DETROIT – The Detroit Lions jumped head first into the free agent pool on Monday. Media reports have the Lions agreeing to deals with New England Patriots free agent defensive end Trey Flowers, cornerback Justin Coleman and tight end Jesse James. The club added wideout Danny Amendola on a one-year, $5.75 million pact.
Flowers reportedly will receive a five-deal that averages at least $16 million per season, while Coleman agreed to a four-year contract worth $36 million, according to NFL Network, making him the league’s highest-paid nickelback. Terms have yet to be reported on James’ deal.
None of the three can be officially signed until the new league year opens on Wednesday.
