New York Giants tried to trade Ereck Flowers during the draft

Of course, Flowers has a chance to start fresh as new coach Pat Shurmur takes over, but he skipped voluntary workouts, as he has been on the trade block. He has trained in his native Florida instead. The last thing the Giants need this season is a malcontent to make life more hard under new coach Pat Shurmur.

Flowers was the ninth selection in the 2015 National Football League draft.

The Giants selected one offensive lineman in the draft: guard Will Hernandez in the second round. "He's good against the run, he's kind of a little bit sneaky getting his pass rush, so we'll get a little pass rush out of him as well". "He has the ability to make decisions on his own. If you want to know why he's not here, call him". He was a very, very productive guy."In his self-scout, Hill said, "I think I bring a smart player and a physical (player) who loves to compete with the best of the best."McIntosh played defensive end earlier in his college career and can play either three-technique tackle in a four-man front or five-technique end in a three-man front next to outside linebackers". "There's enough on tape-things didn't go very well last year for the Giants, but he played through the year and there's enough on tape for me to see there's talent there". If the Giants do find a taker for Flowers at this point, they'll be lucky to get any sort of meaningful asset in return.

Less than a week after the NFL Draft, Bovada has Barkley listed as the favorite to win the 2018 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award. For now, and likely depending on how he plays at right tackle this summer, he's still on the Giants' roster and part of their future.

Still, since he's guaranteed $2.4 million this season and the team was unable to move him, Flowers will likely be on the team in 2018. He's now set to count $4.6 million against the salary cap.
