Source: Redskins sign OT Flowers to 1-year deal

The Washington Redskins have signed offensive tackle Ereck Flowers to a one-year, $4 million deal, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Flowers, 24, was the ninth overall pick in 2015 by the New York Giants but never played at the high level expected of a top-10 pick.

He started 49 of the 52 games in which he played for the Giants from 2015-18 at left tackle but lost his starting job last season in Week 3 to Chad Wheeler, who signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2017.

The Giants cut him on Oct. 10 and the Jaguars signed him two days later to a one-year contract worth $705,000. A rash of injuries along the offensive line forced him into the starting lineup and he ended up starting the final seven games of the season.
