Giants expected to part ways with OT Ereck Flowers, report says

Flowers, 24, Jerry Reese's ninth overall pick in 2015 out of Miami, played in 51 games and started 48 of them across four seasons, mostly at left tackle.

The Giants did not pick up Flowers' fifth-year option, so his rookie contract expires after this season and he will be a free agent in March.

Flowers appeared in 51 games over his four seasons in NY. It was a struggle.

National Football League insider Adam Schefter reported on Monday that the Giants were going to release Flowers if they couldn't trade him by today's deadline. Any team trading for him would owe about $1.7 million over the rest of the season.

"I think it's just kind of run its course", Shurmur told ESPN on Monday.

The hurricane damaged hospitals and nursing homes in the Panama City area, and officials worked to evacuate hundreds of patients. The fatalities included Sarah Radney, an 11-year-old girl in Seminole County, Georgia, and a man in Greensboro, Florida.

"We appreciate Ereck Flowers' efforts with the team. Sometimes a change of scenery is good for a person". The Giants attempted to move him to right tackle this season, but it didn't work.

With an open spot on their practice squad as the result of this shuffle, the Giants also announced that kicker Marshall Koehn, who was with the team during the preseason, had been signed as insurance for Aldrick Rosas, who missed practice on Monday with a sore quadriceps. He stayed there until two poor performances to start the season.

Following a Week 2 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Flowers was benched in favor of Chad Wheeler, who hasn't provided an enormous upgrade.
