Giants' rookie Ereck Flowers negotiating his own contract
There were 32 players selected in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, and New York Giants first-rounder Ereck Flowers is the only one of them who didn't hire an agent. Flowers has opted to negotiate his rookie contract by himself with limited help from his father and his lawyer. Although he hasn't come to an agreement yet, Flowers noted that negotiations are going well. When Flowers does finally sign the dotted line, he will be about $432,000 richer for not having hired an agent.
When Flowers is unsure of something discussed during the negotiations, he feels comfortable with the team he has in place.
"I have people I talk to," Flowers said, per True Jersey.
Flowers hopes to get a deal done "soon", but he's not going to rush through the process.
"I'd rather get it done soon," Flowers said. "But as long as it takes. Whatever it takes."
The Giants are certainly hoping that a deal gets done soon. They are counting on big things from their rookie offensive tackle in 2015. Throughout OTA practices, Flowers has lined up exclusively as the starting left tackle.
