Redskins Sign Ereck Flowers to One year, Four Million Dollar Deal
The Washington Redskins have signed former first round pick to a one year, four-million dollar deal, according to Adam Schefter . Flowers, who has played tackle in the past, will reportedly play guard for the Redskins. The Redskins have been busy signing wide receiver Brian Quick earlier today.
After being drafted by the New York Giants in 2015, Flowers has struggled at tackle, being cut by the team in October. He then signed a one year contract to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
After his playing days ended at the University of Miami, the Giants used a valuable number nine draft pick on Flowers, envisioning him anchoring the line for years to come. Those plans didn’t play out, however, giving up 169 pressures in his time in the league, the most of any tackle in the NFL. Flowers will be the third former Giant that the Redskins have signed this off-season.
