The Commanders have released offensive lineman Ereck Flowers, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus.
Flowers came to Washington last year via trade with the Dolphins. It was effectively a cap dump for the ‘Fins, as the deal was completed with a simple swap of late-round picks. For Flowers, it was a reunion and an opportunity to reprise some of his best career work in 2019. Playing as Washington’s left guard, Flowers excelled and parlayed his strong showing into a three-year, $30MM contract with Miami.
He played college football at the University of Miami and was drafted ninth overall by the New York Giants in the 2015 NFL Draft. He has also played for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins. Flowers played offensive tackle at the University of Miami and in the early part of his NFL career prior to switching to guard in 2019.
