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

NY has FINALLY realized that, and the former Miami Hurricane will reportedly be released on Tuesday if he's not traded by 4 p.m. ET.

Dave Gettleman, who mistakenly retained Flowers as a Week 1 starter this offseason, cut bait on Monday.

Flowers' pending release/trade is a step in the right direction in terms of correcting the issues along the Giants' offensive line, but the immediate future isn't much brighter.

The Giants will return to action on Thursday night in a divisional showdown against the Philadelphia Eagle at home (8:20 p.m. ET, Fox/NFL Network/Amazon Prime). "Even these last weeks, when you're told someone else is playing, he's done everything we've asked him to do". With Solder at left tackle, the Giants had Flowers move to right tackle, which is where he was playing until he was benched prior to Week 3. He struggled mightily to live up to the high expectations of his draft slot, leaving the team still desperate for a franchise tackle just a few years later.

Eagles running back Jay Ajayi has torn ACL
Corey Clement hasn't played in the last two because of a quadriceps injury. "We have to take a real hard look in the mirror". After the Eagles loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Ajayi questioned why the team isn't running the ball more.

After being drafted with the 9th pick out of Miami the expectations were high, and he was never able to live up to those in NY.

The Giants are paying Flowers a contract worth $4.579 million for this season, the final year of his rookie deal after the team declined a fifth-year option worth $12.525 million. Obviously there are things I want to improve this week.

The Giants like Wheeler a lot, though. Watt but has given them physicality in the run game and more reliability from down-to-down.

He did not, and so now he is part of the Giants' future, while Flowers is officially - finally - in the past.
