Report: Giants’ Flowers Shoved ESPN’s Raanan In Locker Room

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBSNewYork) — Odell Beckham Jr. may have kept his composure on the field in Sunday night’s game at Green Bay, but one of his teammates could not do the same in the locker room.

Following the Giants’ 23-16 loss to the Packers, offensive tackle Ereck Flowers shoved ESPN reporter Jordan Raanan, reported.

Flowers was speaking to two other reporters in front of his locker when Raanan approached. According to the report, the 6-foot-2, 329-pound lineman then interrupted a question from another reporter and told Ranaan: “Hey, get out of my face, man. Don’t come over here.”

According to the report, Raanan stood his ground, and then Flowers got in his face and said, “You hear me?”

After some back-and-forth in which Raanan repeatedly said he was only trying to do his job, Flowers told him: “Go over there, man” and then shoved him, reported.

The Giants declined to comment to

On his Twitter account early Monday morning, Raanan posted: “All good. Minor thing. No need for anyone to be concerned.”

Flowers, the Giants’ first-round draft pick in 2015, struggled Sunday night, allowing a sack and being called for a holding penalty.
