowers, the team found no suitors and were forced to waive their former first-round pick on Tuesday. Flowers was selected with the ninth overall pick in the 2015 draft, but he repeatedly struggled in pass protection. He ultimately lost his starting job to Chad Wheeler this season, and played just 12 snaps over his final three games. It remains to be seen if the Giants are interested in signing him to their practice squad if he makes it through waivers.

Giants' Ereck Flowers: Set to part ways with New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants intend to release or trade Flowers before 4 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, Matt Lombardo of NJ.com reports.

After being selected with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Flowers never developed into the linchpin along the offensive line the Giants had envisioned. The Giants installed Flowers as their starting left tackle immediately as a rookie, but the 24-year-old struggled to protect Eli Manning's blind side during his three seasons on the job. He was moved to right tackle ahead of the current campaign but lasted just two games with the first-team offense before forfeiting his job to Chad Wheeler. With Flowers owed $1.69 million over the rest of the season and having yet to show that he's a starting-caliber NFL lineman, it seems rather unlikely that the Giants will be able to orchestrate a trade.

Giants' Ereck Flowers: Won't start versus Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers won't start at right tackle for Sunday's game against the Texans, Pat Leonard of New York Daily News reports.

The 2015 first-round pick will be replaced by second-year undrafted pro Chad Wheeler. Change was needed on the Giants' offensive front since quarterback Eli Manning was constantly under siege. According to Pro Football Focus, Flowers allowed 11 pressures over the first two games while no other Giants lineman yielded more than five.

Giants' Ereck Flowers: Starts at right tackle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (groin) started at right tackle in Friday's preseason win over the Lions.

Flowers was on the field for 26 offensive snaps in his return from an injury, so he should be considered back at full strength moving forward.

Giants' Ereck Flowers: Won't have fifth-year option exercised
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants declined Flowers' (groin) fifth-year option for 2019 on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Flowers has struggled since entering the league in 2015 and is being shopped by the Giants in potential trades, so it isn't a surprise that New York isn't keen on committing $12.5 million to the tackle in 2019. Whether or not Flowers is with the team for the start of the 2018 campaign has yet to be determined.
