Those specific New York Giants players who discuss teammates publicly shall feel the wrath of the team’s brand new head coach.
Pat Shurmur made mention of the idea at rookie minicamp this weekend, as noted by John Healy of the New York Daily News. He doesn’t want any of his players openly discussing the situation of teammates.
“That’s not for Landon to talk about,” Shurmur said. “I don’t think our players should be talking about another players’ situation.”
“We’ve been in contact with Ereck. I heard he’s in good shape,” Shurmur said. “I can’t wait for him to be here. Like I said, there were some things he did last year that were really good. I look forward to him being here at some point and working with him.”
Ereck Flowers, 24, has been nothing but a bitter disappointment in Northern New Jersey. Drafted in the first round of the 2015 prospect pool, Flowers has represented the left anchor for one of the worst offensive lines in football.
Since new general manager signed left tackle and former New England Patriots Super Bowl champion, Nate Solder, Flowers has voiced his displeasure—wondering why his employer would do such a thing.
Safety Landon Collins has never been shy to speak up about his teammates, including Flowers. Perhaps the next time he does, he’ll feel the wrath of his coach as this statement is the absolute warning heading into the summer.
