Patriots will not reunite with Danny Amendola

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

Instead, he's reunited with ex-New England defensive coordinator Matt Patricia in Detroit.

The Lions got a breakout season from Kenny Golladay in 2018 but second-leading receiver Golden Tate was dealt to the Philadelphia Eagles at the deadline. The Patriots product has 21 sacks over the last three seasons.

Deals can not become official until the start of the new league year, at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

The Lions were desperate for a pass-rusher, and Flowers was arguably the best one available in free agency.

During the lead up to the offseason, the Buffalo Bills front office brass led by head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane have said they will not be neglecting addressing needs on defense.

Flowers helped the Patriots win Super Bowl LIII this past season, 13-3, over the Los Angeles Rams. In addition, Flowers had 57 total tackles, nine for loss, two passes defended and three forced fumbles.

A source told ESPN's Dianna Russini that the deal is for one year, $4.5 million and could be worth up to $5.75 million.

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

The Detroit Lions have signed free agent WR Danny Amedola. Hand excelled in an in-and-out role as a rookie but figures to play more on the edge this season with Ansah gone.
