New York Giants offensive lineman Ereck Flowers has finally received a ruling regarding his locker room encounter with Jordan Raanan.
Finally, New York Giants second-year offensive lineman Ereck Flowers has received word from the NFL regarding his locker room encounter with ESPN’s Jordan Raanan over a month ago.
A league official told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that there will be no punishment handed down.
NFL determined this week that Giants OT Ereck Flowers did not violate personal conduct policy when he shoved a reporter in GB, per official.

The NFL closed its investigation into Flowers’ shove of a reporter this week and said there was “insufficient evidence to support a finding that Flowers violated the personal conduct policy. There will be no further action taken beyond what occurred at the club level.”
Interestingly enough, an executive from another organization argued in opposition of Flowers. He/she stated that what the “329-pound Flowers did was akin to a criminal act, assault.”
The NFL disagreed and the matter is now closed.
Head coach Ben McAdoo weight in on the matter:
“He understands that he cannot behave that way,” McAdoo said in October. “It’s unacceptable and it’s important for us all to have a professional relationship with the media.”
Flowers later apologized to Raanan shortly after the incident took place, one that occurred in front of his locker room after the Giants’ 23-16 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
