Giants may be stuck with Ereck Flowers

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

"If you want to know why he's not here, call him".

It has become a jumbled situation that was only further emphasized after the team made a decision to ink former New England Patriots left tackle Nate Solder to a deal via free agency this offseason. Flowers did not report to the Giants' pre-draft offseason workouts and the team is not expected to pick up his fifth-year option for 2019.

With Solder now at left tackle, the Giants plan was to move Flowers to right tackle in hopes that the transition could benefit him since most elite pass rushers are lined up on the other side of the line. Head coach Pat Shurmur said he wanted all Giants players to participate in the offseason workout program. The Giants also selected an offensive lineman in the draft, UTEP's Will Hernandez, in the second round.

Apparently the only people in the National Football League surprised at this news is the front office of the Giants. He has trained in his native Florida instead. He was a very, very productive guy."In his self-scout, Hill said, "I think I bring a smart player and a physical (player) who loves to compete with the best of the best."McIntosh played defensive end earlier in his college career and can play either three-technique tackle in a four-man front or five-technique end in a three-man front next to outside linebackers". With just over $9.6 million remaining in cap space, according to spotrac.com, it may be hard for the New York Giants to add an impact player at all three positions of need.

Saquon Barkley has yet to practice with the New York Giants, but that hasn't stopped one offshore sports betting website from offering up odds on how his rookie year will go. His future with the team may very well depend on how he performs during the summer.

Flowers, 24, is guaranteed $2.4 million in 2018 and will count $4.6 million against the Giants' salary cap. Please like and follow on Facebook and Twitter.
