New York Giants offensive tackle Ereck Flowers reportedly shoved a reporter in the locker room Sunday night following the team’s 23-16 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

The reporter was apparently Jordan Ranaan of ESPN. Here is the exchange as reported by Dan Duggan of NJ Advance Media:

Here's the entire 10-second exchange, which ended when Flowers gave Raanan a shove with his left hand that sent the reporter back a few steps.

Flowers: "Hey, get out my face man. Don't come over here."

When Raanan didn't move, Flowers moved his face close to the reporter's and asked, "You hear me?"

Raanan: "I'm just trying to do my job."

Flowers: "Go over there."

Raanan: "I'm just trying to do my job."

Flowers: "Get the (expletive) out of my face, bro.

Raanan: "I'm just trying to do my job."

Flowers then said, "Go over there, man," as he shoved Raanan.

Flowers, the team’s first-round pick in 2015, has always had a somewhat contentious relationship with the press. It’s known that he would rather not talk to the media at all if he can avoid it.

Flowers had a difficult game Sunday night as quarterback Eli Manning was sacked three times and harassed most of the night.
