"If no trade, Flowers' agent Drew Rosenhaus expects multiple teams to be interested in his client and for Flowers to have a new home by the end of this week", he reports. "Sometimes a change of scenery is good for a person, and we're just hopeful he can go out and continue to have a good career". "He's worked his tail off and fought through a lot of adversity. I hate to lose a teammate".
The Giants don't have another player at the position now on the roster, but they have three tackles on the practice squad: former seventh-round picks Brian Mihalik (Eagles, 2015) and Jylan Ware (Raiders, 2017), as well as Victor Salako, a 2017 undrafted free agent who has yet to appear in an National Football League game.
The Giants had hoped to find a trade partner, but that was always unlikely because they would have been responsible for the $1.69 million he was owed the rest of the season.More news: Cuba and Mexico issue alerts as tropical storm inches closer

The Ereck Flowers experiment is coming to a long-awaited end in the Big Apple. In contrast, he turned out to be quite the opposite - a liability and the face of numerous Giants' offensive line failures.
Flowers was replaced with Chad Wheeler on the offensive line after being given a chance to prove himself at right tackle this season. With Flowers' release, Landon Collins is now the last of the Giants' 2015 draft picks still on the roster.
Flowers was switched from left tackle to right this past offseason after the Giants declined his fifth-year option and signed former New England Patriots lineman Nate Solder to be their new left tackle.
