The Redskins signed Ereck Flowers, a former first-round pick and starting tackle -- but they plan to use him at guard. Flowers, who visited the facility Monday, will also be used at tackle as second-year Geron Christian recovers from a torn MCL suffered during the season. The Redskins need depth and a lot of options inside, especially at left guard. The Redskins went through numerous players at left guard last year because of injuries. They might draft one next month, but they needed healthy options and like Flowers' physical play and athleticism. Flowers struggled at tackle and was cut by the Giants, who drafted him in 2015. He has made 55 starts -- all at tackle.
