  • How signing Justin Coleman impacts the Lions roster and offseason

First reported by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Lions intend to sign free agent defensive end Trey Flowers.

In moving to Detroit, Amendola reunites with Lions head coach Matt Patricia, who previously served as a defensive coach with the New England Patriots. Flowers' move leaves Brian Flores and the reformed Dolphins empty-handed.

The Detroit Lions continue to build Patriots Midwest.

His arrival will help lessen the loss of Golden Tate, who the Lions traded to the Philadelphia Eagles last season. Though his sack numbers are far from eye-popping he was New England's most consistent pass rusher and also a force against the run.

The Detroit Lions were very active Monday, and it wasn't hard to notice a theme among the players they reportedly agreed to contracts with. NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport believes it will eclipse $16 million in average annual value. Coleman, 25, went undrafted out of Tennessee in 2015 and bounced around a few practice squads before sticking with - you guessed it - the Patriots.

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

The Lions can officially sign Flowers when the new league year opens on Wednesday. He averaged 10.4 yards per catch.
