Lions swipe Trey Flowers and become Patriots West

Lions swipe Trey Flowers and become Patriots West

The signing also reunites Amendola with Lions general manager Bob Quinn and coach Matt Patricia from their time with the New England Patriots.

Things didn't look good when the New England Patriots failed to franchise tag Flowers, but still it seemed like the Patriots would try and retain Flowers' services.

Flowers is arguably the top pass-rusher set to hit the market in 2019 National Football League free agency. What a nice breath of fresh air that is from how previous regimes have operated.

Amendola signed a one-year $5.75m deal days after being released by the Miami Dolphins. The Patriots product has 21 sacks over the last three seasons.

Detroit desperately needed to upgrade their pass rushing in Patricia's second season, especially with former first-round pick Ziggy Ansah headed to the open market.

Bolton said that it would be a mistake to fall "for the North Korean action for action ploy" because it doesn't work. Leading by example: Kim Jong-un casts his vote.

Also on Monday, former Patriots receiver Danny Amendola signed a one-year deal with the Lions.

The veteran wideout is in Detroit Monday taking a physical and as long as there are no complications, he will be a Lion.

Coleman, who turns 26 later this month, had an interception and 10 passes defensed in 16 games (five starts) for Seattle last season. Last season, he intercepted a Matthew Stafford pass to seal a 28-14 win over the Lions at Ford Field. Contract details were not yet known.

The 33-year-old Amendola has 485 career receptions for 4,684 yards with 20 touchdowns and expects to be one of Matthew Stafford's go-to receivers. Crabtree finished with 54 catches for 607 yards and three touchdowns. In 34 games, he has 78 grabs for 1,005 yards and 11 scores, numbers that make him Detroit's immediate No. 1 tight end.

Before the Lions rewarded Flowers for his hard work in New England, Belichick had already put together a deal that helped them brace for the impact of Flowers' departure.
