Redskins Sign Offensive Lineman Ereck Flowers to a One-Year Deal

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Buffalo Bills Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The Redskins just received some help on the offensive line, and it comes in the form of a 6’6” 335 pound 24 year old player.

Former Giants first round pick Ereck Flowers has signed a one-year, $4 million dollar contract to join the Washington Redskins.

Speculation to how the Redskins would use him if he was signed has been brewing since sources first broke the news that Flowers would be coming to DC for a meeting with the team last evening. Many, including myself, had opined that his best position would be at left guard due to his heavy feet on the edge.

ESPN’s John Keim confirms that the team does indeed plan to use Flowers at guard, but could also consider him at tackle while second year player Geron Christian recovers from injury.

Flowers, who was the ninth overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft out of the University of Miami, started 46 games for the Giants over his first three seasons. His fifth year option was not picked up by the team heading into 2018, and he was eventually cut from the roster on October 8th after the team couldn't find a trading partner. He was signed four days later by the Jaguars, and finished the season as the team’s starting left tackle.
