Dave Gettleman said he learned a lesson a long time ago from former Giants GM Ernie Accorsi: "Don't quit on talent." Too often, teams are too quick to give up on young players with ability just because they're slow to develop.
That's as good an explanation as any for why the Giants are moving Ereck Flowers to right tackle, now that they've signed Nate Solder to replace him on the left side. Flowers was once the ninth overall pick in the NFL draft. He's still only 23 years old. He was a bust at left tackle, but Gettleman wants to give him every possible chance to show the talent he has before the Giants let him go.
