The Giants shopped Ereck Flowers during the draft but found no takers, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports. The asking price of a mid-round draft pick was “too steep” for at least one team, Raanan adds.
Flowers, who is guaranteed $2.4 million this season, leaves the Giants with a decision to make on his future.
He has not endeared himself to the new coaching staff by skipping the team’s voluntary offseason workout program, remaining home in South Florida to train. The Giants wanted him to compete for the right tackle job after they signed Nate Solder to a record deal to play left tackle.
Michel is obviously staying put, and receiving ability could keep both White and Burkhead on the roster. Bolden has special teams value, and the Patriots like keeping a fullback like Develin around. Both Gillislee and Hill are prime cut candidates, and Gillislee has performed better between the two in recent years.
Gillislee averaged 5.7 yards per carry in both 2015 and 2016. Hill hasn’t topped four yards per carry since his rookie season in 2014.
Roethlisberger, 36, recently claimed he’d like to play another three to five years and has said he’d refer Rudolph to the playbook if the rookie sought assistance.
Rudolph threw 86 TDs over his last three seasons at Oklahoma State.
Attorneys for free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick deposed Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider over the past two days as part of Kaepernick’s ongoing collusion grievance against the NFL, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Thursday.
Speaking to reporters, Carroll didn’t definitively rule out the possibility of the Seahawks signing Kaepernick, per the News Tribune’s Gregg Bell.
Kaepernick filed his grievance last October, alleging team owners are conspiring to keep him out of the league as a result of his protests and social advocacy.
The Yankees challenged and the call was flipped when it was shown catcher Gary Sanchez nipped the back of the jersey of Olson, who tried a hook slide. If Olson used his feet to slide, he would have been safe. That let the Yankees get to the bottom of the ninth.
