Ereck Flowers, Dolphins Agree To 3-Year, $30 Million Deal

After a one-year stint with the Washington Redskins, Offensive Lineman Ereck Flowers has agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal with the Miami Dolphins. Flowers’ deal includes $19.95 million fully guaranteed.

Flowers, 25, moved positions last season with Washington, switching his tackle position to become a left guard.

This switch adjusted his career, starting every game in the 2019 season despite having had a below average 2018 campaign.

The New York Giants released Flowers in 18′ after failing to find a trade suitor. Doug Marrone and his Jacksonville Jaguars squad claimed the 5 year pro, starting in seven of eight games with them.

Switching to left guard brought his career back to life, allowing just 4 sucks in 885 snaps and having 5 penalties.

Although Flowers did not make the Pro-Bowl, his impressive season was enough to earn him a long-term deal with the Miami Dolphins.

In an interview with ESPN’s Josina Anderson, Ereck Flowers said, “I’m excited to go to Miami. That is where I am from. I always wanted to be home. That’s why I stayed home in college. NY for me was just a learning experience. Everything after that has been great.”

Flowers will likely be an immediate starter with Miami, filling a much-needed spot for the Dolphins after being tied for most sacks allowed in 2019 with 58.

The Dolphins will continue to search for more additions to their O-Line, considering having $90 million in cap space to spend to adjust their roster.
