The Redskins have just received help on the line of attack. He's a 24-year-old, 6'6 "tall.
The former first choice of the Giants, Ereck Flowers, has signed a one year contract, amounting to $ 4 million, to join the Washington Redskins.

Speculation about how the Redskins would use it if it was signed caused a stir since sources announced for the first time that the flowers would come to Washington for a meeting with the team last night. Many, including myself, had felt that his best position would be the left guard because of his heavy feet on the edge.
ESPN's John Keim confirms that the team plans to use Flowers at the guardhouse, but could also consider him a tackle while second-year player Geron Christian was recovering from an injury.
The Redskins have signed Ereck Flowers, a former first-round pick and starting lineman, but plan to use it as a goaltender. The flowers, who visited the site Monday, will also be used during the tackle, while Geron Christian is recovering from a second year of the death of a ripped MCL.

Flowers, who was the ninth pick in the 2015 NFL Draft at the University of Miami, started 46 games with the Giants in his first three seasons. His choice for the fifth year was not retained by the team until 2018 and he was finally removed from the list on October 8, as the team could not find a business partner. He was signed four days later by the Jaguars and finished the season as the team's left tackle.
What do you think of Redskins signing flowers?
As a guard, I like it
He is a bust, and will not do better here
I will reserve my judgment until I see the product in the field
