Giants second-year offensive tackle Ereck Flowers has something against ESPN’s Jordan Raanan and last night after the Packers game things got intense.

After the team suffered it’s third straight loss to the Packers, 23-16, Ereck Flowers was at the centerfold of of why the team struggled profusely.

During the media session after the game, Flowers was at his locker speaking to two reporters when Raanan approached. NJ.com’s Dan Duggan – who was probably one of the two reporters asking Flowers questions.

Via Dan Duggan, here’s the transcript of the altercation:

Flowers: “Hey, get out my face man. Don’t come over here.”

When Raanan didn’t move, Flowers moved his face close to the reporter’s and asked, “You hear me?”

Raanan: “I’m just trying to do my job.”

Flowers: “Go over there.”

Raanan: “I’m just trying to do my job.”

Flowers: “Get the (expletive) out of my face, bro.”

Raanan: “I’m just trying to do my job.”

Flowers then said, “Go over there, man,” as he shoved Raanan.

Flowers turned back to his locker and Raanan walked away.

It is unknown what exactly the history is between Jordan Raanan and Ereck Flowers but clearly something about him made the No. 9 pick from the 2015 Draft angry about the new ESPN reporter, who was formally with NJ.com

Flowers’ struggles were well documented during Raanan’s live tweeting of the game yesterday:

On Tuesday, Ben McAdoo announced that Ereck Flowers will be discplined but didn’t dis-close exactly what the disclipine would be, calling the matter, “internal.”

Flowers did contact Raanan and apologized.
