Eli Apple isn’t the only former first-round pick who hasn’t panned out recently for the Giants.
Offensive tackle Ereck Flowers may be an even bigger disappointment. The ninth overall pick in the 2015 draft, Flowers has made 46 starts over three seasons in New York. But as Jordan Raanan reported for ESPN.com, Flowers’ effort level drew criticism last year cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale . The Giants have already passed on Flowers’ option for 2019, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, and after they signed Nate Solder in the offseason, Flowers is expected to flip to right tackle this year.
That didn’t sit well with Flowers, who is skipping offseason workouts.

Like several of the players on this list, Flowers was shopped by the Giants during the 2018 draft (per Raanan) with no success.

There are more than a few NFL teams who could use help at tackle, and the Arizona Cardinals are near the top of the list. Arizona picked up the fifth-year option on youngster D.J. Humphries, but Humphries played in just five games last year thanks to two knee injuries and has missed 30 of a possible 48 games in the NFL.
The Cardinals have more than a little cheese invested in quarterback Sam Bradford and just as much draft capital invested in rookie Josh Rosen.nike nfl jerseys cheap china
Keeping them upright is probably a good idea. At this point, a Day 3 pick in 2019 is likely all it would take to make a deal happen.
