Danny Amendola #80 of the New England Patriots reacts at the end of the second quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium on February 4, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to congratulate his now former teammate on his huge contract (the actual terms of the deal have not yet been reported).
Instead, he's reunited with ex-New England defensive coordinator Matt Patricia in Detroit.
In reacting to the Flower news, NBC's Peter King proposed a new rule that the National Football League might have no other choice but to incorporate in wake of recent events.
Per Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the team is closing in on a deal with former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Justin Coleman. He missed all but one game his rookie season with an injury, but helped the Patriots to the last three Super Bowls - winning two.
Ian Rapoport said the deal will pay Coleman $26 million over four years. Last season, he intercepted a Matthew Stafford pass to seal a 28-14 win over the Lions at Ford Field. All contracts agreed to can not become official until Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET. His total catches were down but his 14.1 yards per reception were a career high.
