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

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 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 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.

Giants' Ereck Flowers: Being shopped by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (groin) has been the subject of pre-draft trade discussions, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Flowers, the ninth overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, has started 47 of 49 possible games in his professional career. Despite consistently avoiding injury, Flowers has not lived up to the expectations set by his high draft pedigree, and the New York offensive line struggled mightily in 2017. A fresh start for both sides could make sense: The Giants signed left tackle Nate Solder to the largest offensive line contract in the NFL this offseason, while Flowers has yet to make an appearance at the team's voluntary workout program. The Giants could look to move Flowers for capital in the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft and bring in a rookie prospect to protect veteran quarterback Eli Manning.

Giants' Ereck Flowers: No-show at voluntary workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (groin) did not report to the first day of voluntary workouts Monday, John Healy of the New York Daily News reports.

Flowers was the only player on the roster to not show up. The reasoning for his absence wasn't stated, putting into question whether he's still rehabbing the groin injury that prevented him from playing in the 2017 season finale.

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

Flowers (groin) is inactive for Sunday's season finale against the Redskins.

Flowers was questionable entering Sunday's game after being limited due to his groin throughout the week. Look for Chad Wheeler to see the start at left tackle in place of Flowers.

Giants' Ereck Flowers: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (groin) was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

If Flowers is unable to play Sunday, expect Chad Wheeler to fill in at left tackle.

Giants LT Ereck Flowers is trying to get ready for Week 2
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

Giants left tackle Ereck Flowers, who hurt his ankle Sunday against the Cowboys, was able to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday. Although, his availability for Week 2 against the Falcons is still to be determined.

"It was just like any other injury," Flowers said, per "You've got to play through it and get through it.

"I guess we'll see. In my head, I'm looking to play."

With Will Beatty on the PUP list, John Jerry would likely be tasked with protecting quarterback Eli Manning's blindside Sunday, if Flowers can't play.

Giants OT Ereck Flowers dealing with ankle issue
by Sean D'Oliveira | CBS Sports Staff

Giants offensive tackle Ereck Flowers suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys and will undergo tests to determine the severity of the issue, reports

"They're doing the usual number of MRIs, etc., etc.," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Monday. "He did injure the ankle early on, and he gutted it out and finished the game. But [Monday] is a different day. He was limited to a certain extent because of the injury, but I thought he battled away, and that's what we always counted on -- that he would battle. And he did."
