The Ereck Flowers-New York Giants saga took an interesting turn on Tuesday with the news that Flowers has hired super-agent Drew Rosenhaus to represent him.
Does this mean Flowers is going to try to push his way out of New York? Does it mean he feels like he’s been getting bad advice and wants Rosenhaus to try and repair his seemingly damaged relationship with the Giants? Don’t know, but it certainly has to mean something.
Rosenhaus had this to say, via the New York Post:
“Really the only comment is I have a good relationship with the organization and I will be speaking with them soon about Ereck,’’ Rosenhaus told The Post in an email.
After three less than satisfactory seasons, the 2015 first-round pick’s status with the Giants has changed. The general manager who drafted him and continued to provide him opportunities at left tackle, Jerry Reese, is gone. Flowers has been replaced at that spot by Nate Solder, and told that he would compete for the right tackle job.
Flowers was the only Giant who did not attend the first day of voluntary workouts last month, and remains the only player who has not shown up at all. The Giants attempted to trade him during the 2018 NFL Draft, but could not find any satisfactory offers.
Where do things go from here? Maybe only Rosenhaus and Flowers know for sure.
