The New York Giants have released offensive lineman Ereck Flowers. The team said on Monday that he would be either released or traded by 4 pm on Tuesday.
Instead of waiting until 4 pm, the Giants released him Tuesday morning. He has been placed on waivers.
In a corresponding move, the team has signed tackle Brian Mihalik. He was on the team’s practice squad.
He will be suited up for the Giants on Thursday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles. The game is played at MetLife Stadium.
With the opening on the practice squad, the team signed kicker Marshall Koehn.
Flowers was the Giants ninth overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-6, 329 pounder was criticized this season for his horrendous play and even lost his starting job to Chad Wheeler prior to the team’s game with the Houston Texans on September 23rd.
He started the first two games. This season after the team signed Nate Solder, Flowers was moved from left tackle to right tackle by the new Giants coaching staff led by Pat Shurmur.
He has played a total of just 12 snaps over the last three games. Each one of those snaps saw Flowers in on special teams, blocking for field goals or extra points.
Mihalik — who was drafted by the Eagles with the 237th overall pick in the seventh-round in the 2015 NFL Draft — played in 15 games with Detroit last season. He made two starts for the Lions, starting at left tackle on October 29th against the Pittsburgh Steelers and November 6th against the Green Bay Packers.
