Flowers is currently being shopped by the Giants in potential trades and the two sides appear ready to separate, so this latest news isn't anything surprising. The ninth overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft would have been set to make $12.5 million in 2019, making it an easy decision for New York. Whether or not Flowers is with the team for the start of the 2018 campaign is yet to be determined, so it's simply a situation to monitor for now. Flowers has started 47 of 49 games so far in his career.
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 Flower for capital in the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft, and bring in a rookie prospect to protect veteran quarterback Eli Manning.
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.
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.
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.
