OT - WAS
The Dolphins traded OT Ereck Flowers and a late-round draft pick to the Washington Football Team in exchange for a late-round draft pick.
Flowers previously played for Washington in 2019. He signed a three-year, $30 million contract with the Dolphins last season. By moving Flowers, the Dolphins saved $9 million in cap space. He missed a few games in 2020 due to an ankle injury. Flowers will compete for a starting guard spot and his presence should only improve Washington’s offensive line.
The Dolphins placed OL Ereck Flowers on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Flowers was brought in this offseason to boost Miami's run blocking abilities. He still has a chance to be cleared for Week 1. The Dolphins open the 2020 season with a visit to the New England Patriots.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Giants are benching RT Ereck Flowers for Week 3.
A long time coming, the Giants are electing to bench Flowers, who they converted to right tackle after a failed attempt on the left side for most of his three-year career. In lieu of Flowers, the Giants will start second-year UDFA Chad Wheeler. Something had to give and it finally has. Perhaps there is nowhere else left for the Giants offensive line now to go but up.
