Ereck Flowers looking forward to ‘great opportunity’ to work with Bill Callahan

Ereck Flowers

New Washington Redskins offensive lineman Ereck Flowers was previously a first round NFL Draft pick that had unlimited potential. However, after unsuccessful stints with both the Jacksonville Jaguars and rival New York Giants, it appears as though Flowers is ready to break out as a member of the Redskins — a team that may have plans of switching the longtime tackle to guard ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

Flowers’ decision to sign with the Redskins was based largely by the presence of Washington offensive line coach Bill Callahan.

“I think you learn about what type of environment you want to be in, as far as a place that fits you,” Flowers recently said, via the team’s official website. “I think I went to Jacksonville and fit there very well, and you just look for teams in places where it is going to bring the best out of me. I think this is a place that is going to bring the best out of me.”

Despite the fact that Washington is currently in the midst of a bit of a rebuild, so it Flowers quite frankly, which could make this a match made in heaven.

“When you talk to him he’s just so knowledgeable,” Flowers of Callahan, via the team’s official website. “Certain stuff you watch on film, or when he talks about certain things. I was just talking to him now, and there are things that I’ve never really heard, and its like ‘wow.’ You know he’s a great coach, you look at his body of work and I think it’s a great opportunity.”

The Redskins failed to reach the postseason in 2018-19 while a similar outcome remains likely in 2019-20.
