Summary

Tre Flowers was the biggest free agency acquisition that the Lions made this offseason. They committed to a five-year, 90 million dollar deal with 56 million of that sum guaranteed. Flowers is an excellent edge defender who proved in his time in New England that he could hold the point of attack and set the edge. He'll fill the shoes of the departed Ziggy Ansah. Given the arguably better supporting linemen that he'll work with this year in Da'shawn Hand, A'Shawn Robinson and Mike Daniels, it would not be unreasonable to project 50 combined tackles and just under 10 sacks.

Lions | Trey Flowers activated from PUP list (Sat Aug 10, 11:07 AM) - The Detroit Lions activated DE Trey Flowers (shoulder) from the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Aug. 10.

Our View: Flowers was the big ticket free agent for the Lions, reunited with his defensive coordinator in New England, Detroit head coach Matt Patricia. Along with Mike Daniels, he should provide the pass rush punch the defense lacked.
