We traded 244 for Flowers and 258 plus Miami is eating most of the money. This seems like a hell of a trade for Washington.

I mean... Its a little-to-no risk move from Washington but calling this trade for a low-tier starter "a hell of a trade" is pushing it a little. He was overpaid and probably the worst player on our average OL and seemingly management was pretty desperate to trade him away.

He played well for us in 2019 and we're paying him $3 million to be an upgrade to our LG. So, yes, hell of a trade for that "risk".

Counts 3 million against the cap for the WFT, which is half of the amount that he counts against the Phins. So someone can say it isn't a good trade for WFT but they get the player at half the cost of the team that doesn't have the player and a slight drop in a later draft pick.

Flowers played well early last season when most of the other Miami free agent signings were struggling. But midseason forth he was mediocre at best and mostly in the way. It was obvious the Dolphins would try to move on from him. 

As a Canes fan I'm happy for Flowers because Washington is the only spot he's looked decent in the NFL. He should accept that and try to stay there as long as possible.

From a Miami standpoint this allows Robert Hunt to move inside to guard, where he should have been in the first place. Kindley can shift over to left guard while Hunt takes the right side. Not sure about right tackle. Could be targeted early second round with the #36 pick.

I thought Flowers sucked?

He was abysmal as an OT.  Got moved inside by Washington and was solid in his only season.  Fins signed him and he was mediocre at best.  Very easily replaceable.
