  • New England Patriots defensive end Trey Flowers reacts after sacking New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday Dec. 30 2018 in Foxborough Mass

Flowers, coming off a 7.5-sack season, will be reunited with the former Patriots defensive coordinator, who is trying to recreate his own version of New England.

Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to congratulate his now former teammate on his huge contract (the actual terms of the deal have not yet been reported).

The Detroit Lions continue to build Patriots Midwest.

Per Ian Rapoport, it's a one-year deal that includes a $4.5-million guaranteed base salary.

Danny Amendola didn't stay unemployed long.




The Detroit Lions have closed in on a contract with Justin Coleman that will pay him $36 million over four years and make him the highest-paid nickel cornerback in the NFL.

Amendola, a 33-year-old slot receiver, is entering his 11th National Football League season. Harris is a second-year player on the team's practice squad. Last season, he intercepted a Matthew Stafford pass to seal a 28-14 win over the Lions at Ford Field. Detroit on Monday inked ex-Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James, according to the NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

James had 30 catches for a career-best 423 yards and two scores last season.

Amendola signed with the Dolphins early in 2018 on a two-year deal. He averaged 10.4 yards per catch.
