Ereck Flowers Hires Drew Rosenhaus After 3 Years Of No Agent

Former University of Miami offensive tackle Ereck Flowers has hired Drew Rosenhaus has his agent. Flowers was previously unrepresented.

The offensive tackle for the New York Giants was drafted ninth overall in 2015. He went into that year’s draft unrepresented. Soon after being picked, Pro Football Talk’s Michael David Smith commented that, “it’s a little surprising that more rookies don’t forego hiring an agent. The players’ union can look over a contract to make sure it complies with the CBA, at no expense to the player. And a player can hire a lawyer to read his contract at an hourly rate (as Flowers has done) and make sure everything looks OK .”

Lamar Jackson was the most notable player in the 2018 NFL Draft to go the route of not hiring an agent.

A few year later; however, and Flowers felt it was wise to pay an agent a commission for some much needed assistance. He is in the middle of a rookie deal as well as some drama conncerning his absence from Giants voluntary workouts.

Rosenhaus says he will soon be speaking with the Giants about his new client’s situation.
