Ereck Flowers release generates strong reactions from Giants fans

Report: Giants place OT Flowers on trade block, may cut Reports: Giants To Release Or Trade Ereck Flowers By Tuesday

In his first three seasons, Flowers started at left tackle in each of the 46 games he appeared in. During that span, the Giants' offensive line struggled often and Flowers was a big reason why. The Giants moved him to right tackle this offseason, and he started the first two games this year before they discontinued the experiment.

We're sure Flowers is hopeful as well.

In four years with the team, he failed to post a Pro Football Focus grade above 70 in any season. He suffered a hand injury in the game and at one point was listed as questionable to return, prompting the sight of Flowers, helmet in hand, with the rest of the starters.

The Giants like Wheeler a lot, though. With Flowers' release, Landon Collins is now the last of the Giants' 2015 draft picks still on the roster.

The Giants' new regime did the right thing by Flowers for months.

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 have decided they're done.

That never happened, and Flowers' departure represents one of the worst draft decisions by the previous regime led by former GM Jerry Reese and draft czar Marc Ross, both of whom were fired, the latter by Gettleman just days after his introduction as GM.

A team trading for Flowers would have to pay the balance of his $2.4 million base salary this season, which for the 12 weeks remaining in the season works out to about $1.7 million.
