UPDATE: The Redskins offered up to $8 million per year to Flowers
Redskins made a legit offer to keep Ereck Flowers. Offered up to $8 million per season. Wouldn’t go to $10M though— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) March 16, 2020
Ereck Flowers has left the building. The Redskins signed him as a $4 million project to convert to guard last year, and the experiment succeeded. Now Flowers will take his new lease on life to Miami to sign a 3-year, $30 million deal with the Dolphins.
Ron Rivera and the Redskins were interested in bringing Flowers back to play left guard again this season. They just placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Brandon Scherff, and wanted to shore up the other side with Flowers. Now the team will likely look to Wes Martin who got 5 starts last year in place of an injured Scherff.
That'll likely put a 4th round 2021 compensatory pick on the board to the Redskins. https://t.co/dp08aAO6bD— Nick Korte (@nickkorte) March 16, 2020
On the phone with Ereck Flowers now on agreeing to terms with the #Dolphins: "I'm excited to go to Miami. That is where I am from. I always wanted to be home. That’s why I stayed home in college. NY for me was just a learning experience. Everything after that has been great."— ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) March 16, 2020
