Per ESPN's Josina Anderson, the Bills are having "some level of discussions" in regard to signing pending free agent from the New England Patriots Trey Flowers.

Flowers, 25, a fourth-round pick by New England in the 2015 draft, led the Patriots in sacks (7.5), quarterback hits (21) and forced fumbles (three) last season.

Flowers can line up all over the defensive line and excels against both the pass and the run. What a nice breath of fresh air that is from how previous regimes have operated.

- The Detroit Lions will reportedly sign defensive back Justin Coleman.


The Lions made Patricia their head coach, while Amendola signed a two-year, $12 million contract with the Dolphins.

Here's a recap of what the Lions did on Monday: (Note: NFL Free Agency officially starts Wednesday at 4 p.m., so players aren't allowed to sign until then). Pelissero adds New England did not plan to offer such a deal, echoing a report Monday from The Athletic stating the Lions' offer was "significantly better". Marvin Jones was third on the club with 508 receiving yards. The former Seattle Seahawks defender, expected to fill the nickel defender role on pass defense, will get a four-year, $36 million contract, per Rapoport. Crabtree finished with 54 catches for 607 yards and three touchdowns.

James played his first four seasons with the Steelers, making 120 catches for 1,189 yards and nine touchdowns.
