"We appreciate Ereck Flowers' efforts with the team. I hate to lose a teammate".
Flowers' pending release/trade is a step in the right direction in terms of correcting the issues along the Giants' offensive line, but the immediate future isn't much brighter.
But the 6-6, 334-pounder never developed the proper technique to consistently protect Eli Manning, hampering the Giant offense.
New York's decision not only to retain Flowers in 2018, but to keep him as a starter, surprised many.
But he wasn't - unfortunately his play reinforced he was part of the problem, and that was evident from the first offensive play of the season when he was reduced to trying to trip Jaguars star defensive end Calais Campbell after being beaten badly to the inside.

The Giants made Ereck Flowers the No. 9 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, but entering this season, he had not lived up to expectations in NY.
Flowers struggled from the start of his career after an unexpected move to left tackle his rookie season prompted by an injury to Will Beatty.
Within two weeks Gettleman knew he had made a huge mistake.
Flowers started the first two games this season at right tackle for the Giants after three seasons as their left tackle but was benched in favor of Chad Wheeler in Week 3. They played Spencer Pulley over Flowers as an extra tackle in Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints. In Sunday's loss to the Carolina Panthers, he played just five snaps, all on special teams, in a 33-31 defeat.
