The Redskins have begun contract talks with left guard Ereck Flowers in advance of NFL free agency, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
When Trent Williams failed to appear at training camp, Flowers – thrust back into the position – seemed doomed to repeat past failures as a tackle. But the Redskins would eventually sign Donald Penn, allowing Flowers to switch back to guard, opposite of Brandon Scherff. Now it appears the Redskins liked what they saw in Flowers at his new position.
Re-signing Scherff and Flowers would leave new head coach Ron Rivera with one less headache to deal with as the draft approaches.
