WR Danny Amendola Has Made His Free Agency Decision

Former Steeler Jesse James gets huge pay raise from Lions

In moving to Detroit, Amendola reunites with Lions head coach Matt Patricia, who previously served as a defensive coach with the New England Patriots.

It looks like Danny Amendola is heading to the Motor City.

When it comes to the Detroit Lions, trying to determine who might be their targets in free agency comes with one prerequisite: Have they played for the New England Patriots before? The two sides have reportedly come to an agreement hours into the start of the league's legal tampering period. And on Monday, the Patriots lost their two biggest free agents with defensive end Trey Flowers off to the Lions and left tackle Trent Brown moving on to the Raiders. According to The Athletic's Connor Hughes, Flowers shortened his list to the Lions and Dolphins before ultimately choosing Detroit. Flowers will immediately fill the role Ansah was supposed to play. The Patriots product has 21 sacks over the last three seasons. 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. The deal is rumored to be a five-year deal worth anywhere between $16-$17 million per season.

Flowers' market inflated over the last several days as the other elite free agents at his position were halted from hitting the open market by the franchise tag or a new deal with their original team.

Past year he recorded 7.5 sacks, plus three forced fumbles, both career highs.
