Officially, Gettleman's plan is to release Flowers if he can't trade him by 4 p.m. Tuesday, according to sources.
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.
We're sure Flowers is hopeful as well. All the flaws critics have pointed out through the years are not going away.
Shurmur said Tuesday that Rosas' injury is improving.
In Sunday's 33-31 heartbreaking loss to the Carolina Panthers, Wheeler earned the fifth-highest grade on offense from Pro Football Focus for his play.
Flowers started 48 regular-season games and one post-season game in three-plus seasons.
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. With Solder at left tackle, the Giants had Flowers move to right tackle, which is where he was playing until he was benched prior to Week 3. It's just that after four uneven years in NY, he's already gone.
In fact, the Giants would take him ninth overall in 2015.
Hard to believe they've waited this long to pull the trigger on this, but made a decision to end Eli Manning's start streak previous year in favor of Geno Smith, right? After all, Flowers is a former first-round pick.
Giants still hoping to complete a trade for OT Ereck Flowers by 4 pm today.
