Giants waive OT Flowers, 2015 first-round pick

Offensive tackle Ereck Flowers, the ninth overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, was waived by the New York Giants on Tuesday.Offensive tackle Brian Mihalik was signed off the practice squad to replace Flowers on the roster.Flowers was selected in 2015 to play right tackle, but moved to left tackle after Will Beatty tore a pectoral muscle during offseason workouts. Flowers started the first 49 regular-season and postseason games for which he had been active (missed two games due to injury). He moved back to right tackle in March after the Giants signed left tackle Nate Solder to a then-record contract in free agency.After two starts in 2018, Flowers was benched in favor of Chad Wheeler. In last week’s game at Carolina, Flowers played only 12 snaps, all on special teams.
